Papa Roach, ‘Last Resort’ – Disturbing Songs People Love
Papa Roach are a radio-friendly band that constantly pump out active rock hits, but their breakthrough single, ‘Last Resort,’ is a disturbing contemplation of suicide.
Don’t let the catchy verses and chorus fool you. Lyrics such as, “Cut my life into pieces / I’ve reached my last resort, suffocation, no breathing / Don’t give a f— if I cut my arms bleeding / Do you even care if I die bleeding? / Would it be wrong, would it be right? / If I took my life tonight,” fill the track with manic hopelessness. Luckily, singer Jacoby Shaddix is mentally in a better place, but we’ll always have ‘Last Resort’ as a postcard from one’s mental hell.
