History of Limp Bizkit

Limp Bizkit is a rock band that energetically combines metal, punk, hip-hop in their music.

The band met together in 1994 in Jacksonville, Florida, when vocalist Fred Durst joined Sam Rivers, Wes Borland, and also cousin Rivers – John Otto. Later, the team joined DJ Lethal. So the history of Limp Bizkit began.

The first album entitled “Three Dollar Bill Y’All” was released in 1998. Thanks to him, Limp Bizkit appeared on the MTV Spring Break’98 fashion show. The second album “Significant Other”, released in 1999, lasted at the top of the top parade for three weeks.

However, their performance at Woodstock ’99 aroused disapproval due to outbursts of riots, as a result of which it was necessary to complete the festival. Disputes, discussions are always good for the music business,...because they allow to keep the popularity of artists. So the condemnation of the musicians was not reflected badly on their new album.

In 2000, “Chocolate Starfish and the Hot Dog Flavored Water” was released. The album broke all sales records, it was distributed over a million copies in the first week after release. Due to the illness of Fred Durst’s back, the band had to stop concerts in Europe, which took place in the summer of 2001.

Since then, some members have been replaced, and the band Limp Bizkit has released several more albums: “New Old Songs”, “The Rare And The Remixes”, “Results May Vary”, “A Tribute To Limp Bizkit”, “The Unquestionable Truth” , “Greatest Hitz”, “Rock Im Park” 2001.
