Limp Bizkit decide to ruin 2009

Source: announced today that Limp Bizkit‘s original lineup will be reuniting this year. Ugh…here’s some of the story:

The quintet’s plans were outlined in a statement posted to their official website, which said a European tour and a new album — the original lineup’s first since 2000’s Chocolate Starfish and the Hot Dog Flavored Water — are currently in the works.

“We decided we were more disgusted and bored with the state of heavy popular music than we were with each other,” lead singer Fred Durst and guitarist Wes Borland said in a joint statement. “Regardless of where our separate paths have taken us, we recognize there is a powerful and unique energy with this particular group of people we have not found anywhere else. This is why Limp Bizkit is back.”

Borland’s words are a total 180 degree turn from those he made a week ago while discussing his current project, the industrial-rock band Black Light Burns. “I have no plans on working with Limp again,” he told “It’s better for me for sure. I’m having a great time doing Black Light Burns.”

Borland had the right idea last week. But, my guess is that he saw how great the reaction to blink-182‘s reunion was and realized how much f*cking money they were gonna make, so he assumed the reaction to a Limp Bizkit reunion would be just as positive. And I can’t say that he’s completely wrong. There’s a lot of people out there who like horrible music, and Limp Bizkit’s next record will probably break some kind of sales record. Rest assured I’ll be on here bitching when it happens. But, in this economy, I can’t blame Borland for putting his musical integrity on the backburner for a little bit.

Also, “disgusted and bored” by the state of heavy popular music? That’s mostly YOUR fault, guys! This awful nu metal thing started around the same time you guys showed up the first time. Don’t try and act like you weren’t involved.
