Tag Archives: Limp Bizkit
You’d think that years of playing in Limp Bizkit, arguably the most ‘scrutinized’ band to make it big, would help you develop a thick skin… Especially on the internet… Turns out it may not be the case.
Limp Bizkit‘s on-and-off guitarist Wes Borland had this to say to a guy criticizing his side project’s live performance:
So guys, if you’re gonna be critical of Wes’ music/live shows, just remember not to spell ’cause’ as ‘cuz,’ that really ticks him off.
It’s not so much a slow news day, as it is just another excuse to laugh at Limp Bizkit. I know, I know, it’s not 1999 anymore, so who cares right? But as my girlfriend keeps reminding me, I act like a child, so I may as well pretend it’s a year when I still was one.
The latest news begins with a small riddle.
What’s worse than Limp Bizkit?
Answer: Insane Clown Posse.
What’s worse than Insane Clown Posse?
Answer: Insane Clown Posse with Fred Durst.
Ok, it’s not exactly Limp Bizkit news, but it is funny. Yes, that’s right, Limp Bizkit‘s Fred Durst and Insane Clown Posse have collaborated for a cover of AMG‘s ‘Bitch Better Have My Money’. The cover will appear on upcoming album Covered, Smothered And Chunked.
I hope to God I never hear that.
Uh-oh, everyone’s favorite nu-metal band is disbanding. Well, not completely, but apparently the drummer and DJ are out of the band. I guess no more solos in the band, right?
If you don’t get the joke above, watch this cover of Metallica‘s Sanitarium.
Anyway, here are a couple of tweets from DJ Lethal:
“So far the only news I’ve heard is that fred has plans for a “new” limp bizkit which doesn’t include [drummer]John Otto or I. I’m hoping for the best“

They’ll probably be replaced by a Macbook, so it’s not all bad news. I’m sure it’s more power efficient than all those heavy rigs. EARTH HOUR 2012!!!
Limp Bizkit are a pretty easy and predictable target, which is why we don’t give them too much shit around here. However, once I came across this article, I couldn’t resist.
“Limp Bizkit is working on what [Fred Durst] called ‘the heaviest, most crazy metal record of all time,’ The Unquestionable Truth Part 2, which Durst said will probably be an EP. ‘That will service our core and counter balance these big, fat, ginormous hip-rock songs we’re going to do.’ said Fred.“

The heaviest metal record of all time? Haha, amazing statement. I don’t even know what to say, really, when you’re in Limp Bizkit and you make such a statement, it’s a bit like those crazy people who think they’re Napoleon or something.
So needless to say, I was a bit skeptical they could do a metal record. But then I heard they’re working with Lil’ Wayne. Now I believe.
Here is a clip of Lil’ Wayne doing a guitar solo. I really recommend reading the comments. Make the jump to see an equally amazing solo from Fred Durst himself…
Adema? Papa Roach? Crazy Town? Oh nu metal, you so funny.
I am not kidding, though. Slipknot/Stone Sour guitarist Jim Root recently moved to Florida, where he met up with Sam Rivers, Limp Bizkit‘s bass player, and apparently they’re starting a new project. If they get Lil Wayne to be on the vocals, I’m betting 2012 will be nu metal revival year.
My wishes will stay only wishes, because the project they’re working on is electronic music or whatever:
“I live down in Florida now, and you know Sam from Limp Bizkit lives down there. I ran into him the other day. He came over to my house. He’s got a studio in his house and he’s been writing a lot of like weird kind of electronica kind of music that’s you know kinda aerial and spacey and all that stuff, it was really cool.
It had kind of a weird kind of Portishead vibe to it and I love that band, so I think I might… I mean why not. I don’t have enough projects going on, why not add another one.”
That’s too bad, I was just about to look for my baggy pants… Oh well. We’ll keep you updated with the news on this project once we get more news and if we don’t have anything better to do.
Just a couple of weeks ago, the UK’s Kerrang magazine counted down their top 10 heaviest albums of all time. The thing is with Kerrang’s list, though, was I just couldn’t really agree with it. I mean they had The Beatles in the top 10! It was obvious the list was a bit of a joke, so I decided I would put together my own top 10. A top 10 that was just a bit more credible, serious, and would appeal more to so called “real” metalheads.
So to the elite, for real fans of Metal, this top 10 is for you. I hope ya’ll enjoy it, yo.
Fresh of the recently debuted Korn‘s dubstep track, I got an amazing (and very original) idea for a Top 10: let’s take a look at some of the most drastic transformations in hard rock and metal.
List is mostly based on music, though we all know metal goes hand in hand with fashion, so we’ll feature some of that as well. Read on to find ten examples of some of the most horrific, embarrassing or simply plain stupid transformations, in what is could be the first out of two articles.
As a change from the comedy project he’s currently involved in, Limp Bizkit, frontman Fred Durst has signed a deal with CBS to star in a new sitcom.
The half-an-hour show, currently titled as ‘Douchebag’ (perhaps autobiographical?), will star Fred as a “rock legend” (oh no, wait, my mistake, not autobiographical after all) trying to juggle his family and his famous-person lifestyle. The program will be written by Matthew Carlson (‘Mr. Sunshine’), who will executive-produce with CBS TV studios-based producers Eric and Kim Tannenbaum. In addition, Fred’s manager/producer John Schneider will serve as a non-writing producer.

I don’t really believe in God, but it’s okay if you do (even though you’re wrong and gullible!). But if there is a God (hypothetically speaking, Dave), he clearly hates Australia, how else would you explain the terrible tragedy that is about to happen to them in 2012?
“Soundwave Festival 2012″ is taking place around late February, and here are some of the bands confirmed: System of a Down, Slipknot, Limp Bizkit, Marilyn Manson, Lostprophets, and Hole (lol wtf?). I know, right?
God also hates Aussie metalheads, because Machine Head, Mastodon and other decent bands are playing, so metalheads will have to swallow their pride and buy a ticket with Limp Bizkit‘s name on it, just to see those bands. Terrible.
Tickets go on sale October 20 at 9 AM, so you know when NOT to buy them. The official site is here: do not click this.
It’s really sick to see what’s happening to Australia, an otherwise cool and peaceful country. Sorry, guys.
I know, a festival that also has Papa Roach, P.O.D, Puddle of Mudd, and… wait for it… Asking Alexandria! Holy shit, it’s like the 90′s and their metalcore bastard child decided to indulge in an orgy. I wouldn’t be surprised if they were there as well… If you got the Orgy joke, you get 5 points taken from your metal achievements scale.
I have no idea who came up with this brilliant
joke fest, but I’m disappointed that they didn’t gas the place or something. I mean come on. Noisecreep has a review that sounds like it was written by a 13 year old girl who had a huge crush on Fred Durst back when she was young and stupid enough to be listening to nu metal, and you can read it here.
To close this pathetic article, I have a hypothetical: If I have a penis, but no one has seen it, does it exist? Having a sort of crisis here, would appreciate a word of comfort. I mean, my life’s already come down to writing about Staind on weekly basis, which is just one step above being in Staind.
