Awesome / Limp Bizkit

  • Limp Bizkit allowed female audience members to attend their concerts for free during an early tour.
  • The band does not think that Digital Piracy Is Evil. In fact, they encourage file sharing, because downloaders pay to see them in concert or buy the albums if they enjoy the music.
  • In the year 2000, when everybody and their dog was suing Napster for contributory copyright infringement, they instead embarked on a summer tour of free shows sponsored by the makers of the eponymous file-sharing software. Fred Durst, the band's frontman, even issued a scathing Take That! to the entire rest of the industry:
    Fred Durst: We could care less about the older generation's need to keep doing business as usual, we care more about what our fans want and our fans want music on the Internet.
  • The underground rap group Azylum Inmates, whose members are Limp Bizkit fans, sent a series of tweets to Fred Durst's Twitter account encouraging Durst to check out their first music video. Durst ended up giving the group props, which increased the group's recognition.
  • Wes Borland successfully persuades a critic to change their rating of Gold Cobra from 1/5 to 2/5, with some very well thought-out conversation between the two of them.
  • YouTube-based British novelty act The Lounge Kittens did a, well, lounge music version of "Rollin'." How much does Fred Durst love their version? He let them introduce Limp Bizkit at Sonisphere 2014.
