Papa Roach singles chronology

Still Swingin' is a song by the American rock band Papa Roach released as the first single from their album "The Connection" on June 24, 2012. The single was well received by the fans for the return of the rap-style vocals of the band's early work. The track was produced by Tylias, an indie dubstep and hip-hop producer from the underground of the music scene. The embrace of this aggregate had polarized opinions, some calling it new and fresh to the songs and another calling it an aberration of their style and even the band, but mostly it was well received. On August 30, they released a music video while lead singer Jacoby Shaddix recovers from a vocal surgery.

The song appears in Saints Row IV and Saints Row IV: Re-Elected.

Background information

In an interview with Loudwire, they asked Jacoby about their upcoming single "Still Swingin'": "You’ve never been ones to shy away from the struggles of trying to make it in music and life. How important of a statement is that song at this point in your career? - It is the most important statement for the band. I think it just says a lot about P-Roach. It’s about my personal life, my highs and lows and what I’ve gone through and I’m a f—in’ survivor dude. I’m a fighter. I think it’s taking a challenge and I’m always willing to step up to it and I’m not going to go out without a fight. And P-Roach, we’re the band that no matter what we’re f—ing up against, we’re gonna prevail. I think we learned that from our early days as a rock and roll band, when every record company told us, ‘No, no, no, no,’ we’re like, ‘F— you, we’re gonna keep on doing it.’ It got us to where we’re at now and we’ve maintained that hustler spirit, that fighter spirit, that warrior spirit. And I think it’s just a great statement to put out as the first single on this record. It’s got the right energy and the right message." The song is currently being used to promote Detroit Tigers broadcasts on Fox Sports Detroit.

Music video

The video shows the band performing atop a rooftop along with scenes of a zombie narrative that was suggested by Shaddix’s 7-year-old son.
