Papa Roach Crooked TeethWhile nu-metal is widely regarded as a blemish on the musical canon, there’s no getting past that it’s yielded some of the best workout music of the modern age.

Themes of weakness ultimately trumped by perseverance set to furious rhythms, and borrowing the aspirational self-beliefs of hip hop and the pummel of heavy metal, have embedded genre icons like Papa Roach in well-worn gym playlists. On Crooked Teeth, they sweat with the best. Whether working in-house or with guest vocalists Skylar Grey (familiar to rap and nu-metal fans for collabs with Fort Minor and Diddy) and Machine Gun Kelly, Papa Roach’s ninth album is an unstoppable force.

Crooked Teeth is out now via Cooking Vinyl.
