Papa Roach Cover The Prodigy’s ‘Firestarter’ at Sonic Temple
When the Sonic Temple lineup was first announced, Papa Roach were not on the bill. Jacoby Shaddix mentioned this to the stadium crowd, informing them that Papa Roach took the spot of The Prodigy after frontman Keith Flint died on March 4 earlier this year.
Explaining that he received a text from the festival promoters asking if Papa Roach would instead take part in Sonic Temple, Shaddix relayed that it was with excitement and a heavy heart that they accept. He said they wouldn't do it without honoring Flint and the band covered The Prodigy's "Firestarter."

When it was announced that Papa Roach would be replacing The Prodigy at Sonic Temple, Shaddix said in a statement, "We’re honored to step in for our brothers in The Prodigy at Sonic Temple on Saturday night. They are such an influential band for us. We’re gonna celebrate, it's gonna be a great night. We love you guys and we CAN'T WAIT to see you out there."
