Last Resort (3:20)

Cover of Infest

From Infest and 36 other releases

“Last Resort” is the debut single from Californian rock band Papa Roach’s second album, Infest. It is the theme song to both the series True Life and Made on MTV. and The song was very popular and a huge success and shot the band into the mainstream. The song charted on many charts around the world and reached number 1 on the U.S. Modern Rock Tracks, number 57 on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100, and number 3 on the UK Singles Chart, and still receives high radio play to this day.

Music video and composition

In the music video, the band performs on a dance floor surrounded by fans. Throughout the video, the camera zooms in on a few of the fans near the stage and shows them in depression. This was primarily meant to show the secret lives that people had, and how people might not look depressed but still are. There are many posters for radio station 98 Rock. This is the rock station out of Sacramento, California that the band credits for jump starting their career. Inside the Infest album booklet are thanks to DJs of the radio station. On the MuchMusic version, the word “fuck” is completely removed with no replacement. On the MTV and Vevo version, the words “cut”, “bleeding”, “die”, “life” (from the line “If I took my life tonight?”), and “suicide” were also muted. After original airings of the video on television, some networks went so far as to additionally censor words such as “suffocation” and, bizarrely, the title of the song itself.
