It's 2013, and hating on Limp Bizkit, their frontman, Fred Durst, or the moshing-in-JNCOs rap-rock universe of which they are a cornerstone, is something like shamelessly combining the easiest elements of stealing candy from a baby, shooting fish in a barrel, and trolling for lulz.
- 10 Worst Florida Bands of All Time
It's a job better left for hipster-norm pseudo-aesthetes like Chuck Klosterman. It's much more our style to take the road less traveled, revisit the Bizkit's legacy with new ears, and figure out where the band successfully produces art, regardless of how we feel about it personally.
But, uh, in the case of Durst, the band's arbitrarily costumed guitarist, Wes Borland, and whoever the fuck else is in Limp Bizkit, we may have met our match.
Limp Bizkit is the worst band from Florida of all time. They didn't earn that distinction by sometimes not sucking. Limp Bizkit always sucks! It is mathematically impossible to find something redeeming about them. We would dare you to try but we don't want to open ourselves up to potential legal action when your brain melts out of your asshole.
Limp Bizkit. 8 p.m., Thursday, April 15, at Revolution Live, 100 SW Third Ave, Ft. Lauderdale. Tickets go on sale Friday, March 15 and will be $32 (no fees) in advance through the Box Office, $35 at the door, and $32 (plus fees) through livenation.com. For more info visit jointherevolution.net or call the box office at 954-449-1025.
