Welcome to the resistance, Papa Roach. Or is it Mr. Roach? Anyway, nu-metal is having a moment and, with the resilience of a cockroach, we might just have Papa Roach’s 20-year-old banger “Last Resort” to thank for the years of rage and memes.


Frontman Jacoby Shaddix has been an
outspoken critic of President Donald Trump, which comes to a head on the band’s energetic 2019 release, Who Do You Trust? The band’s latest finds the nu-metal statesman melding rap-rock a la Rage Against the Machine. Honestly, it’s almost as if Papa and company were aiming to score a trailer for a film in the Fast & Furious franchise.


Doors open at 7 p.m. on Friday, Aug. 16, at Michigan Lottery Amphitheater at Freedom Hill; 14900 Metro Pkwy, Sterling Heights; 586-268-9700; 313presents.com. Tickets are $29.50.
