Papa Roach vs. Disturbed – Classic Cage Match
Congrats to Megadeth, who recently became the first Classic Cage Match Hall of Fame entrant with five straight wins. Now, it’s time for two bands who delivered breakout hits in the year 2000 to do battle in the Classic Cage Match.
In one corner, we’ve got Papa Roach, who broke through in 2000 with their hard-hitting anthem ‘Last Resort.’ Frontman Jacoby Shaddix (then known as Coby Dick) delivered soul-baring vocals and lyrics which connected with audiences on a major scale, while Jerry Horton’s hypnotic guitar line was the hook that ensured its classic status.
In the other corner, we bring you another of 2000’s breakout bands — Disturbed — and their debut single ‘Stupify’ off their monster album ‘The Sickness.’ With its heavy driving guitar from Dan Donegan and the rhythmic lyrical delivery of David Draiman, the song became an instant classic and helped pave the way to their future stardom.
Who will win? That’s up to you. The winning band will advance to face a new opponent. So turn the volume all the way up to 11, listen to these classics once more and then vote for your favorite between Papa Roach’s ‘Last Resort’ and Disturbed’s ‘Stupify.’
(This Classic Cage Match will run until Friday, Jan. 17, at 2PM ET. Fans can vote once per hour! So come back and vote often to make sure your favorite song wins!)
Papa Roach, ‘Last Resort’
