Best Band To Hit It Big (Then Move Here)

Papa Roach

Papa Roach
The road may be their home most of the year—they’ll be touring the East Coast around the time you read this—but Sacramento is the “official” home of Papa Roach. (Translation: They have houses, wives and kids here.) Fronted by heavily tatted singer Jacoby Shaddix, this four-man band is nothing if not uncategorizable, merging metal with punk, alternative rock and pop. But it’s their dark, smoldering intensity that seems to distinguish Papa Roach the most, propelling them into mainstream orbit since their triple-platinum major-label debut (Infest) in 2000 and keeping them there ever since. (Translation: They’re big.)
