Papa Roach-War Over Me


*Update: This article was published in 2015. Since then Papa Roach has made another album called Crooked Teeth. It was just released this year and it is just as amazing as F.E.A.R. You can check them out on iTunes.*

Two years ago I was the guest blogger at Jingle Jangle Jungle, a music blog. My post on Papa Roach was published and I want to take the time to share that post to you all again! You can read that article HERE. In celebrating my article, and to honor one of my all-time favorite bands, I have used my favorite quote from my favorite song on their latest Album, F.E.A.R. called War Over Me.


Papa Roach is one of my favorite bands because I really connect to their music. Papa Roach has always reached me in an I-am-mad-as-hell kind of way. When ever I am angry with the world or even with myself and my soul is struggling with things, I open up my music library on my phone, scroll down to the P’s and open up Papa Roach. Their music gives me an outlet that helps me to express my darker emotions either through working out or writing. In fact, many of their songs inspire me to write the stories that I write.

War Over Me is my favorite song because the lyrics are exactly how I feel about myself and my healing. I suffered through a lot in my life and had to fight a mental illness. I fought because I want to be happy and I am determined to live my life my way. In order to do that, however, I had to fight for my soul. They released this song at the exact time I needed to hear it. I was nearing the end of my darkest moments of my illness. My therapy was also ending but I needed another small push in the right direction. This song has inspired me in more ways than I can ever truly express and I am so thankful to the band for writing, what is in my opinion, a masterpiece!

Here is the video for the Papa Roach song, War Over Me. I have used it in other posts but if you’re into this kind of music you will love this song!

I am very proud of my article and I hope all of you enjoy reading it as much as I enjoyed writing it!

Thanks so much for reading!

  1. The power of music! I have not heard of Papa roach but I have my own “go to” music. There are certain songs and bands I listen to whenever I feel down, need inspiration, when I’m weary or when I just feel like being by myself. There’s nothing like a good song to inspire or lift you. But I must admit sometimes I listen to a sad song just so I’ll have a good cry! #momsterlink

    1. That’s awesome! I will have to read your post tomorrow! You may have heard them they’d been around since the late 90’s:)

  3. I have a confession, the only Papa Roach song I can name off the top of my head is Last Resort. Why I have not listened to more I dont know.
    I can however relate to listening to music and their lyrics to express how your feeling, a lot of my favourite bands allow me to do that.
    Thanks for sharing, Tracey xx #abitofeverything

  5. It’s amazing how powerful and emotive a song or a piece of music can be. I have a few favourites like this that just immediately take me to a different time in my life. Thanks for sharing. Dawn. #abitofeverything

    1. Yes music has always gotten me through some really tough times in my life and certain songs really hit home for me so I will listen to them a lot. Music is my first love and one of my passions. Thanks so much for stopping by! 😊

    1. Yes that’s how I have felt too healing from past trauma and getting through PTSD. And yes, it feels great to be winning! Thanks so much for stopping by!😊

    1. I love that you said dark and twisty! That’s a great way to put it how they’re lyrics hit a part of me that’s sometimes hard to describe. Thanks for stopping by!😉

  6. I wasn’t a big fan of “Last Resort” when it first came out, and just expected them to be another one hit wonder in the 90s rap/rock game. Never would have guessed all these years later they would still be putting out music. I really liked the ‘Scars” album from a few years ago
