Limp Bizkit-Ready To Go ft. Lil' Wayne

limp bizkit
Whilst I can’t find it in the OTU archives, I’m quite sure Limp Bizkit had a bit of a false start last year when releasing their first song under the Cash Money label. There’s every chance I imagined that though.

In any case, this is being heralded as their proper debut single under the label, the first release from Stampede of the Disco Elephants. That album, the follow-up to 2011′s Gold Cobra, is due this year, and whilst they’re certainly not the force they were 10 years ago it’s not bad at all. The guitars are punchy, the percussion powerful and progressive, whilst Fred’s angsty delivery is as recognisable as ever, and with the catchy, anthemic hook, it’s pretty much the old formula recreated to good effect. The problem they’ll have is that it’s probably not rock enough for the rock heads, and too rock for the hip-hop heads; a tough middle ground, but for those of diverse tastes, this honestly isn’t bad at all. Energy, intensity and even Wayne sounds good on this crunching backdrop, it’s a high-octane affair that many seem to have hastily dismissed, but I’m all for it.

Limp Bizkit-Walking Away


Second leak (that I’ve come across at least) from Gold Cobra, and I’m honestly feeling this a lot more than the first. That’s not meant to be a slur on Why Try, but if like me its that classic Chocolate Starfish and Hot Dog Flavoured Water sound you missed, this will bring it all back.

The track opens with the kind of sombre, isolated, lengthy melody that helped add an epic feel to some of their classics (e.g. Boiler, Take A Look Around) and combined with a slow build to a bigger, louder track that will definitely get the energy flowing (e.g. Crack Addict). It gets a little screamy towards the end, but it’s not overly excessive and does fit with the flow of the track. Definitely one to check out for the old-school fans, and a song that will be in my rotation for a while.

Limp Bizkit Return With Why Try


To say they tailed off from their early-00′s success would be an understatement, but they’ve not released anything for 5 years and it’s always fun seeing childhood bands come back. Their impact and crossover in their prime is undeniable.

Anyway, this track isn’t too bad in fairness. It’s by no means a scratch on some of their classics, but it’s half-decent in its own right. There’s no doubt that they have a style that is difficult to replicate, and this should definitely satisfy the old-school/part-time fans such as myself. If you need something to psych you up for that exam, this will certainly do the trick. You can preview the track here and/or download it below.

Hate Is The New Love: Eminem vs Everlast vs Limp Bizkit


Inspired by Ajay’s HITNL feature a few weeks back, up this week we have a bit of a cross-over beef between hip-hop fans-favourite Eminem, rapcore-rock band Limp Bizkit and House of Pain/La Coka Nosta spearhead, Everlast.

Although there are two alternative stories to how Eminem and Everlast’s beef started, it all stems from Em ignoring/not recognising Everlast at a concert back in 1999…
