In 2001, on this day in music, Limp Bizkit started a two-week run at No.1 on the UK singles chart with 'Rollin' (Air Raid Vehicle).
Limp Bizkit's 3rd studio album, Chocolate Starfish and the Hot Dog Flavored Water, is debated by fans of the band. Some say the album marks their failure and others say it marks the beginning of a newly discovered sound. It also highlights the importance of Wes Borland in the band, because when this guitarist left them on the album Results May Vary their fans were least interested in lending their ears. However, he was on this album.
Now, take a look at the debate about the song Rollin’: guitarists feel it was a shame to silence the guitar of Borland in order to bring out Fred Durst’s rapping; on the other hand, Durst fans were in for treat when they were able to hear their favourite rapper shout right into their ears. All said and done, in 2001, on this day in music, Limp Bizkit started a two-week run at No.1 on the UK singles chart with 'Rollin' (Air Raid Vehicle).
Better still; in case you had a dream that Limp Bizkit was performing on your dining table, then don’t trash the fantasy completely because they are dropping by to show some love, sometime mid-Feb.
