Papa Roach are in the final days of their opening slot on the Guns N' Roses tour, and according to frontman Jacoby Shaddix, it's been one hell of a ride.

"Every day our set time changes, depending on when Axl [Rose] wants to show up to the gig," he tells AOL Music. The band, he says, don't mind: "It's like, f*** it. It's an opportunity to play."

They've enjoyed the opportunity to promote their new album, 'The Paramour Sessions,' to the GN'R masses. "You've got some really, really young kids, like 15, all the way up to people in their fifties, so it's a very diverse audience," Shaddix says. "Really, it's just a rock n' roll crowd, and they want to rock. We're the underdogs on this show. We have to get up there and bring the raucous. We turn it out every night."

With four major-label efforts under their belts, the band has been surprising the arena crowds. "We've had [about] seven singles under our belt now, and we're bringing them out throughout the set," Shaddix says. "By the end of the set, we've got them in a hot frenzy."

Papa Roach have also picked up a few tips from Axl and company: "What I've learned is to show up on time," the frontman laughs.

Papa Roach is quite possibly the absolute worst band i have ever heard in my life. I couldn't care less who they tour with it doesn't change the fact that Jacoby likes balls in his face.

These f***ers suck a$$ anyways. They might as well BE GnR with how much of a fag the lead singer is. I want to jack off all over his face so his stupid a$$ makeup smears all over and runs in his eyes. Then I'll jack off on them, too. Papa Roach has been unbearable since their second album, GaySexTragedy or whatever it was. Jacoby needs to come down to Crawford, Texas where I will set up my Slip 'n Slide in my backyard and cover it in my feces so he can slide face first, covered in my sh**, right into a f***ing tree. I hope these gaywads take this as a hint and never tour again. Papa Roach can, now and forever, suck on my ball$.

What do you get when you combine one gay band with another gay band???

One really big gay orgy. Everytime I think of GnR I want to shoot myself in the ear so I never have to listen to them again. And even when I think about Papa Roach, or as I like to call them, Gayfa**otRoach, I want to kill babies. Yes that right, babies. I hope that they think about breaking up for good, so that way, I wont kill anymore babies, ever. Same goes for GnR, please stop being so gay with each other. Your gayness astounds even me. Go f*** each other like you do every night. f*** off. f***
