Gym Class Heroes‘ VH1 Unplugged premiered online last night, and as it turns out, the New York-based group’s songs don’t sound all that different when played acoustically. If anything, stripping down their tunes helped bring the focus on frontman Travie McCoy‘s gift for storytelling.
GCH’s friend and collaborator Patrick Stump played soloist for the evening, filling in for Bruno Mars on “Billionaire”, Ryan Tedder on “The Fighter” and Adam Levine on “Stereo Hearts” (an ironic song to play unplugged). Flame-haired vixen Neon Hitch also showed up to lend her voice to The Papercut Chronicles II single “Ass Back Home”. Watch all the performances below.
