It's funny, I remember during my Elementry years the only bands that ruled my world was Papa roach, limp bizkit, Korn, Blink 182 ahahhaa all that good stuff. Everything changed though once I got into middle school and I discovered a little band called Slayer in 7th grade during September of 2001(I was first introduced to the band by the song "Disciple". Yes, that was my very first Slayer song)....that's pretty much when i stopped listening to limb biz kit, Korn, and all those other great bands.
This, expect for me it was Metallica; I'll get to them here soon but hearing them just blew Korn, Papa Roach Cold, Limp Bizkit and others out the water. Slayer didn't really come to me until college which sucks because I know I missed some great tours of that. Speaking of Papa Roach......

For those of you who remember these famous lyrics, this album was a huge deal back in 2000; Every depressed teen loved it, adults shit their pants in fear of thinking the song would promote suicide. Again, me being all woe is me and shit, I jumped right on this when I heard Last Resort. Needless to say my love affair with the album lasted about 6 months before I moved on. The rest of the album listening to it now is a bit of a let down with Blood Brothers and Snakes being ok. Papa Roach rode this for a while then just dropped off the map when they had to record a follow up to this. I didn't even realize until doing some research today that they are up to 7 albums. Maybe it is because I'm older and wiser(ish) but I don't see any value in this album. It was good for the times but today it feels weak
Today's score: 4/10
