    This is from the SF Chronicle. Are the fans over them? Sure looks like it.

    When it comes to heavy metal, Metallica is the gold standard

    Joel Selvin, Chronicle Senior Pop Music Critic Tuesday, August 12, 2003

    Metallica rules. Even headlining a daylong extravaganza with today's top nu-metal groups, bands that undoubtedly started out jamming on old Metallica licks, the program seemed like little more than one long tribute to Metallica.

    "You came to see Metallica, didn't you," shouted Fred Durst of supporting act Limp Bizkit at 3Com Park on Sunday. "Well, so did I."

    Durst and his band kicked around a few of those Metallica licks they probably first learned way back in the mid-'90s, the giant video displays behind them flashing "Metallica Is the S--."

    But even such flagrant patronizing wouldn't win over the partisan crowd that had been pelting Durst with a shower of plastic beer bottles and other debris since he got onstage. Durst and company, modernists who combine such contemporary elements as a turntablist and rap in their brand of heavy metal, beat a hasty retreat and cut their set short at less than an hour to make way for the heroes of the day.

    I sure hope so...
  3. Yeah, took the words right out of my mouth. Or fingers.
  4. I can't believe they're still a band...I mean. They should just give it up. Wes was a cool guy , and ever since he quit...Limp has gotten limper than it has before. Same with Guns N' Roses...they suck. Just stop!

    More importantly, Wes is doing a project with Danny Lohner, Josh Freese, and Maynard James Keenan for the vampire movie Underworld. The soundtrack features a lot of stuff from other people I highly regard.
  6. just how many Limp Bizkit/Fred Durst topics have you started, Woodchuck?

    why the obsession- did you miss out on getting the bass spot with the band?:p:D

    I was kinda thinking the same thing.

    Nope, it's not my brand of vodka. However, I think it's mindboggling that a band that you guys worshipped, are now being pelted with rocks and garbage, and I just wondered why. Do y'all think that they sold out or something?

    Durst is trying to be the new Iggy Pop with all the throwing of things onstage and all that.

    Beer cans and stuff?

    maybe he's looking for a future position as powerful electro magnet :p
  14. he could be using all the stuff thrown onstage as filler to expand the 2 singles to a full album like is usually the case on a Limp Bizkit album :rolleyes:

    The first LB album (3 dollar bill, Y'ALL!) wasn't too bad, even I have to admit. Counterfeit has the best bassline I've ever heard from em. But after that, the quality really fell. So I stopped listening...

    Dream Theater's so much better anyway!:D:bassist:
  17. Worshipped them? Hell I despise them much less worship them. I bought their first CD when I was like 12, because that was the cool thing to do. And they sold out long before they were even a band. I hope someone hits durst with an anvil one day, put an end to all our pains.

    and this is why they're no more... "bought their 1st album when I was 12" - and that was what 5 years ago (I checked your profile). Basically their audience ) has grown up!!!
    Not saying that you were a fan, heck I bought an album too to see what all the fuss was about.

    MAN, I FEEL OLD!!!

    Personally, I think they're total sh!t and alwyas have been. Fred Durst "sings" like child having a tantrum, and I cant abide grown men singing about their mummy and daddy's divorce or their maths homework. It's pathetic.
    Also, the turntable work is nothing short of uninspired crap as well, there's more talented hip hop DJs in my street.

    As The Darkness (I'm no fan, but they are the best piss taking band in the media for ages) said:
    "We hate the arrogance of all these bands who think their petty emotions are intersting"


    Let me ask this: How should you react to a 30 year old man who tries to relate to teenage boys by talking about his mummy and daddy's divorce?
