Papa Roach

Saturday, May 18 @ 8:45pm | Monster Main Stage

Starting out as a hardcore punk- and rap-influenced outfit, Papa Roach eventually grew into a straight-ahead hard rock ensemble with strong heavy metal leanings and a knack for pairing uncompromising power with pure pop acumen. Emerging in the mid-'90s, the group broke big in 2001 with the release of their sophomore effort and major-label debut Infest, which went triple platinum on the strength of the nu-metal- and hip-hop-inspired single "Last Resort." A move toward a less rap-forward style on albums like lovehatetragedy (2002) and Getting Away with Murder (2004) did little to hurt them commercially (the former went gold and the latter went platinum), and by the time of the release of their ninth studio long-player, 2017's industrial metal-tinged Crooked Teeth, the Grammy Award-nominated Northern California-based group had sold over 20 million albums and outlived many of their alt-metal contemporaries.
