Limp Bizkit Biography
Review The Artist (11)
Limp Bizkit is a band from Jacksonville, Florida. They started out on around late 1994 giving free shows and concerts whenever they could get a gig. Yes i know its hard to believe but the Number 1 band in the nation once was nothing but your tipical Local Band trying to get a record deal. Fred and Sam met up and became good friends when Sam suggested his cousin, John Otto, to play the drums for the band. Later, Wes was brought into the picture along with House of Pains main man, DJ Lethal and Limp Bizkit was started. They got their name when Fred was talking to his friend (and now roadie) when said that "his brain was like a limp biscuit." So Fred liked it and the name of their band after it.
This is an awesome band that already has a large fan base from touring with Family Values, and other tours that tend to attract large crowds.It also helps when you open for bands such as Korn and the Deftones. Limp Bizkit, after all the struggles and shit they had to put up with, has the biggest fan crowd in North America with their first hit "Faith from the album 3 Dollar Bill Ya'll, then they really hit it big with there big hit "Nookie" which was on there sophmore album, Significant Other.
After "Nookie" took the top spot on every chart in Canada and US, it was time for Limp Bizkit to give alittle something back to the fans. That summer, Limp Bizkit started the now famous "Back to Basics Tour". This tour was a free tour, first come first serve basis and was ment to give something back to the fans and to thank them for their support. Soon after that Fred and the gang got ready to release their Junior (3rd) record to the public. Struggling with titles such as "Limpendence Day" and "The Chocolate Starfish and the Hotdog Flavored Water," Limp Bizkit finally decided on a name, "The Chocolate Starfish and the Hotdog Flavored Water." Around November/October they released the album. It was a total hit right away selling thousands within the first week. With hits such as "rollin" and "my generation" Limp Bizkit was back on top of the world.
Wes Borland dropped the group to set off in his own way, and this left the band short a guitarist. After trying Fred, and having a nation wide contest, then hadn't found anyone. John Otto, at a bar, was having fun. He ran into Mike Smith, former S.N.O.T native. They found each other talking, eventually jamming, and eventually touring.
Their fourth album is dropped Septemeber 23rd, and the first single off of it is "Eat You Alive". Results May Vary is the title of the album, and now is housing "Behind Blue Eyes" as it's single.

fred is a snake i almost punched his teeth down his throat one night at jacksonville beach. Being the little pussy he is he said nah man come on man dont be that way he is a short retard who got lucky. Anyone with a hat on backwards and a few tats could have pulled it off. What kind of gangster spent time in the navy and has two very loving parents? I'll tell ya who a fake wanna be counterfit whos name is that of a dorks FRED DURST. I wish i went to school with him i would have beat his ugly ass daily and made him drink from the toliet. The only one with any talent in the whole band is john otto. If i was john i would beat the shit out of fred john deserves much morfe credit than fred retard durst...

No | Reviewer: Rutger | 4/3/08
They're not the best band in the world. People who have listened to chocolate starfish & the hotdog flavoured water know this.
They are the best band in the universe. Different thing.
Every song just applies to what you're going trough.
fred durst sunk this band | Reviewer: Anonymous | 10/13/07
the music of limp bizkit is probably the best of the new metal era aside from slipknot. but fred durst sunk them with his awful lyrics awful rapping and his pathetic white boy gangsta bravado. that said hes a very good singer anyone who heard rearranged should know this. i think it should be said that results may vary felt like a solo act because the music lost its edge. i think with someone besides fred durst limp bizkit would have been amazing.
all over the place | Reviewer: Anonymous | 10/6/07
