The Cringe: Papa Roach – “Hollywood Whore”

“You’re such a bore, I wanna kick your teeth in…”

Really?

Do I really have to explain why this song, this band and this video blows major chunks? I do? Alright, here goes nothing.

Papa Roach are the band that had that one song back in like 01  or 02 that we all downloaded from Kazaa to put on our compilation next to Disturbed and Drowning Pool. We then fucked the band off and forgot about them for a few years. Then came Scars in 2004, and the douchebags downloaded that one, too. Some of us even noticed their song …To Be Loved featured in the WWE Raw theme. What we didn’t know, however, is that the band became gods over in the U.S., and now churn out this fucking bullshit to five million views. No kidding.

So, Jakoby Shaddix lets out his inner misogynist as he berates women – whilst wearing more make-up than a teenage girl, just for the poetic irony – and talks about kicking their teeth in and such. Truly a class act. For some reason, the bros of Papa Roach are rocking out in a sewer, while some bitch lies on the floor. She doesn’t get up until after the second verse – then, in a truly WTF moment, starts bleeding everywhere and turning into some freaky zombie skeleton. What the fuck is the metaphor Papa Roach were going for here? It’s an ugly, overly-polished video for an ugly, over-polished song, but it didn’t have to be pointless and gross as well. Fuck Papa Roach – truly worthy of The Cringe.
