Limp Bizkit fire DJ Lethal
2012-05-31 by BigBlob | 85 Comments
Limp Bizkit have parted company with their DJ Lethal. It has been rumoured that singer Fred Durst was unhappy with Lethal's alleged substance abuse problem.

Fred made a comment on twitter related to the news saying -

"Sometimes the right decision is painful, but comes from a loving place. My hope is that good people can make the right decisions. Can you?"

DJ Lethal also took to twitter in a number of short outburst -

"I’m really sorry mostly to the fans because one man is a tyrant control freak. #Napoleon !!"

"…Truth is I stood up to fred. Simple. He’s a tyrant slave driver"

Also, another question:

Is it because they're becoming too metal to have a dj?

Lol, Leeson of the day for DJ Lethal: If they didn't choose to make a band with the most retarded frontman ever, with an obvious lack of culture visible in the fact that he hasn't ever read a book , actually you will be a decent act instead of a fucking joke and you will be still in that decent act.

Keep rollin lethal,lol

@andcas yeah but that was so long ago... instead of just making that assumption, ill go with what i've observed over the past 5-6 years... durst isn't fucking johnny craig or austin carlile, he's looked out for the band in a big way, and he's done it very publicly. Even though people who hate limp bizkit instinctively hate fred durst the most, he's got a lot of friends across the industry... love him or hate him, he's a shrewd businessman and everything that's been awesome about LB has come from his theatrics.

Don't get me wrong, I love Lethal to death, but kicking someone out over substance abuse issues and then reading "HE'S A FUCKING TYRANT" seems like the same old song to me...

also it's hard to take what you say about this 100% seriously because of your idiotic criticisms of gold cobra and your irrational hatred for all things durst (which you're entitled to, of course... im only bringing em up so you understand how much thought is going into this reply)

I actually grew up with limp bizkit when they were on the rise and was the biggest fanboy of their material up to chocolate starfish.

they were my very first concert I ever attended all the way back in 2000 and I practically worshiped the ground they walked on.


so you already disliked the material they played at your very first concert but you practically worshipped the ground they walked on ?? (anger management was them touring chocolate starfish... depending on where you were geographically, it coincided with the album's release)

this is exactly what i mean... just say you got bored of them or you grew up or got into "real" music like escape the fate or whatever... don't try and impart some grand line of reasoning about why GC is inferior because its basically an updated version of their most popular shit

less important:

me (which you're entitled to, of course... )

you I'm still entitled to be disappointed and call him out about the lame behavior he’s exhibited in the past.


me ?? chill out, dude.

I called your criticisms idiotic and your hatred irrational because you never defend them when asked to. And you don't have to, really, unless you have a problem with me calling you out on it (on the internet) (in the comments section of a limp bizkit article)

You could just as easily say: this sounds bad to me, and that'd be fine, but it's really easy to see how full of shit you are when you say things like youre a fan of their old stuff, but

fred durst is like what? pushing 40 something? it's not cute anymore.


or

I highly doubt this album will thrust them back into the limelight.


and then call it a "cash grab"

i mean do you even think before you type what you type or do you just have a stash of pre-written copypasteable bullshit

Gee yeah its not like they've ever had any downfall... except being there in the first place.

Why would you even want to stay in the band where your leader is a stupid man-child who's in his 40's and still wears his hats backwards, makes jokes about how incredibly hung he is, and doesn't give a crap even if everybody listens to him only ironically? LB is a joke, and it grew unfunny about ten years ago.

But DJ is a fucking poser too

Actually, and while I think you'll agree my interpretation was understandable, I think it may have been a miscommunication between us:

biggest fanboy of their material up to chocolate starfish.


I read this as 'up to (and not including) chocolate starfish.'

so tell me when you've ever made the effort to see them live.


Anger Management Tour, 2000, same as you :D

(not copypasting it but it's the rest of what you wrote)


Firstly, this seemed a much more gratifying and honest response than ugh i love limp bizkit but fred durst is too old... ITS NOT CUTE! or whatever... I am questioning that which was a big part of my childhood only to the extent that you seem to contradict yourself in recent discussions... obviously I wasn't there (although, I WAS at the same show, so you'll understand me reading 'liked everything up to chocolate starfish' and 'worshiped them at anger management' rang a little disingenuous to me.

less important:

me You could just as easily say: this sounds bad to me, and that'd be fine...

you The new stuff sounds like ass to me so get over it.


me once again, that's cool, I'm just wondering why you feel this way (feel free to respond in the Gold Cobra thread instead of here, unless you're too mad at me... then maybe some other time)
