Flobots are probably the most famous rap group that no one who actually listens to rap cares about: Tuneless, funkless, unrepentantly emo, pretty much dominating modern rock stations at the end of the decadeor at least until Sugar Ray released Music for Cougars. Someone plays a violin, too. Opening is K-Os, a tireless Canadian MC with lots of great ideas (sampling "Love Buzz" and getting Metric's Emily Haines to sing the hookhey, we're down) but he usually equates to the indie-rap will.i.am.
