Fred Durst:  'I Couldn't Get Pretty Girls to Date Me'
Fred Durst has been talking to Metal Hammer magazine about the heady days of the early 2000s nu metal scene. As Durst notes, Limp Bizkit's underdog status at the time was what led to their "we don't give a f--k" attitude: "We were the black sheep or the white sheep, Not quite hip hop but not quite metal. But we didn't give a f--k, and we always tried to say that fairly blatantly. That was one of the things that came dislikable about us." Durst also notes that the success of the bands second and third albums took them completely by surprise. The singer states that he went from not being able to get pretty girls to date him to finding himself in scenarios that were like something out of a Motley Crue video: "It just happened! We didn't have time to pay attention. We were laughing every day at the fact that it even existed in the first place. I'm a guy who couldn't shake a stick at pretty girls and get them to date me; I went from that to roomfuls of people who'd do anything for me. One time there were, like, 15 girls bent over and there was this other girl putting strawberries in their butts. I was like, 'What the f--k's going on?! This sh-t doesn't happen outside of Motley Crue videos!'" The band is currently touring and continue making their newest album "Stampede of the Disco Elephants." They've also released the new single "Ready to Go" featuring Lil' Wayne earlier this year. As Durst reported this May, the band's making "an anti-radio record." By the way, the rumors about Fred Durst becoming DJ for the Russian radio station were not confirmed by neither radio nor Durst himself.
