Rage Against The Machine Apologizes For Inspiring 'Bullsh*t' Limp Bizkit
Not a lot of people like Limp Bizkit, and that's mostly because Fred Durst is a douchebag.
The heavily dated 90s rap-rock band responsible for such hits as "Rollin'" and "Nookie" is undoubtedly one of the worst things to happen to music.
But like many other terrible artists, the band was inspired by other fly sh*t around it and somehow made it to the top.
One of those inspirations is legendary rap metal band Rage Against the Machine from Los Angeles, California.
For those of you who ain't know, Limp Bizkit is actually still together and plays shows wherever it can get booked. One of the mainstays at every show is a cover of Rage's "Killing in the Name."
According to VICE, Limp Bizkit frontman Fred Durst was quoted at a 2014 show, while pointing to his heart, as saying,
When I first heard this song, that sh*t hit me right the f*ck here.
Earlier, he called Rage Against the Machine the "rap-rock band that started this sh*t," so you think there would be some type of mutual respect, right? Wrong.
In a recent interview with Rolling Stone, RATM bass player Tim Commerford apologized for inspiring Limp Bizkit.
I do apologize for Limp Bizkit. I really do. I feel really bad that we inspired such bullsh*t.
There's nothing worse than having your idol completely disown you.
It'd probably be wise for Limp Bizkit to drop the cover tribute altogether at this point. Better yet, the band should just quit!
For those of you who don't remember, Tim Commerford was also the one who interrupted Limp Bizkit's acceptance speech at the 2000 MTV Video Music Awards and got kicked out.
Limp didn't get the clue back then still doesn't get it now!
