In a recent interview with LA Lloyd, Jacoby Shaddix of Papa Roach expressed his optimism about the future of rock music, citing bands like Falling In Reverse and Bad Omens as torchbearers for the genre.

Shaddix exuded excitement for the resurgence of energy reminiscent of the early 2000s within the current rock scene. He praised the emergence of younger bands such as Falling In Reverse, Beartooth, Bring Me the Horizon, and Bad Omens, remarking on their inspiration and enthusiasm:

“And then you’ve got this new artist Falling In Reverse that’s coming up, and there’s a lot of younger [bands] — Beartooth, Bring Me the Horizon, and a lot of very inspired younger bands — Bad Omens — coming up. And I think the future of rock is exciting — rock and punk rock music. It’s just bubbling, man. And so, it’s a good time to be in rock and roll.”

Meanwhile, Bad Omens received accolades when they secured the top spot on a list of the 30 most popular hard rock songs from 2023, as voted by Octane listeners, edging out Falling In Reverse. Reacting to the news, Falling In Reverse’s frontman Ronnie Radke took to X to congratulate Bad Omens, acknowledging the power of their music and the support of their fans.

However, Radke’s sentiments about the current music landscape differ from Shaddix’s optimism. In a series of social media posts, Radke criticized what he perceives as a shift in the hardcore scene, lamenting what he views as a departure from its former authenticity. He also took aim at new metal bands, accusing them of hypocrisy for singing about violence while displaying sensitivity on social media platforms.
