Vintage Video: Limp Bizkit Cover Metallica’s “Master of Puppets” With Wes Borland on Vocals in 2001

0

Some of us are unfortunate enough to remember Limp Bizkit’s lousy cover of Metallica’s “Welcome Home (Sanitarium)” from the 2003 MTV Icon event. That was during the too-brief period when Wes Borland was smart enough not to be in Limp Bizkit.

Far fewer of us are unfortunate enough to remember Limp Bizkit’s somehat-better cover of Metallica’s “Master of Puppets,” which they performed — with Borland handling lead vocals — at the Rock im Park festival in Nuremberg, Germany on June 1, 2001. That show was eventually turned into a pro-shot live DVD, which I’d never even heard of until this morning, when the YouTube algorithm was like “Here you seem stupid try this for a laugh.”

Here you seem stupid try this for a laugh:

Borland recently revealed that Limp Bizkit still haven’t finished their new album because it doesn’t live up to Fred Durst’s high standards. No, seriously, that’s something he said with a straight face.
