Watch Papa Roach’s Wholesome Quarantine Video For Feel Like Home
California nu-metal titans Papa Roach have released the perfect quarantine music video, sending an uplifting message to fans and making lockdown look like… well, an absolute blast to be honest.
The band – Jacoby Shaddix, Jerry Horton, Tobin Esperance and Tony Palermo – are all filmed at their respective homes alongside various family members and pets, dancing and performing along to the Who Do You Trust? track.
“We’re all home, in quarantine, and decided to try and entertain our families a little bit with one of our favourite songs from the record,” they say. “We hope it brings a little joy and positivity.”

Though Jacoby Shaddix’s kids star in the clip, the frontman recently told Kerrang! that he “doesn’t think it’ll be a problem” if they wanted to follow their dad into the music industry. “My eldest son really loves music, but it’s clear it’s not going to be his path,” he explained. “He wants to be a sports rehab therapist. That’s fucking awesome.”
Jacoby also spoke of how the life of a musician – and the business side of things – played into his personal struggles, revealing, “Musicians make many sacrifices. When I first started touring, I was having the time of my life, but I didn’t have children. Now going on tour and leaving family behind is a struggle. We often have to stand alone in our heads, which can get pretty gnarly. Plus, people in the industry have always used artists, and used our lack of music business knowledge to take advantage of us. When you grow up you get a little smarter, and you realise how much that’s happened to you.”
