Goody Goody Gumdrops: Papa Roach Have Re-Recorded “Last Resort” With “Sick” Guests
Papa Roach’s “Last Resort” strikes me as the very epitome of the phrase “of its time.” If you had told me in 2000 we’d still be talking about this piece of shit song in twenty years, I’d of thought you were nuts. “Sure,” I’d have said. “And Donald Trump will be president.”
So here we are. Not only are Papa Roach still a thing, but they’ve re-recorded “Last Resort” three different “sick” guests from the worlds of rock and hip-hop. Yay.
Coby Dick tells Rocksound:
“We also did a re-record of ‘Last Resort’ which we did with some guests that are going to appear on it. I can’t drop the names yet but we’ve got some top notch sick people on this.
“There’s somebody from the modern rock era that’s speaking to the people for the people right now. There’s somebody from the hip-hop scene that’s old school and there’s somebody from the current hip-hop that’s on right now. We’ve got a little bit of these three personalities that are going to here.
“We’re not sure if it’s all on one track or there’s going to be three different versions. We’re coming to that point now. It’s going to be fun to play with and a cool way to celebrate the track and that’s coming soon.”
“It’s got the right edges to it to it, it’s got the right people, man, so it feels authentic. ‘Last Resort’ is one of those kind of timeless-type tracks, and we wanted to get people that we felt would stand that test of time.”
In related news, Coby Dick may not know what the word “timeless” means.
I have less than no idea what the younger guests could be, but if I had to guess, I’d say the “somebody from the hop-hop scene that’s old school” is either Snow, Sir Mix-a-Lot, or Chris “Daddy Mac” Smith from Kris Kross. I just can’t think of anyone else who’d be willing to get involved with this. Wait, I take that back. There’s also the guys from Wreckx-N-Effect. My bad.
