Papa Roach began their musical journey way back in 1993, when lead singer Jacoby Shaddix and drummer Dave Buckner met on the Vacaville High School football field, discussed music and began a stellar musical trip that made them one of the top rock acts of the 2000s.
The two fellas actually were joined by bassist Will James and guitarist Jerry Horton, going far enough to participate in a school contest by rocking Jimi Hendrix’s “Fire.” The gigs were there, but the boys were still forging their craft and signature sound.
James left in 1996 and was replaced by Tobin Esperance. By this point, the group already had a debut EP under their belt, 1994’s “Potatoes for Christmas.”
But the mainstream success was still a few years away. At the turn of millennia, in the year of 1999, the boys were offered a contract with DreamWorks Records, and the party was ready to start. Two years prior to entering the big league, Papa Roach have self-released their debut album “Old Friends From Young Years” in 1997.
The year of 2000 saw the P’ Roach gang exploding worldwide. Their sophomore album, “Infest,” was released in April, garnering the group a global following thanks to such hit singles as “Broken Home,” Last Resort,” and “Between Angels and Insects.”
Massive crowds and heavy touring was what followed, and the record ultimately old over 8 million copies around the globe, establishing Papa Roach as on of the key figures of the uprising nu metal movement.
“Lovehatetragedy” followed in 2002. Led by “NFL 2003”-featured single “She Loves Me Not,” the album was certified gold in the States, selling over 3 million copies around the world. Additionally, the album remains the band’s highest-charting album on US charts, reaching No. 2 spot on the Billboard 200 chart.
The success continued and the Roach train kept a-rolling. “Getting Away With Murder” was released in 2004, and was certified platinum in the US with nearly 3 million sold, mostly thanks to the widely-renowned title track single.
Up next was “The Paramour Sessions” in 2006. The album achieved solid success, although it paled in comparison to its predecessors, but the band was still a strong unit packed to the gills with recognizable tunes. However, the years of hard work and rocking took their toll on some of the band members, and it was announced in 2007 that co-founding drummer Dave Bucker will take a break from the band in order to “go clean his act up ’cause he was out of his mind.” Ultimately, the break was confirmed as permanent within a few months, leaving the band without its founding member.
But the show had to go on. Tony Palermo was hired as the new skinsman and the group went on to present “Metamorphosis” in 2009, “The Connection” in 2012, and “F.E.A.R.” in January 2015. The band still packs a punch and had long established itself as one of the rock titans. The fans are still there, and always will be, “because days come and go and my feelings for you are forever.”
