Fueled By Ramen's 15th anniversary (w/ Cobra Starship & Gym Class Heroes) @ Terminal 5 (review, video)

Fueled By Ramen ended their 15th anniversary event on Friday with a stacked lineup of the label's freshest talent. Versaemerge took the stage for the last time this year and rocked the house hard. The band went through a handful of crowd favorites including "Stranger" and "Fixed at Zero". The band is working on their new album for FBR which will hit stores in the near future.

Next up was a Rocket To The Moon and the Massachussetts group performed a tight set. Hell, they even performed the ubercatchy Fueled By Ramen Holiday Sale song! Next at bat was The Academy Is.. who went through their 2005 FBR debut Almost Here in its entirety. Many girls in the crowd swooned hard at William Beckett's great stage presence. Cobra Starship vocalist Gabe Saporta even came out during the track "Classifieds". The Academy Is... are currently in the studio working on their new album.

Gym Class Heroes tore the roof of Terminal 5, delivering an energetic performance. Travie McCoy commanded the stage with such swagger which made the ladies go wild. The group will release their new album The Papercut Chronicles II on October 25th via FBR.

Headlining act Cobra Starship exploded on the stage and kept the energy going throughout their set. The band performed a very mixed setlist of songs (most from their first two albums). During the set, Gabe Saporta announced that he was trying to break the Guinness World Record for most sunglasses worn indoors. Tons of Cobra Sharship shades were thrown in the crowd (some were even handed out as people walked into the venue). While it is not known if the record was broken, the band went through the rest of their set which included their latest single "You Make Me Feel" with Sabi.

The crowd went insane for CS when they performed the song that started it all for the band "Snakes On A Plane (Bring It) as their encore (which also featured appearances from William Beckett and Travie McCoy). came out At the end of their set, the lights went on and Rick Astley's "Never Gonna Give You Up" came on the monitors ending a two night celebration of Fueled By Ramen. The only thing left to do is wonder who will perform at Fueled By Ramen's 20th anniversary show!
