Papa Roach’s Jacoby Shaddix: “Our First Releases Were Embarrassing”

While he wasn’t explicit as to which releases, Papa Roach frontman Jacob Shaddix isn’t likely to bust out any songs from “Potatoes For Christmas” or “Caca Bonita” any time soon. The frontman of the band was recently interviewed by Korn guitarist Brian “Head” Welch as part of the latter’s HeAd’s KoRner column. The following exchange took place in regards to that:

Me and Fieldy and Munk had these cheesy bands we were in years before forming Korn; were you in cheesy bands?

Papa Roach is my first band.

What?! That ain’t right!

Haha, I’m gonna trip you out though because our first releases were embarrassing, you know if we go back and listen to the first P-Roach recordings, we sound like a cross between Mr. Bungle, Red Hot Chili Peppers and metal, haha. You know, that whole ’90s scene that was funky and freaky — I even wore panty hose on my head.

Haha, I gotta hear that stuff.

Yeah, my embarrassing moments were in Papa Roach.”

      This is one of those bands I can’t BELIEVE is still relevant. I totally thought they would disappear quietly in the night shortly after that second album they put out. Just terrible.

      My first ever experience with Napster was downloading leaked P-Roach tunes from Infest. Whatevs, I’ll always like these guys and even some of the new stuff is good – that intro to Where Did The Angels Go is some of their best stuff even if it isn’t complex, but I can’t stand the Leader of the Broken Hearts kinda stuff.

        I can’t remember the first thing I ever downloaded, but I do know the first CD I ever burned was Staind – Dysfunction. Mudshovel may have been the first song I downloaded on Napster, actually. But yeah, Infest was definitely in there, too.

    • I find it ammusing that Head finds that his work in bands such as LAPD to be cheesier then some of the material he has released with Korn or even as a solo artist for that matter.
