Papa Roach Is Smashing Zombies With Aggro-Emo Sentiment in Fort Lauderdale
Twelve years later, the youth of today listen to electronic music and rapping to rock is a taboo shunned to the most mayo'd suburbs of Middle America.
But Papa Roach has never stopped pushing forward with its one-of-a-kind blend of aggro-emo sentiment, nü-metal vocals, and skater-punk guitar riffs.
Plus, it kills zombies.
Well, at least in music videos.

Last year, Shaddix (that is his real name, BTW) told Vevo.com that the concept for the band's video for "Still Swingin'" came from his 8-year-old son, whom he named Jagger Monroe Shaddix.
According to the elder Shaddix, he approached his progeny for advice about the Roach's upcoming video. Jagger pitched a totally brutal zombie slugfest with no peanut butter or jelly but definitely a ton of baseball bats.
And the rest is nü-screamo rap-rock history.
Papa Roach. April 16, at Revolution Live, 100 SW Third Ave., Fort Lauderdale. Visit jointherevolution.net, or call 954-449-1025.
