Papa Roach lead singer Jacoby Shaddix has lost his vocal abilities… But that didn’t stop him from forming Papa Roach in 1993. However, now he has some more vocal problems, and people who still live in 1999 are worried.
Here’s what Jacoby has to say about it:
“I think I’ll be all right. I’ve got a speech and vocal therapist at the current time to learn how to sing through this and work through this and take care of myself. Really it’s just a matter of having a little bit more discipline than I’m used to, you know, as far as vocal rest and warm ups and cool downs and all that kind of stuff.“

Cut my throat into pieces,
This is my last resort
Suffocation, but still singing
Don’t give a fuck if Alex’s ears are still bleeding

Fresh of the recently debuted Korn‘s dubstep track, I got an amazing (and very original) idea for a Top 10: let’s take a look at some of the most drastic transformations in hard rock and metal.
List is mostly based on music, though we all know metal goes hand in hand with fashion, so we’ll feature some of that as well. Read on to find ten examples of some of the most horrific, embarrassing or simply plain stupid transformations, in what is could be the first out of two articles.
I know, a festival that also has Papa Roach, P.O.D, Puddle of Mudd, and… wait for it… Asking Alexandria! Holy shit, it’s like the 90’s and their metalcore bastard child decided to indulge in an orgy. I wouldn’t be surprised if they were there as well… If you got the Orgy joke, you get 5 points taken from your metal achievements scale.
I have no idea who came up with this brilliant
joke fest, but I’m disappointed that they didn’t gas the place or something. I mean come on. Noisecreep has a review that sounds like it was written by a 13 year old girl who had a huge crush on Fred Durst back when she was young and stupid enough to be listening to nu metal, and you can read it here.
To close this pathetic article, I have a hypothetical: If I have a penis, but no one has seen it, does it exist? Having a sort of crisis here, would appreciate a word of comfort. I mean, my life’s already come down to writing about Staind on weekly basis, which is just one step above being in Staind.
Maybe I’m just old, bitter and forgetful, but I was quite happy in having completely forgetting about Papa Roach. They say ‘ignorance is bliss’, after all. But what did I find upon browsing the latest Metal headlines today? I discovered that not only do the band still exist, but that they’re still writing music and wanting to “evolve” allegedly. Bleh, I’d give a buck to the first person to pass me a bucket.
So what’s in the Papa Roach news today? Well, Amy Harris recently conducted an interview with frontman Jacoby Shaddix (also known as Cody Dick, because, I don’t know, he likes dick? Maybe?). Apparently the band released a new album last year, which was half new songs and half live tracks. I’m going to speculate that the band couldn’t quite find the energy to actually write an entire new album, so just gave up half way and slapped some live tracks on, so they could sell it asap. Despite this laziness, the band are also working on new music, which will apparently see them “evolving” again (read: “Selling out”). Read an excerpt from the chat below.
“The jams, the music is sick. We want to separate ourselves from the pack again. When we came out in ’99 and 2000, we were like part of an underground movement and then that was really cool. Then that movement kind of fell apart and there weren’t many bands still out there doing it. So we evolved and separated ourselves again and evolved into more of a rock band. Now we have been lumped into all these rock bands and we are like, “Cool we like that. We like that sense of community in rock.” But I want to evolve it into something more even of our own sound[…] I wouldn’t necessarily say that is the move to make it creatively original. I just think the music we have been listening to, we have been listening to everything from honkytonk country music to electronic music to heavy metal to punk rock. I don’t want to make an average white-guy rock record. I want to make a fucking record that inspires people to fuck, fight, love, forgive. An inspiring album that makes people want to move, makes people want to do something.”
If you managed to read all that, congratulations, you’re infinitely more sad than me. But anyways, there you go, Jacoby Shaddix is going to inspire you. I hope you’re all prepared for this event of the millennium when Papa Roach come out with another album.
All kinds of evil music spirits are set to grab Southern California by the balls this September, so you’d better run the fuck away if you live in that area.
Why? Cause Epicenter will have Limp Bizkit, Staind, Papa Roach, P.O.D., Puddle Of Mudd and Five Finger Death Punch. No, I’m not making this up. Yes, you should be afraid. Yes, do touch me there.
“Limp Bizkit is back, more dangerous and contagious than ever with our original lineup, NEW album, ‘Gold Cobra’, and Epicenter to take your rock and roll fantasy past the extreme,” says Fred Durst. “I promise this will be a party you do NOT want to miss. Epicenter will be our first and only Southern California shindig. And fellas, don’t be mad that Epicenter will be filled with women…that’s how we roll.“

The good news is that it happens on September 24, so you do have enough time to plan your escape. The band news is, well, written above.
