    Fresh off their performance at Sunday night's AMAs, Gym Class Heroes popped by our office to talk about their latest, The Papercut Chronicles II, for our "See the Music" series.

    They enlightened us about not one, but two songs from the album. First, they offered up the scoop on "Stereo Hearts," one of the most pleasant pop songs of the year. Then they spouted off bout another.

    Vocalist Travie McCoy revealed that the song is about that "uncomfortable feeling I have always had being surrounded by people who feel very comfortable. It has a lot to do with my anxiety that I've battled since I was a kid…The naked nightmare is a metaphor, for when you wake up, in front of the class, completely naked. That's how I feel when we are at functions, like the AMAs or a party. It's about the super tense and uncomfortable feeling I get."

    Who hasn't felt that way one time or another?

    Watch the video below!



    Do you relate to what Travie McCoy said about anxiety?
