The splintering of emo into ridiculous sub-genres has thrown up hilarious music lately. Thankfully, GCH’s much-heralded ‘emo hip-hop’ have little to do with the rubbish peddled by Fred Durst and his cronies. In fact this is nothing more threatening than Day-Glo schoolyard party-hop that’s notable for three reasons: 1) It’s built around a sample of ‘Breakfast In America’ by Supertramp. 2) It has Fall Out Boy’s Patrick Stump on vocals. 3) They’re so determined for it to be a hit it’s been on both their albums. Gah.
