Godsmack vs. Papa Roach – 2013 Loudwire Rock Bowl, Round 1
There’s nothing to get you rocking like a pair of rock anthems, and this 2013 Loudwire Rock Bowl matchup has them. It’s Godsmack‘s ‘I Stand Alone’ squaring off against Papa Roach‘s ‘Last Resort’ to see which is the better football anthem.
Godsmack’s Sully Erna spells it out for all comers in ‘I Stand Alone’ when he belts “I’ve told you this once before / You can’t control me / If you try to take me down, you’re gonna pay.” That type of grit and determination is what drives many of the NFL players, and in the end, their ultimate goal to the be the team that “stands alone” at the end of the season.
Meanwhile, Godsmack’s competition in this round is Papa Roach who have some strong statements of their own with ‘Last Resort.’ The pounding drums and guitars only strengthen the mood of the track, which is one of back-against-the-wall desperation. And as we all know, desperation can be a powerful motivator. When Jacoby Shaddix unleashes on this song, is there anyone left unmoved?
