Quotes:

I hope people connect with Papa Roach's music. I want to cause every emotion in people. I want them to fight, to fuck; I want to bring out their violence, their sadness and their happiness.

Band Name Origins:

  • The band name came from lead singer, Jacoby Shaddix, whose stepfather's grandfather's last name is "R-o-a-t-c-h". Being more than a 100 years of age, he was called "Papa" by everyone in his family. They decided to go along with the name "Papa Roach" by dropping the "T" and using the cockroach as a symbol of longevity. Shaddix and his band used an analogy and that is: "when a nuclear bomb is dropped and it explodes; the whole place is annihilated and the only thing that's left are cockroaches." Submitted by: Cordelia's Straight Facts
  • Coby Dick has a vast collection of pet cockroaches. He used to joke about himself being the "papa roach" as he took care of them. Unfortunately, Jeremy, the first (and oldest) of the collection died only last week from old age. Submitted by: Anduril

Funniest Song Lyrics:

"She Loves Me Not"
The Funny Lyrics:
Life's not fair
I'm a jerk
Why They're Funny:
Pity party, anybody?
Submitted by: Joce
 

Repetitive Song Lyrics:

"Getting Away With Murder"
The Repetitive Lyrics:
Getting away (x9)
Why They're Repetitive:
Okay, so in the middle of the song when it gets all cool and stuff and they get into the guitar solo. Jacoby decides to say the words "getting away" over and over again before proceeding with "with murder" But he's obviously got to just get it engraved into your brain that he's getting away with murder.
Submitted by: Gee
"Last Resort"
The Repetitive Lyrics:
Cuz I'm loosing my sight
Loosing my mind
Wish somebody would tell me I'm fine
Loosing my sight
Loosing my mind
Wish somebody would tell me I'm fine
Why They're Repetitive:
GAWD can't this singer think of anything else to sing about? Living perhaps?
Submitted by: Celeste

Nonsensical Song Lyrics:

"Last Resort"
The Nonsensical Lyrics:
Wish somebody would tell me I'm fine
Why They're Nonsensical:
This song is about suicidal depression. Saying "you're fine" is actually invalidating in that scenario.
Submitted by: Amanda
"Tear My Heart Open"
The Nonsensical Lyrics:
Tear my heart open
and sew myself shut
Why They're Nonsensical:
How can you tearing your heart open and sew yourself shut? That doesn't make sense! Furthermore, if you tried doing that, literally, you'd clearly die. In the video, it's saying his girlfriend is an alcoholic and it's hinting at it, but it sounds like he's trying to say she tore his heart open (figuratively) and he sewed himself shut. So why not just say that?
Submitted by: AnnaBoo
There are additional nonsensical lyrics available.

Insincere Song Lyrics:

"Time And Time Again"
The Insincere Lyrics:
Time and time again
You think about yourself before you think about me
Why They're Insincere:
Papa Roach's lead singer just yells these lyrics and keeps repeating them, but he doesn't actually sound hurt by the fact that the girl he is with is selfish.

Misrhymed Song Lyrics:

"Time And Time Again"
The Misrhymed Lyrics:
You're so selfish
You're making me want to end this relationship
Why They're Misrhymed:
Well, selfish and relationship don't really rhyme from what I can hear.

Bad Ringtone Choices:

"Getting Away With Murder"
The Lyrics:
I feel irrational
So confrontational
To tell the truth again
I am getting away with murder
it isn't possible
to never tell the truth
but the reality is I'm getting away with murder
Why:
Pretty obvious you wouldn't want this ringtone when you're being questioned about someone's murder.
