Why does Limp Bizkit garner all the hate that they do? I'm just curious, because I liked them back when I was angsty, but I grew out of it. I recently listened to their stuff again, and sure, Durst is a whiny 40-yr-old, but they play the hell out of their instruments. If you don't like Durst, hate on him, not the band he's a frontman for. Take Wes Borland, for example. Excellent guitarist. The Bizkit albums without him are just generic and boring, but when he's with them, they put out very good music. The lyrics are usually pretty boring and poorly executed, but honestly, I don't see anything else wrong with them. If they dropped Durst, they'd be great.

Fred Durst may be a dick, but he's a great frontman. They put on a killer show.
You're using UG classic, congratulations.
You should be using UG classic.

I think you answered your own question there.
The matter of the fact is, Limp Bizkit is his band. Fred Durst and Limp Bizkit are synonymous.

I dunno TS, I still listen to some of their songs like Rearranged.

If people don't like him or the band, then they don't. I don't care either way.

Their mellow songs generally have decent lyrics, and there's the occasional gem like Rearranged or Sour.

They also did a song with Scott Weiland that's quite nice as well. I can't remember it's name though.

I've always thought that the bridge to Nookie was actually pretty cool. I've always thought that if they could take that one part of the song and write another song around it, one that wasn't rhyming nookie and cookie (Really, WTF?), then it wouldn't be so bad.

There is such a thing as taking your band and music too seriously just like there is such a thing as not taking your band and music seriously enough. I think Limp Bizkit has always swung between the two extremes and never really found the middle ground.

I think almost everyone here grew up with Limp Bizkit.
As someone said, they had gems like Rearranged and My Way. I wish they did more songs like that instead of the whole "EVERYTHING IS FUCKED EVERYBODY SUCKS" route.
Nu Metal was a trend. Music like that and scene shit now is just a trend. Like fashion trends, they go out of style. That's why a lot of Limp Bizkit material kind of got really stale as time went on, but some of their songs not only bring back such a nostalgic rush for me but they still sound fairly good.
I don't like the ballad-y kind of offshoot nu metal or post grunge had like Staind or Puddle of Mudd's slower stuff, but Limp Bizkit did it so well because of the soundscapes Borland and DJ Lethal made.

Its just one of those days
When you don't wanna wake up
Everything is ****ed
Everybody sux
You don't really know why
But you want justify
Rippin' someone's head off
No human contact
And if you interact
Your life is on contract
Your best bet is to stay away mother****er
It's just one of those days!!

Its all about the he says she says bullshit
I think you better quit
Lettin' shit slip
Or you'll be leavin with a fat lip
Its all about the he says she says bullshit
I think you better quit talkin that shit
(Punk, so come and get it)
Its just one of those days
Feelin' like a freight train
First one to complain
Leaves with a blood stain
Damn right I'm a maniac
You better watch your back
Cuz I'm ****in' up your program
And if your stuck up
You just lucked up
Next in line to get ****ed up
Your best bet is to stay away mother****er
Its just one of those days!!

Its all about the he says she says bullshit
I think you better quit
Lettin' shit slip
Or you'll be leavin with a fat lip
Its all about the he says she says bullshit
I think you better quit talkin that shit

I feel like shit
My suggestion is to keep your distance cuz right now im dangerous
We've all felt like shit
And been treated like shit
All those mother****ers that want to step up
I hope you know I pack a chain saw
I'll skin your ass raw
And if my day keeps goin' this way I just might break somethin' tonight...
I hope you know I pack a chain saw
I'll skin your ass raw
And if my day keeps goin' this way I just might break somethin' tonight...
I hope you know I pack a chain saw
I'll skin your ass raw
And if my day keeps goin' this way I just might break your ****in' face tonight!!
Give me somethin' to break
Give me somethin' to break
Just give me somethin' to break
How bout your ****in' face
I hope you know I pack a chain saw, what!!...
A chain saw, what!!...
A mother****ing chain saw, what!!...
So come and get it

Those describe you pretty well, courtesy of Limp Bizkit. Nowhere in my OP did I say Limp Bizkit has powerful lyrics.

Yeah, it's Hold On from Chocolate Starfish.

I remember listening to that with no idea who STP were and thinking "damn, that can't be Fred Durst".

Right back at you because you asked why the hate, and I explained why I hate. Nothing more.

I don't hate them, but I don't like them either. I think their kind of music is poor, I just don't consider that as music :/. They are famous while there are so many better and amazing talents out there, and they just wont get famous because they don't look like the media standart, or just because they're muslims, asians, etc... ( ridiculous but true)

You people have to learn something: music is art, not fashion, not attitude, not a way to make money! This is just what I think, if you want you can keep listening to that crap anyway...

Do they?? That's why they're not getting new fans the way the used to get. They're starting to getting out of the "media standart" wich means that they're not the "thing" anymore.

Aint ashamed to say that I loved Limp Bizkit..

Practically grew up with their music along with LP, Papa Roach, System of a Down, Deftones and that kinda shit!!

Was the music of the time I guess but all still had top quality songs, some of which I still listen to! My Way is prob in my all time top 5 songs ever, brings back memories..

What I mean is that if the music they make were really good they would'nt stop getting new fans, and that they just got famous because that kind of style was "cool thing" back in the 90s. Doesn't mean they make good music, people just liked the way they act, the way they dressed...
