Limp Bizkit Albums
Limp Bizkit albums have been nominated for three Grammy Awards and the band has won several other awards, selling an estimated 33 million albums worldwide. The band hails from Jacksonville, Florida, consisting of controversial front man Fred Durst, guitarist Wes Borland, bassist Sam Rivers, drummer John Otto and DJ Lethal.
"Three Dollar Bill Y'all$" debuted through Interscope in July 1997 unremarkably. Thanks to a pay scandal, "Counterfeit" the single became so popular that a performance on MTV's "Spring Break Live" helped put the band on the map with 1.5 million sales.
“Significant Other” was the next Limp Bizkit album in 1999, which found worldwide recognition, debuting at number one on the Billboard 200. With great media reviews, the album sold 834,000 copies its first week out and over sixteen million copies worldwide.
“Chocolate Starfish and the Hot Dog Flavored Water” did quite well despite the crazy title, having been released in 2000. During its first week, this Limp Bizkit album set the record for highest week-one sales, with 400,000 on day one. It became certified Gold, Platinum and six times Multi-Platinum.
“Results May Vary” was released in 2003. The fourth Limp Bizkit album debuted at number three, selling over 320,000 copies and reaching number one on Billboard’s 200. Despite platinum certification almost five years after release, the album garnered poor reviews from critics like "Rolling Stone" and "Yahoo! Launch."
- “Gold Cobra” is scheduled for release in late June 2011 through Interscope. This Limp Bizkit album features guest performances by Mathematics, Gene Simmons, Raekwon, Lil Wayne and Paul Wall. The first single, "Shotgun", reached the top of rock charts and iTunes in multiple countries. The new "Gold Cobra" single was leaked onto Limp Bizkit’s Facebook page.
Limp Bizkit albums continue to flourish, as the band’s popular blend of nu metal, alternative and rap metal attracts a loyal following for its distinctive music.
