The band is named after Shaddix' great-grandfather, whose last name was Roatch. He was known as "Papa Roatch."
Their logo is a cockroach. They wanted to avoid the marijuana image implied by the word "Roach."
Shaddix used the stage name "Coby Dick" until 2002, when he decided he wanted to use his real name.
They recorded for independent labels before being signed by Dreamworks in 2000.
MTV provided a lot of exposure for the band. They showed up a lot on Total Request Live.
They started their own record label through Dreamworks called New Noise. The first band on the label was Alien Ant Farm.
They toured with Ozzfest in 2001. They used a spare bus to record tracks for their second album in between tour stops.
Shaddix played clarinet in his high school band.
They were the supporting act for The Red Hot Chili Peppers on their 2002 "By the Way" tour. (thanks, Glenn - Sydney, Australia)
