* ChartDisplacement: The band's second highest song in Hot 100, behind "Rollin'" (#65), is... "N 2 Gether Now" (#70). And their only #1 in the Alternative Rock charts is... "Re-Arranged" (the much better known "Nookie" and "My Way" hit only #3 - but in turn, both outcharted "Re-Arranged" in the Mainstream Rock charts - while "Rollin'" was #4 and "Take A Look Around", #8).

* CriticProof: The album ''Chocolate Starfish and the Hotdog Flavored Water'', which received mostly negative reviews but was extremely successful, selling over a million copies in just its first week alone. Likewise "Results May Vary" was one of the worst reviewed albums of all time, but still managed to go platinum.

Added DiffLines:

* GenreKiller: They were probably more responsible than anyone else for killing nu metal. At their absolute biggest, they were ''the'' face of nu metal. Even Korn was overshadowed by them, Slipknot, Mudvayne, Disturbed, and Linkin Park were all in their infancy, and Deftones had already ditched the genre. If you look at cultural depictions of nu metal from 1999-2002, Limp Bizkit was the template, and they were probably one of the biggest bands on the planet at that time. When they fell, they fell ''hard'', but it wasn't even ''Results May Vary'' that destroyed them (though it didn't help), it's that people were sick of them. The Chicago date of the 2003 [[Music/{{Metallica}} Summer Sanitarium Tour]] provided a pretty accurate look at what mainstream audiences thought of them by the end, and within nu metal, there was the perception that they had made the genre turn into everything that it shouldn't have been: a moronic, creatively bankrupt cash cow that had gone from being music made by and for the kids who got slammed into lockers and called faggots in high school to music being made by and for the kids doing the shoving, and it led to a very real effort within the genre well before they ever actually fell to make it crash and burn. When they finally did implode, they had become so thoroughly intertwined with nu metal as a consistently viable mainstream genre that they took everything down with them, and the bands that did survive either did so through sheer dumb luck or by having attracted different audiences that didn't give a shit about nu metal as a whole.

*** Then when Mike Smith joined the band, it was going to be a much heavier album, called ''Bipolar''. At one point, the title was changed again, to what Allmusic described as the [[SarcasmMode "charmingly titled"]] ''Panty Sniffer''. However, Mike had a falling out with the band and left, so they scrapped the songs they recorded with Mike and assembled ''Results May Vary'' from various sessions which produced different styles of songs, making for an inconsistent album. Shades of this unfinished album can be heard in some of the tracks that ''did'' end up on the album, like "Eat You Alive" and "Pass The Mic", as well as the two B-sides from the "Eat You Alive" single, "Shot" and "Just Drop Dead".
