Trivia: Limp Bizkit
  • The city of Austin, Texas put up a public poll to rename its sanitation services. While some names like Lemon Party and Hufflepuff were submitted, the winner by a landslide with almost 30,000 votes? Fred Durst Society of the Humanities and Arts. And just to show how much people liked this, the second place winner only had 2,069 votes.
  • Creator Backlash: Greatest Hitz. Borland in particular called this release a piece of crap and a waste of money.
    • He also disparaged Results May Vary as "Fred's solo album" after leaving the band a second time.
    • Wes Borland has stated in interviews that he hates both "Nookie" and "Rollin'", two of the band's Signature Songs.
  • Development Hell: The Unquestionable Truth Vol. 2.
  • Hey, It's That Voice!:
    • Plenty of guests in Significant Other:
      • Jonathan Davis and Scott Weiland do guest vocals in "Nobody Like You". In turn, Durst also raps on Korn's "All In The Family". Weiland would also do guest vocals in "Hold On", from Chocolate Starfish....
      • Method Man and DJ Premier in "N 2 Gether Now". Method Man reprised in "Rollin' (Urban Assault Vehicle)", the remix of "Rollin' (Air Raid Vehicle)", both from Chocolate Starfish...
      • Aaron Lewis does guest vocals in "No Sex".
      • Les Claypool singing and joking in the outro.
    • As well as in Chocolate Starfish...:
      • Xzibit in "Getcha Groove On"
      • Aside of Method Man, DMX and Redman were featured in "Rollin' (Urban Assault Vehicle)".
      • Ben Stiller is featured in the outro track.
    • "Red Light - Green Light", from Results May Vary, features Snoop Dogg.
  • Money, Dear Boy: At the end of Christina Aguilera's performance at the 2000 VMAs, Durst entered onstage and performed part of his band's song "Livin' It Up" with Aguilera. After eliciting charged reactions from his fans, Durst stated: "I already told you guys before, I did it all for the nookie, man." Aguilera denied Durst's claim and said "He got no nookie."
  • One of Us: Fred is, among other things, a fan of League of Legends, Starcraft II, Neon Genesis Evangelion, The Walking Dead, Homeland and an avid Twitch fan (mentioning Northernlion as a favorite.) He's also planning on streaming work on the next Limp Bizkit album through Twitch.
  • Throw It In: Three Dollar Bill, Yall$ contains a few of these, due to Ross Robinson's raw production style, including the ending of the album, a 16-minute jam.
  • What Could Have Been:
    • For Significant Other:
      • The demo for "Don't Go Off Wandering" has guest vocals from Serj Tankian. This was dropped when Durst went into a feud with the band Taproot, who shared the same management team with System of a Down. This caused Durst to drop the song, and the band to be left from the 1999 edition of the Family Values Tour.
      • "9 Teen 90 Nine" was going to be a cover of "1999". Prince himself refused to allow the band to record the song for their album.
      • A collaboration with Eminem, "Turn Me Loose", was also recorded for this album, but it was left off the final tracklist.
    • The band was working on a cover of the Frankie Goes To Hollywood song "Relax" for the movie Zoolander. After Wes Borland left the band, the song was instead covered by Powerman 5000 and Danny Boy.
    • Results May Vary began its life as a Concept Album called The Search for Teddy Swoes, and was originally going to feature artwork and design by Tim Burton.
      • 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 "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".
