But here’s the deal: say in 2000, there were 35 million people who connected to this band. Twelve years later, lots of those people have moved on. We were a moment in time and it’s over.

That’s what Limp Bizkit frontman Fred Durst had to say about the apparent decline in the band’s popularity in recent years. Going on to say that although the band is not splitting up, a lot of their former fans had “moved on.” Their former label Interscope Records had parted ways with the band in December last year due to poor album sales followed on by the May announcement that Limp Bizkit had two upcoming projects set for release with Lil Wayne’s Cash Money label. Speaking on the current status of the band, Durst went on to say:

“We don’t play back home. We’ve boycotted America for many years now. I don’t know, I just don’t wanna go out like that. We did a few radio shows in 2010 for a friend and that was it. We haven’t properly toured America since 2006.The reason? We just don’t know what’s going on in America,” he added. “It’s all about the new catchy thing and that’s always changing. America is driven by record sales. It’s the home of corporations. We’re just Limp Bizkit, so we don’t know how to do anything but Limp Bizkit.”

Were you, or are you still a fan of Limp Bizkit? Are you looking forward to their next chapter with Cash Money Records? Leave your thoughts in the comments below.
