Vile Nostalgia: Limp Bizkit

You know you're getting old when you nostalgia for crap you barely even liked (or flat out hated) before only because it reminds of the past. Ladies and Gents, respected bloggers and all you trolls out there, it's with great sorrow that I present this latest installment of Vile Nostalgia...

"So come and get it"
I never got into Limp Bizkit. I tried to though. I really did. I bought their debut album, 3 Dollar Bill Yall$ after being brainwashed by radio/MTV into liking their cover of George Michael's song "Faith." Once I actually listened to the album I realized that "Faith" was the best song on it (and it wasn't even theirs!) and felt totally ripped off. My brief stint on the Limp Bizkit bandwagon may not have lasted long, but Fred Durst and his merry men did just fine without me.

The band's fame exploded in the late 90's/early 00's. They rode the anti-boy band wave of Nu-Metal aggro rock to astonishing heights. Selling millions of albums, touring arenas, pushing insanely popular music videos all over the MTV. Luckily, the band's popularity dropped once Ozzfest brought the Hatebreed style mosh to rural America in the mid 2000's.

Well guess what? Now I'm old and sort of get a kick out of Limp Bizkit's song "Break Stuff." No, I lie. I totally love this song. I have this thing with a co-worker of mine where we play fill in the blanks with some of the song's lyrics.
Here's some examples:
Q: "I'm a like a chainsaw. Chainsaw. I'll___ ___ ___ raw."
A: "skin your ass"

Q: "And if my day keeps going this way I just might ____ _____ _____ _____ tonight."
A: "break your fucking face"

It's so awesome! Enjoy today's little slice of Vile Nostalgia. Brought to you by yet another shitty day of work.


Dr. Dre, Snoop Dogg, Eminem, Jonathan Davis (Korn) and Pauly Shore cameos? HAHA. Kudos to anyone who recognized Stryker from KROQ radio/Loveline fame as well. Part of me misses those baggy pants and frosted/bleached hair cuts of the early millennium. The pathetic side. Apparently Limp Bizkit has a new album out. They're like the crappy gift that keeps on giving....
