Rage Against The Machine Bassist On Limp Bizkit: “I Feel Really Bad That We Inspired Such Bullshit”


Rage Against The Machine bassist Tim Commerford is apologetic for the role his band played in inspiring the nu metal movement that ran through the 90’s & early 2000’s. In particular, Commerford is unhappy that his bands output helped create Limp Bizkit, who frequently cover the band’s track “Killing In The Name” live. Speaking with, Commerford offered:

“I do apologize for Limp Bizkit, I really do. I feel really bad that we inspired such bullshit. They’re gone, though. That’s the beautiful thing. There’s only one left, and that’s Rage, and as far as I’m concerned, we’re the only one that matters.”

Of course Limp Bizkit are not actually ‘gone’, and have been touring steadily in recent years in addition working on their long-delayed new album “Stampede Of The Disco Elephants“. Commerford meanwhile has been spending his time in Future User and his newly-debuted outfit Wakrat.
