    Rate this media item:

    • Known for his role of lead singer of the band, Papa Roach, Jacoby Shaddix has admittedly self-injured. In an MTV article he says of the song, Scars, "Some of our fans hear that song and say, 'I had to give it a few listens, dude. But I love it,' It's a P-Roach anthem. It has heart. It's just undeniable. It stems from a good night in Vegas turned bad. I ended up in the hospital with 11 staples in my head, self-mutilation. It was just a really bad night. It's about trying to help someone who really doesn't want you to help them." In an Examiner.com article he says of the time around Papa Roach's third album, Lovehatetragedy, "I hated myself when I made that record. It was a really f'd up period in my life." The article states he was self-destructive and suicidal.¬†Shaddix also has a history of drug and alcohol abuse. In an August 2012 Rolling Stone article he is said to have struggled with suicidal depression after the near-dissolution of his 15-year marriage while working on the Papa Roach's latest album, The Connection, but is now clean and sober and working things out with his wife.
