LIMP BIZKIT TO RELEASE DVD: MORE PROOF THAT BAD THINGS HAPPEN IN NUREMBERG
Perennial MetalSucks favorites Limp Bizkit have announced the release of a new DVD, reports SMN (why their publicist didn’t send us a release is, like, a total mystery to me, given our support of this amazing band in the past). The DVD, entitled Rock in the Park 2001, will come out March 31, and will contain the groundbreaking rap metal pioneers’ entire live performance from “Germany’s biggest and most prestigious rock event held annually in Nuremberg, the famous Rock In The Park Festival.”
This is great news, as Limp Bizkit were surely one of the finest bands of their generation. Led by ultra-charismatic front man Fred Durst and ground breaking guitarist Wes Borland – possibly the most important and revolutionary axe slinger since Eddie Van Halen, if not Jimi Hendrix himself – Limp Bizkit were known for such politically relevant, introspective, hard-rockin’ hip-hoppin’ tunes as “Nookie,” “Break Stuff,” and a song called “My Generation” that was so damned good it erased all memory of The Who’s tune of the same title.
Upon news of the band’s demise a few years back, Vince and I had to console ourselves in one another’s arms, while the suicide rate of suburban frat boys everywhere rose to such dramatic heights that President Bush actually attempted to get Congress to pass a law ordering the Bizkit to get back “N 2gether Now.” But the impending release of this DVD promises hope; hope that there will finally be peace in the Middle East, that we will find a cure for cancer, that poverty and war will come to an end, and that I will never, ever have to pretend to like no-talent ass clowns like Tool and Lamb of God ever again.
