Does anyone remember when Limp Bizkit was winding down in fame and people were basically sick of him? Well, someone went to a concert and nailed Fred Durst perfectly in the nuts with a lemon while he was on stage. Ironic that they likely paid for a ticket putting money in the same pants that contained the junk later hit with a lemon.
I can't find the pic so here's Fred Durst pointing toward his crotch.
And a drawing of a lemon.
To me (and being a guitarist I am a little biased here), Wes made the band. He is really an incredible guitarist...and a very strange and artistic guy. I absolutely loved LB when they first came out in 97-98. I've enjoyed everything after that for the most part, but I definitely started to slip away toward the end. When Wes left the band, I stopped caring.
So in the end, if Wes Borland is not in the band, I will listen to what they have to offer...but I will more than likely not care too much.
A local radio station does a "fresh tracks" thing every week where you get to rate a new single just released. They did one for a new Limp Bizkit song last year, and that terrible sample was fortunately the first and last I heard it. It was probably never played on air.

Barry made a sarcastic comment about the forums being a democracy. To make a point, Bill locked the thread because, this isn't a democracy.
If the mods don't like something they have the authority to shut it down. People who talk sh*t to mods then cry foul when they suffer consequences are retarded.
If a mod doesn't like you, it's well within his ability to ban you.

Limp Bizkit was gimmicky, but fun. In that Break Stuff video, if Dr. Dre, Snoop, and Eminem are in it, they also probably thought it was fun too. I don't think anyone expected this stuff to stick around, all that late 90's early 2000's techno rap rock stuff. But I loved Korn and Limp Bizkit when i was 14. Thought it was the COOLEST thing out there. And actually bought COMPACT DISCS! WOW! The gimmick worked on me and my friends.
And that genre was no more gimmicky than all this post-punk metal-core stuff like Asking Alexandria, Attack Attack, A Skylit Drive, ect. Different times calls for different marketing, and if you have a guitar in your music video, you aren't going to be top 10 any more. So that's why those bands aren't top 10 like Korn and LB were. But they draw in huge crowds on tour consistently.
In 10 years for now, people in their mid 20's are going to be laughing at all this dubstep/brostep stuff too. Gimmicks are fun while they last.
I for one am curious about how this new LB is going to sound. And I'll probably check it out.
Jack Daniels kicked my ass again last night.
I liked Limp Bizkit when I was 13.
