2000 TOP 100 HITS – #4
Papa Roach – Last Resort – 111 010 000
In an era marked by the likes Sum 41, blink-182, Disturbed, Creed and Linkin Park, Papa Roach made it big as well thanks to their song Last Resort. Maybe the most unexpected hit inside the Top 10, this song is up to an impressive 111 million streams.
Originally a #57 hit inside the Hot 100, that just shows how hard it was to perform well there for Rock songs. In fact, Last Resort was #1 in Alternative Rock ranking and #4 in Mainstream Rock chart, proving it was actually quite big right from the start. This is also highlighted by the album success as Infest moved over 3 million units in the US. It also found success elsewhere by hitting Platinum in the UK or hitting #5 in Germany.
The band never replicated such a smash and lost year after year their fan base. Last Resort keeps as hot as ever still.
