I could be wrong but I'm sure this was meant to be a joke of some sort whether it be an insult to metal or perhaps poking fun at FOB for covering Pantera. Either way it was disgusting and lost on that crowd. Piss Offs.

Or, it could have just been some normal dudes who happen to be in Gym Class Heroes that actually like the song, and thought it would be fun and humorous to play something totally different from what they are at their show. I really don't find this insulting at all, but obviously that's just me.

From the way this looks to me, theyre tryin to insult metal. That's just something you dont do. If you want to live that is.......if I was at that show (which I never would be because I would never drop that low in my life as to attend a warped tour) he would be dead. All those mainstream fa**ets on the stage would be. I heard from a buddy that at the STL date someone called him the n-word and the guy went onstage and the singer hit em with the mic. Real manly like, lets hit him with something he doesnt have to hit me back with. Shows how 'beast' all the warped tour doitch-bag bands are. I feel bad for All That Remains and As I Lay Dying for havin to tour with these f*gs.

Most of you really are taking this way too seriously.

"if I was at that show he would be dead. All those mainstream fa**ets on the stage would be."
I'm also get the feeling you're just talking out yer a$$ and shouldn't be taken seriously either.

Gym Class Heroes blow though. I guess we can all agree at least on that.

I have no clear view on what this "band" (hahaha) was trying to do...insult metal, grab some attention, or show something different...well I don't care! If you aren't metal, don't (even try, hahaha) to "play" a metal song.

*What were they thinking????*

ok i was there the video clip $uck$ it was not that bad for a nonmetal band and it was like 2 min.plus it was worth seeing emo kids trying to circle pit !!! there were only like 3 metal bands there so it was a funny perk. this is why metal heads don't go to the warped tour anyway just be glad it was not a slayer cover for then it would have $uck$ harder. lol iam not saying good job GCH but not bad .

Ok first of all that was not really that funny. In the video for a guy who sings like.... You know... his screaming wasn't even that bad. You people who are like "If you aren't metal don't try..." How do you even think metal is/was made? Like think of it theres a movie that tells you about the past of Metal music. The thing is is started off with Rock and then people learn how to play more harder stuff. Then bands think hey this would make it sound so heavy and then they find more and more ways to make it heavier. And also the warped tour isn't all mainstream there were like 3 actually F-ing awesome bands. Lamb Of God could probably ruin those guys but the thing is.... It doesn't F-ing matter. Like who cares. Lamb Of God Isn't even that good. Actually Metal (or most of it) isn't that good.... Hardcore (most of it) is the SHIITTT!!
AND..... NOT ALL emo kids don't know what metal is.... people usually call me emo and stuff but honestly I don't even like emo music. I think hardcore and stuff like that some metal is awesome.
Back to the topic.... Gym Class Hero or whatever is a cr.ap band props for trying metal but they totally need to work on it if they are going to try to do it more often. And the instruments totally need some tuning. Cause it was totally F on Stellar.

Sab you're just a retardcore dancing scene kid. you don't even know what you're talking about. and hardcore itself is sh**. its so repetitive. i went to see obituary in october or november of last year, this band marauder played. me and my friend actually counted the number of breakdowns in their songs, we had 40 at the end of their set, and they only played 14 songs. I also hate hardcore because of the "hardcore" dancers. Going to a show to take out your agression by spinning around in circles spinning your fists? Every hardcore dude at that show was overweight as hell too lmfao. There were enough flatbrim caps and "Famous" shirts and basketball jerseys in there i felt like i was at the mall.
