After Fred Durst’s unrequited love for the failed social media, Twitter, he wants it to resume operations.
With Fred Durst and his merry band of Limp Bizkit mates here to save the day, you don’t need to worry about Twitter’s future under the guidance of soon-to-be former CEO Elon Musk. … In a tweet, the nu-metal frontman offered his services to the billionaire mogul.
Since Musk closed the $44 billion deal on Twitter, it’s been tough. As a result of his leadership, half of the company’s employees have been laid off, a blue verification checkmark is now $8 per month, and some journalists have been banned from using the platform. The CEO recently promised to step down if he found someone foolish enough to take over.
“@elonmusk good morning, sir,” Durst tweeted on Tuesday (December 20th). “Myself and @limpbizkit are available for any help you may need at Twitter. Happy Holidays.”
Taking a look at Twitter, Durst felt things needed to be rearranged. (These jokes write themselves, kids!)
Last year, Limp Bizkit released Still Sucks, their first full-length album in 10 years, along with a new “Dad Vibes” look featuring a gray wig and a horseshoe mustache.
Durst’s bandmate Wes Borland posted on Instagram last week that he was in the studio working on new Bizkit material.
Check out Fred Durst’s tweet and Wes Borland’s Instagram post below, and stay tuned to see if Elon Musk accepts Limp Bizkit’s generous offer.
Limp Bizkit is a band that was formed in Jacksonville, Florida in 1994. The band was founded by Fred Durst, Sam Rivers, John Otto, and Wes Borland. Durst, the band’s lead vocalist, originally formed the band as a cover band, but they eventually began writing and performing their own music.
The band’s early sound was a mix of nu metal, rap metal, and alternative metal, and they gained popularity in the late 1990s and early 2000s with hits such as “Break Stuff,” “Nookie,” and “Rollin’.” Their music often featured aggressive lyrics and heavy guitar riffs, and they were known for their energetic and chaotic live performances.
Limp Bizkit’s debut album, “Three Dollar Bill, Y’all$,” was released in 1997 and was a commercial success, reaching the top 40 on the Billboard 200 chart. The album’s lead single, “Faith,” a cover of George Michael’s hit song, received significant airplay on radio and music television, helping to bring the band to a broader audience.
The band’s follow-up album, “Significant Other,” was released in 1999 and was even more successful, reaching the top 10 on the Billboard 200 chart. The album featured the hit singles “Nookie,” “Re-Arranged,” and “Break Stuff,” and the band gained a large and devoted fan base.
Limp Bizkit’s success continued with the release of their third album, “Chocolate Starfish and the Hot Dog Flavored Water,” in 2000. The album debuted at number one on the Billboard 200 chart and became the best-selling rock album of the year. The album spawned the hit singles “My Generation,” “Take a Look Around,” and “Rollin’.”
In the following years, the band released several more albums, including “Results May Vary” (2003), “The Unquestionable Truth (Part 1)” (2005), and “Gold Cobra” (2011). However, their later releases achieved a different level of success than their earlier work, and the band underwent several lineup changes.
Despite this, Limp Bizkit remains a popular and influential band, and they continue to tour and perform live to this day. They have sold over 40 million albums worldwide and have been nominated for three Grammy Awards.
