Trapt @ The Clubhouse

You may not be familiar with the name, but chances are you're more familiar with the band Trapt than you realize, especially if you've been to the movies in the past seven years. The band's 2003 single "Headstrong" has been featured on the soundtrack to such cinema classics as Never Back Down and Grind. "Headstrong" has also replaced Drowning Pool's "Bodies" as the song you are most likely to hear during the movie trailer for a film that involves a lot of kicking. Thanks in large part to the exposure brought on by being featured in every terrible action movie of the past seven years, "Headstrong" is the still the band's biggest single. But the California alt-rockers are not content to resign themselves to one-hit-wonder status just yet. In October, the group released its fourth studio album, No Apologies. Copies have been sent to Jason Statham, The Rock, Jean-Claude Van Damme, and Channing Tatum in the hopes that one of their new songs will be featured in dumb action movies for years to come.
