The riffsistance begins on Prophets Of Rage’s truly awful debut

This album is not good. In point of fact, it is terrible. If you are looking for trainwreck bad—latter-day Limp Bizkit bad, “Magnets, how do they work” bad—you will find it radiating throughout Prophets Of Rage’s debut record. Assembled last year for the Republican National Convention, the band pairs Rage Against The…

Limp Bizkit’s Fred Durst Remembers ‘Courageous and Humble’ Friend Chester Bennington in Emotional Note

Limp Bizkit’s Fred Durst Remembers ‘Courageous and Humble’ Friend Chester Bennington in Emotional Note
Following the shocking suicide of Linkin Park frontman Chester Bennington last week at the age of 41, Limp Bizkit’s Fred Durst has penned an emotional open letter to his late friend in Variety.

The pair have an extensive shared history, dating back to their status as twin titans of the emerging rap-metal genre in the early 2000s. Just 24 hours after learning of Bennington’s death, Durst shared the following message with the outlet before taking the stage at a Hammond, Indiana concert on Friday.

I’m sitting here with my brother Cory and we were talking about when Linkin Park

7 Reasons Biker Gimmick Was Nearly The Death Of The Undertaker

WWE.com

Between Judgement Day 2000 and Survivor Series 2003, The Undertaker ditched his ‘Deadman’ persona and began wrestling as a permanently disgruntled biker. It was an incredibly bold decision, especially considering the immense popularity his previous gimmick had built up over the years.

Like a middle-aged dad undergoing a mid-life crisis, The Undertaker made some curious choices. He started wearing bandanas and sunglasses, and rode a motorbike to the ring. He embraced horribly ill-fitting entrance music by Kid Rock and Limp Bizkit. He started referring to himself as the “big dog”, and his feuds centred around an over-the-top anger at younger superstars for trespassing on his “yard”.

Nowadays this period is mostly skirted over when considering Taker’s legacy, like Shawn Michaels “losing his smile” or Austin’s refusal to put over Brock Lesnar.

As mentioned, the gimmick change was a very brave idea – but that doesn’t necessarily mean it should be commended.

10 Most Essential Deftones Songs

??

Presumably breaking a world-record for the biggest can of worms that’s ever been opened, Rage Against The Machine’s Tim Commerford apologised for his band’s part in creating Limp Bizkit. But though Commerford took it upon himself to single out Fred Durst and co for their crimes against music, he could really have chosen any number of nu-metallers to say sorry for influencing.

The biggest exception to that rule is Deftones. The Sacramento five-piece were dismissed as “Korn-lite” in their early days, but since then they have shown not only remarkable staying power, but expanded and improved their sound, becoming critically-acclaimed in the process.

The 3rd of October 2015 celebrates the 20th anniversary of their debut album, Adrenaline. While it is rightly considered a classic of both genre and artist, Deftones are by far a better band now than they were 20 years ago, both in the live arena and on record.

Rage Against the Machine Bassist: I Apologize for Inspiring Limp Bizkit

Rage Against the Machine Bassist: I Apologize for Inspiring Limp Bizkit
There's no letting go of grudges in rock 'n' roll, and it appears Rage Against the Machine's bassist has still not settled his beef with Limp Bizkit. Tim Commerford, presumably speaking on behalf of his band, is now taking full responsibility for the existence of the Fred Durst–led rap-metal outfit. He tells Rolling Stone: "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." This of course isn't the first time Commerford has expressed his animosity toward Durst and co. He famously pulled a Kanye-before-Kanye and disrupted Limp Bizkit's speech at the 2000 VMAs, climbing atop a massive part of the stage design while the band accepted the award for Best Rock Video, beating

Xtina, Eminem, Starring in Episode of “Entourage”

By Malina Saval

HollywoodNews.com: Christina Aguilera and Eminem are set to star as themselves in the season finale of “Entourage” (September 12). They were spotted on set the other day (Christina in light pink locks). As a huge fan on the show, I can’t tell you how stoked I am for this music face-off. They two had a huge feud back in 2000 (long before Christina started wearing clothes, when she walked around in mesh and fishnets) when the rapper sang about about singer in his song, “The Real Slim Shady,” contending she performed oral sex on both MTV’s veejey Carson Daly and Limp Bizkit’s Fred Durst. Soon after, Christina got her comeuppance when she recorded a parody rap titled “Will the Real Slim Shady Please Shut Up.” Since then, the two have made peace with one another, now agreeing to co-star in the “Entourage” episode. Isn’t
