Limp Bizkit has been a pretty hot topic since their performance at Lollapalooza – so much so that their song sales doubled last week.
Billboard reports that the group’s song streams increased 27% on August 1 and 2 from the previous week, totaling 1.9 million streams. Their song sales also increased from 500 to 1,000.
Limp Bizkit didn’t just stir the pot with an enthralling performance at the festival, however. Sure, they performed fan favorites like “Break Stuff” and “Nookie,” but frontman Fred Durst sported a whole new look, which he revealed on social media days earlier. The band also released a new song called “Dad Vibes”, which perfectly matches Durst’s updated aesthetic.
So Durst changed his style, went viral, and then doubled his song sales. Genius? We think so.
If you were lucky enough to attend Lollapalooza, you might have grabbed one of the t-shirts the singer threw into the crowd, which were from their 2019 Christmas show at the Roxy in Los Angeles. Apparently these are collectibles, as we found one for around $ 200 on eBay.
Those luckier even than the T-shirt recipients won a Wes Borland guitar piece, which he threw into the crowd. According to a fan on Reddit, a group of people who all grabbed a part of the guitar agreed to break it, so they could each take a piece of it as a souvenir.
If you want to be part of all the excitement of Limp Bizkit, you can see them touring with Spiritbox this year. Check the dates here.
