How To Book LIMP BIZKIT For Your Event!
may be available for your next special event!
Led by self-confessed "freak" Fred Durst, the son of a policeman, hard rock/hip-hop fusion band Limp Bizkit were formed in 1994 in Jacksonville, Florida. Completed by guitarist Wes Borland, bass player Sam Rivers and drummer John Otto, the band was further augmented in 1996 by the services of DJ Lethal when his former employers, House Of Pain, ran aground.
The connection was made originally when Limp Bizkit supported House Of Pain on their final tour. On his move from hip-hop to an (admittedly eclectic) rock sound, he commented: "80% of the drums in rap come from old rock records. People who talk shit about me being white and doing hip-hop better check who the f**k they're sampling!" The band made its debut with "Three Dollar Bill, Y'all$" in 1997, a record that went on to notch up sales in excess of 1.5 million, as it was adopted by a new generation of MTV rock fans. The band's striking live shows, complete with break dancers and garish backdrops, also earned them high-profile slots on the Ozzfest, Warped and Family Values tours.
They got their name when Fred Durst was talking to his friend (and now roadie) when he said that "his brain was like a limp biscuit." Fred liked it, so he named their band after it.
Durst continued to court celebrity and self-publicity, making guest appearances on albums by
KoRn and Soulfly during this period. He also became an A&R executive for his record label, Flip, fellow Jacksonville band Cold being his first signing. Limp Bizkit returned in July 1999 with "Significant Other," with production work by DJ Premier and a guest rap from
Method Man affirming the band's hip-hop credentials. The album debuted at number 1 on the US album chart, confirming the band as one of the leading alternative acts in America.
The following year they achieved a big transatlantic hit with "Take A Look Around," the theme song for the Tom Cruise movie "Mission: Impossible 2." They capitalized on their high profile with the release of "Chocolate Starfish And The Hot Dog Flavored Water," which went straight to number 1 on the US charts. The band also spearheaded the "nu-metal" breakthrough in Europe, with "Rollin'" topping the UK singles chart for two weeks in January 2001. Borland, who had earlier
recorded an album with his side-project Big Dumb Face, left the band in October.

- My Way
- Rollin' (Air Raid Vehicle)
