Papa Roach’s Jacoby Shaddix On “Last Resort” Being Featured In “Yellowjackets” Series: “What A Cool Opportunity”

During a recent interview with Lazer 103.3‘s Andy Hall, Papa Roach’s Jacoby Shaddix commented on the inclusion of “Last Resort” in the season two premiere of “Yellowjackets.” The frontman says it was “a cool opportunity to feature that classic track years later.”

Shaddix had the following to say when asked if he has watched the show:

“No, I have not, but everybody tells me I’ve gotta watch it. They’re, like, ‘Dude, don’t sleep on this show, bro. It’s amazing.’ And what a great placement for us. And what a cool opportunity to feature that classic track years later.

What’s rad about it is our old-school music and new-school music is grabbing this new generation of rock fans. What was happening with the [Red Hot] Chili Peppers back in 2000 is kind of happening with us now, and that blows me away. ‘Cause I’ve been a huge Chili Peppers fan for many years, and when they had that second wave of their story, it blew me away. And I see a lot more years of P-Roach; I don’t see this thing letting up. And having placements like that, in ‘Yellowjackets’, which is an iconic piece of entertainment for the people, and our music is in it? That’s a good sign.”

For those unaware, “Last Resort” was used for a scene in which Jeff was working through frustration related to the current state of his relationship with his wife Shauna. Showrunner Jonathan Lisco told The Daily Beast the following about the song choice:

“We knew immediately it was going to be this song. We needed a way for him to expurgate all that rage. He’s obviously being very cool trying to get over the fact that Shauna had an affair, but we needed a very terse, intense way to show that he is not okay. That song popped into our minds right away because of that really intense, anthem-like quality of it.”
