.rod laver was a Christian rapcore group from originating from Los Angeles. Their sound was similar to that of Korn, Limp Bizkit, or Kid Rock, but as the personnel lineup changed the group wavered from a rock-grounded sound to one based in hip hop, then back again.
Their name has no spiritual meaning, but was derived from an incident in which the entire band was wearing Rod Laver branded shoes from Adidas.
