Nu-metal legends and Rock on the Range originals, Papa Roach, have been one of the events favorite mainstays over the past eleven years. It is very seldom that they are not booked for the event and even when they aren't, their charismatic front man Jacoby Shaddix has been known to appear for various reasons including signings, photo opportunities, to plug his clothing line and even to appear on an unofficial episode of "That Metal Show."
Having just released a "banger" of an album the day before, the band focused on a lot of new stuff that was very well received by the crowd. That is always a bold move, but they've earned that freedom with the ROTR crowd by the performances that they always put on. Adding to their ROTR repertoire, the band welcomed the marching band from local Olentangy Orange High School on to the stage to perform. That is something that those kids and the Columbus metropolitan area won't forget for a long time. For more coverage of Rock on the Range 2017, keep it here on AXS.com.
