Papa Roach have just shared a new (what they’re called ‘Reloaded’) version of ‘Last Resort’, featuring Jeris Johnson (known for his TikTok fame).
The reworked version if the latest in a series of songs taken from their 2000 breakthrough album, ‘Infest’, as part of its 20th anniversary celebrations.
Speaking of the track, Papa Roach vocalist Jacoby Shaddix had this to say.
“It was amazing to hear that Jeris connected with the track the same way people all over the world have. That conversation of ‘Last Resort’ and its impact on all types of people hasn’t stopped for 20 years, and we were stoked to ‘Reload’ it for a new generation to keep that conversation going.”
Johnson also had this to add.
“The original ‘Last Resort’ is one of the most impactful and loved songs from an entire generation of music (and my childhood). There is an energy to that song that has just made it a living breathing art form at this point. After I remixed it and threw it up on TikTok the last thing I expected was that I’d end up in the studio with Papa Roach a couple weeks later. The reaction and reception was so overwhelming that me (a random kid on TikTok) got the attention of a legacy band and the invitation to team up and remake ‘Last Resort’ for an entirely new generation.”
