Jacoby Shaddix of Papa Roach picked his five favorite albums of all time for AXS TV's Stranded series, and he chose a couple of iconic rock bands alongside some titans of hip-hop.
Here's the list:
Kendrick Lamar - Mr. Morale & the Big Steppers. "What I really love about this album is the lyrics. I just feel like I get this super deep look into his life and his thoughts, and he's just like laying it all out there — the good, the bad and the ugly."
The Beatles - Revolver. "It's the only album that's been in that CD player in my truck for the last three years. Everytime I get in that car, I throw 'Taxman' right off the riff. I go to 'Eleanor Rigby' and it just makes me feel good."
Wu-Tang Clan - Enter the Wu-Tang (36 Chambers). "It's just one of those albums that continues to inspire me to this day. It's like I'll go back and I'll listen to it and I'll find something new and different about the album that makes me want to go back into the rehearsal space, wanna go back into the studio and create again."
Rage Against the Machine - Rage Against the Machine. "What I love about this album is it's so raw. It's just four guys in a room playing super, uber, duper inspiring music."
Kings of Leon - Only by the Night. "Another really raw album sonically. It just takes you to this place. I'm really into the musicianship on these albums, and I really like the way that this drummer plays. He's got a really unique sense of rhythm and timing and syncopation. He'll take what will kind of feel like just a basic four-chord progression, and make it feel funky and odd and different."
