We really wanted to do something new and continue to grow. We’ve always felt like outsiders, so, we’ve just sat in our own little category and done what we believe in.” – about Papa Roach’s new album, “Getting Away With Murder.
“There are always outside forces trying to tell you what to do. So, we just put up our middle finger to critics and other people, and said, ‘We’re gonna do what we’re gonna do.’ We stand up for ourselves as a band, and our message to our fans is to shut yourself off from anyone who wants to run the show, and run it yourself.” – in response to what critics have to say.
“Maybe one day I’ll buy myself a nice house, but right now it’s not about the, like, bling-bling things . I’m saving my money. ‘Cause when this whole game’s over, dude, I just wanna be kickin’ it.” – on financial planning.
