  • Some weird crap

    7.0
    I like Fred Durst because he appaulingly inappropriate, but he's funny at the same time. You can't possibly listen to his voice or lyrics without laughing- his lyrics are like that of a 10-year-old kids! I like Limp Bizkit but have you ever heard how stupid he sounded in My Way? Never Again, Durst. Never Again.
  • Gross!!!!!!!!!!! One of the worst "musicians" ever!!!!

    1.0
    Fred Durst, his music and all of his personality are nothing but awful, this pseudo-musician represents everything that is rotten in the world of the music.

    I just can't stand limp bizkit's music, the less intelligent lyrics, the worst musical arrangements. Nothing but a very very bad marketing product that pretends to show the kids how to be rebels.

    Leading to a non-sense violence, Fred Durst's band is a thing (because it doesn't deserve to be called music band) that makes fun of innocent youngsters telling them how to be bad, when the reality is that they just want money for saying things that are supposed to be forbidden by the society. They try to make us believe they are the opposite side of pop-stars, when the both of them are just a product of the same marketing leaders in their attempt to own all of the market.

    The world would be a better place without "artists" like Fred Durst.

    My real score for him is a zero, but this thing doesn't let me put that score, so I'm scoring the lower I am allowed.moreless
