Matthew Ryan "Matt" McGinley (born February 24, 1983) is the co-founder and drummer of Gym Class Heroes.[1]

Career[edit]

McGinley and Travis McCoy met in school in gym class (though it is supposedly said that it did not give the name to the band) and quickly became friends.[2] The two decided to form a band, the now popular Gym Class Heroes. The lineup was complete when former members Milo Bonacci and Ryan Geise joined, who were later replaced by now permanent members Disashi and Eric. He has recently put out a full-length CD with an Alternative rock/Punk rock band called Kill the Frontman.
