Über Papa Roach
Great big guitars and steadfast, drumstick-twirling breaks fronted by an angry rapper/cusser -- that's Papa Roach in a nutshell. If you miss the genre-smashing hybrid of Faith No More's breakout record, these guys will be happy to fill the void. Regardless of whether you consider the fact to be positive or negative, Papa Roach took the nu-metal world by storm in 2000 with the massive hit single "Last Resort." The album that single came off of, Infest, sold about a gajillion copies, making Papa Roach a household name practically overnight. Their 2002 follow-up, Lovehatetragedy, didn't break any records, but the band managed to hold onto a respectable following. "Getting Away With Murder," their first new single in two years, was released in July 2004, and led off their album of the same name. Papa Roach's fourth album, The Paramour Sessions, came out in fall of '06.
