Fresh off their starring role in the Woodstock 99 documentary, Limp Bizkit continued their sudden resurgence Saturday at the 2021 Lollapalooza festival, with Fred Durst’s new look catching many viewers of the fest’s livestream by surprise. Earlier in the week, Durst posted a photo on Instagram of his lengthy silver mane and handlebar mustache, a departure from his backward hat and chin beard of yesteryear. At Lollapalooza, he added a pair of bright red shades to the ensemble. Musically, Limp Bizkit remained Limp Bizkit, delivering a set of turn-of-the-millennium hits like “Nookie” and “Break Stuff” and a heavy helping of their 2000 album Chocolate Starfish and the Hot Dog Flavored Water. Durst also showcased his sense of humor, referencing the Woodstock 99 debacle (“Let me make this clear: This is not Woodstock ‘99. Fuck all that bullshit,” he told the crowd) and even rocking alongside the ASL interpreter: When you randomly turn on the Lollapalooza stream Fred Durst is dancing with the ASL interpreter pic.twitter.com/GlaVfBN3Z7 — Hard of Hearing Hype Man (@datkobrand) August 1, 2021 Limp Bizkit’s tour continues through the summer, including stops at Rocklahoma 2021 and Sacramento’s Aftershock.
Limp Bizkit started trending on Twitter on Saturday (July 31), which meant that the social media platform was soon flooded with “What year is it?” jokes, nu-metal litigations and general confusion. The band didn’t see any of it. They were too busy swaggering through their set at Lollapalooza 2021, acting less like a nostalgia booking and more like a main stage force reawakened after a long hibernation.

Few bands have quite the polarizing reputation that the nu-metal group Limp Bizkit has largely maintained since debuting their sophomore album Significant Other in 1999. In the decade since their last release, 2011's Gold Cobra, frontman Fred Durst has reportedly been one of the biggest obstacles standing in the way of the band's long-rumored sixth album, all while continuing to branch out as a film director and producer. Now, Durst is turning heads for a completely unexpected reason, as he has purged his Instagram account and added just a single replacement post, with a picture that makes him look like if Hulk Hogan worked for H&R Block.

Though only slightly more than halfway through 2021 cutting-edge, alternative rising star K. Flay (real name Kristine Flaherty) has been a very vocal presence on the scene.

The internet can be a cold and unforgiving place. For every platitudinous ‘Be kind’ thrown into the void, there are ten absolute bastards ready to leap into any and every online interaction and attempt to squeeze every last scintilla of joy from the discourse. Not us, you understand, but it happens.
Does Fred Durst’s whiny voice annoy you to no end? Does the fact that this guy, of all people, enjoyed massive superstardom for his “talents” keep you awake at night?. Well then, lucky day! Now you can listen to Durst’s isolated vocal track on “Faith,” the band’s 1997 cover of the George Michael classic and, I’m sure I don’t need to tell you, a massive hit in its own right.
