New Music: Gym Class Heroes f/ Ryan Tedder – ‘The Fighter’

The Fighter

Gym Class Heroes gets in the ring with Ryan Tedder on “The Fighter,” an uplifting cut off the band’s new album The Papercut Chronicles II (Nov. 15). The OneRepublic frontman lends his production skills and vocals to the empowering anthem.

“If you fall, pick yourself up off the floor/ And when your bones can’t take no more/ Just remember what you’re here for,” sings Travie McCoy, while Tedder echoes words of encouragement.

Did they deliver a knockout? Weigh in below.

    Man the justifications keep finlyg. You’ve been fished-in.How often the “experts” underestimate the determination and inherent attractiveness of the common manNever underestimate the power of pre-teen girls and elderly house wives who find him attractive enough to vote.FYI: The pre-teen girls and elderly house wives make up the overwhelming majority of AI’s audience. David Cook has more of the sex appeal they were looking for.Why? I think the audience identified with this risk-taker who came a greater distance than the youngster from outside Salt Lake City.I don’t think the majority of the AI audience is thinking that deeply about their choice. Just take a presidential election as an example, what do most people end up voting for? Likability.
