Wes Borland: 'People Either Really Hate, or Really Love Limp Bizkit'
Limp Bizkit guitarist Wes Borland has been speaking with Metal Hammer about the strong reactions that people still have to the band.

As he notes, with Limp Bizkit, there isn't a lot of middle ground:

"I think there is a nostalgia for it, I guess. People abhor it on all kinds of levels, but the reason we've been around and allowed to stay is because our fanbase is incredibly passionate about the band. We're so lucky to have that diehard fanbase. We're a very polarising band - people really hate us or they really love us. There's not a lot of middle 'take it or leave it' ground."

Borland also states that reading bad reviews of bands he respected was something that helped him to deal with any negative press that Limp Bizkit faced:

"There are so many hurtful things that people have said about me and the band that I've ingested over the years. I've had to figure out a way to get it out of my system. It used to really get to me, but somehow it dawned on me one day that I should go and read bad review of my favorite artists. That really helped me. To see people that I really loved and to read their bad reviews, that really helped me."
