Let me be the first to tell you…I am NOT one of those snobs who dismisses anything Fred Durst is involved in. Let’s be real, at one point, Limp Bizkit was the biggest band in the world.
While the red baseball cap and the frat boy with cargo shorts and ankle socks kind of fans have made liking LB kind of like saying you are cool with big tobacco companies, normally, I still back the band solely on the strength of their debut, Three Dollar Bill Y’All. Sadly, I think I have to resign my support. The talent of musicians like Wes Borland, John Otto, Sam Rivers, and DJ Lethal were always selling points, but at some point, they have to realize that Mr. Durst is just fucking ruining their reps with his inability to realize that he is the weak link in the band. Fred Durst is the abusive boyfriend that manages to convince the loyal girlfriend to come home, knowing damn well he is just going to give her the same black eye if not worse. How bad is it, Limp Bizkit has released the single “Why Try” via their own limpbizkit.com website. Shit Bizkit returns.
