"You wanted the worst... you got the worst. The one... the only... Limp Bizkit."
— "Intro"

Significant Other is the second and breakthrough album by the Nu Metal band Limp Bizkit. The band showed a lyrical change from their debut, downplaying the themes of angst and heartbreak and playing up more of a lighter, party-oriented atmosphere, combined with music that incorporated more influences from Funk Metal and Hip-Hop. Not only did the band solidify the sound that would be most associated with the band, it also introduced the production style that would carry over to their next album, with ambient interludes by DJ Lethal, extended hidden skits and Bookend intro/outro tracks designed exclusively to Mind Screw the listeners. Not to mention the Guest Stars.

During the band's live performance at Woodstock 1999, violence erupted during the song "Break Stuff". Despite this, Significant Other received high commercial sales, and critical reception was also favorable, with many responding well to its unique sound and the band's performance, which was considered to be an improvement over the band's debut. The album has sold at least 16 million copies worldwide.
