I don’t really listen to Rage Against The Machine and my ears would close up for good if I ever tried to listen Limp Bizkit (they are dead to me for butchering, slaughtering, disemboweling and shitting on a George Michael song), but I live for some good old-fashioned bitchy hate. Limp Bizkit has covered RATM’s “Killing In The Name” over 100 times and last year, the human embodiment of a dutch oven, Fred Durst, told the audience at one of their shows that RATM is the rap-rock band that “started this shit.” Fred Durst has made it clear that RATM planted the seed that helped create Limp Bizkit. Well, the feeling continues to not be mutual.
In an interview with Rolling Stone, RATM’s bassist Tim Commerford apologized on behalf of the band for being partly responsible for unleashing Limp Bizkit on the world:
I do apologize for Limp Bizkit. I really do. I feel really bad that we inspired such bullshit. They’re gone, though. That’s the beautiful thing. There’s only one left, and that’s Rage, and as far as I’m concerned, we’re the only one that matters.
The bad news for Tim Commerford is that Limp Bizkit is alive and well and still tours. The good news for Tim Commerford is that Fred Durst may move to Russia.
This isn’t the first time that Tim Commerford has let it be known that he hates Limp Bizkit. All the way back in 2000, Tim crashed the stage and climbed some set piece after Limp Bizkit beat out RATM for Best Rock Video at the MTV VMAs. Tim Commerford pulled a Kanye long before Kanye pulled a Kanye. WARNING: Watching this clip will make you want to Google “What happened to Serena Altschul?” You may also experience the urge to recreate Serena Altschul’s glorious “Predator after getting its hair braided on a beach in the Caribbean” hairstyle. You’ve been warned.
Tim got arrested for that stunt, but he tells Rolling Stone that the only thing he regrets is that he didn’t go all the way.
“I wish I would’ve swung on that thing and brought it to the ground and just destroyed it. If I could do it all over again, I would’ve ripped that thing to the ground and shredded it.”
And now that someone has apologized for Limp Bizkit, we just need someone to apologize for the Fred Durst sex tape. Whenever I read something about Fred Durst, I just have to torture myself by watching his (DO NOT CLICK ON THAT) sex tape. The image of him making a gross sex face as he sticks it in his piece’s limp biscuit is once again burned into my brain. And yes, I still fapped to it.
