Papa Roach and Jeris Johnson of TikTok fame have teamed up for a new version of “Last Resort,” dubbed “Last Resort (Reloaded)”

Jacoby Shaddix and the guys of Papa Roach have joined forces with TikTok star Jeris Johnson to serve up a new version of the band’s perennial hit song, “Last Resort.” The fresh recording, named “Last Resort (Reloaded),” offers brand new lyrics and verses from Johnson, plus contemporary production elements shaped around the original song’s nu-metal, rap-rock style.

“Last Resort (Reloaded)” is available to download now via digital outlets. Moreover, Papa Roach and Johnson just dropped a new music video for the remix, which is available to view below.

“‘Last Resort (Reloaded)’ is a song surrounded by magic,” Johnson said in a statement. “The original ‘Last Resort’ is one of the most impactful and loved songs from an entire generation of music (and my childhood). There is an energy to that song that has just made it a living breathing art form at this point.”

Papa Roach’s collaboration with Johnson happened organically. Johnson says he was approached by Papa Roach after posting his own, original “Last Resort” remix on TikTok.

“The reaction and reception was so overwhelming that me (a random kid on TikTok) got the attention of a legacy band and the invitation to team up and remake ‘Last Resort’ for an entirely new generation,” Johnson said, adding that the moment was simply “magic.”

Papa Roach commented, “It was amazing to hear that Jeris connected with the track the same way people all over the world have. That conversation of ‘Last Resort’ and its impact on all types of people hasn’t stopped for 20 years, and we were stoked to ‘Reload’ it for a new generation to keep that conversation going.”

In other news, Papa Roach will release their second greatest hits compilation on March 19. The 21-track collection, called “Greatest Hits Vol. 2: The Better Noise Years,” covers the group’s discography from when they signed with the Better Noise Music record label, initially called Eleven Seven, from 2012 to today.
