Papa Roach emerged from Northern California with an intense punk/rap metal influenced style before transitioning to the heavy rock sound they are known for today. The hit, 'Last Resort', led the band to stardom and eventually, they branched out to collaborate with popular rap acts, E-40, Ludacris and Xzibit on Eminem's Anger Management Tour. Their last album, 'Time For Annihilation', was released August 2010, including live versions of their hits and new tracks.
