Shared on Friday by Papa Roach, “Stand Up” is a song with a specific — and powerful — message.

“‘Stand Up’ is inspired by the social unrest of marginalized people throughout the world. It’s about feeling of wanting to give up when you’re backed against the wall. For the ones that have been oppressed for so long that a sense of hopelessness is all they have,” explained front man Jacoby Shaddix. “Stand Up is meant to inspire that whisper, that small voice inside that you are worth standing for. Step into empowerment and shake the world with your voice.”

Over the years, the Northern California rockers have maintained a consistency that’s helped them outlive many of their peers from the early 2000s-era “nu-metal” scene. And as with “Stand Up,” some other recent singles from the band have emphasized that consistency, as well as a knack for reinvention that’s kept things fresh and invigorated.

Here’s the aggressive “Kill the Noise”:
