"Last Resort" is the first single from the rock band Papa Roach's second album, Infest.

The song "Last Resort" is about suicide. In an interview with Songfacts, Papa Roach member Tobin Esperance spoke about the song and its lyrics, saying:
"I think the lyrics had a lot to do with it. Because originally the song was about a friend of ours that we grew up with, and he was going through a rough time in his life. And there was that suicide element to it, just like growing up and the struggles of life and questioning whether or not you want to keep going on, and I think a lot of people connected with that. For the kids who had also gone through those kinds of feelings, those kinds of emotions, the lyrics really helped connect with that song."

"Last Resort" is influenced by hip hop music. Both The Fugees and Wu-Tang Clan influenced the song. Although the song doesn't feature piano, the song was composed with piano. Papa Roach member Tobin Esperance said: "I've written songs on piano – actually, 'Last Resort' with that whole little riff/melody thing, that's done on the piano. And then I just transferred it to the guitar."

"Last Resort" achieved mainstream success, peaking at number 1 on the Modern Rock Tracks chart in August 2000, number 56 on the Radio Songs chart in September 2000, and number 57 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart in December 2000.

The popularity of "Last Resort" helped Papa Roach's album Infest get certified 3x platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) in July 2001.

The music video was directed by Marcos Siega.
