Papa Roach is a hard rock band from Vacaville, California, United States. Formed in 1993, it consists of Jacoby Shaddix (vocals), Jerry Horton (guitar), Tobin Esperance (bass), and Tony Palermo (drums).

They released a live album w/ 5 new tracks August 31, 2010 named "Time for Annihilation...On the Record and On the Road", with the first singles being "Kick In The Teeth" and "No Matter What".
The Still Swinging Songfacts reports that Papa Roach's eighth studio album, The Connection, was recorded at the band's hometown studio, The Red House in Sacramento, California.
