Rise to fame
In 1997 Limp Bizkit released their first album entitled Three Dollar Bill, Y’all under Flip, which is a subsidiary of Mojo records. Although the album didn’t do that well, Fred Durst was still appointed as senior vice president of A & R at Interscope. Some of the album singles were Sour, which was inspired by Durst’s experience with his girlfriend, a rock rendition of George Michael’s Faith, and the song Counterfeit. They have also added a new member in order to cope up with missing fills, but this time it didn't involve strings, it was DJ Lethal from House of Pain.
In 1999, they released their follow up album entitled Significant Other. The group was really determined to show that they’re not just some Korn wannabes so they put much on their songs and musical approach. And to their surprise, their album reached number 1 in the Billboard Hot List with Nookie as their carrier singles. Radio stations were flooded with requests for Nookie and their other songs and it seems that Limp Bizkit is on the rise.
Later in 2000, they released another album entitled Chocolate Starfish and The Hotdog Flavored Water, which was really a serious title pertaining to a bad word. Sadly in 2001, Wes Borland left the band due to creative differences and was replaced by Mike Smith who eventually was let go because of personal reasons. Borland returned in 2004 and recorded The Unquestionable Truth with the band and again went on hiatus. In 2008, the band formally reunited and released the album Gold Cobra.
