After discovering Metric via an MTV show on new bands, Gym Class Heroes guitarist Disashi Lumumba-Kasongo went straight to the almighty Internet to learn more. "I liked them so much that I bought their albums," he tells SPIN.com.

Find out what Disashi loves about Metric -- from frontwoman Emily Haines' lyrics to Jimmy Shaw's angular guitar riffs -- in the video blog below. Then scroll down further to see Metric playing a new song from their as-yet-untitled fourth album, due in the very near future, and the video for "Combat Baby," which sparked Disashi's interest in the first place.
