Papa Roach frontman Jacoby Shaddix told a Michigan radio station this past weekend that the band will celebrate the 20th anniversary of its breakthrough album, 2000’s Infest, next year. The band’s second full-length record and first major label release, Infest peaked at Number Five on the Billboard 200 chart and has been certified triple platinum for sales of three million copies in the U.S. alone. It featured the massive hit single “Last Resort.” On the enduring popularity of “Last Resort,” which recently passed 100 million views on YouTube, Shaddix remarked, “One of my best friends, he tried to kill himself. We lived in a house together. I’m 17 years old, and my best friend tried to kill himself. And it was a traumatic experience. I sing the song from a first-person point of view just to make it . . . this is how I write music. It’s just crazy how many people have used that song as a source of strength.” Papa Roach’s latest album, Who Do You Trust?, arrived in January.
