Personalities | Papa Roach | Twenty-First Century | Rock

(Vocal/instrumental group, 1993–present)

Stars of the nu metal era at the turn of the century, Californians Papa Roach – Jacoby Shaddix (vocals), Jerry Horton (guitar), Tobin Esperance (bass) and David Buckner (drums) – had to wait until Infest (2000) to break through, alongside the likes of Limp Bizkit. 2002’s lovehatetragedy saw increased sales, but by 2003’s Getting Away With Murder many fans felt the band had softened their sound for the sake of radio airplay. Despite such grudges, the record sold well, seeing the band reach platinum status.
