Slayer’s Kerry King Says Limp Bizkit’s 90’s Reign Made Him Want To Stop Playing

As part of an oral history on thrash metal available over at udiscovermusic.com, Slayer guitarist Kerry King revealed that there was a time during the late 90’s where the popularity of Limp Bizkit & nü metal made him want to stop playing music. He said of that:

“I was really jaded for a while back in the late 90s. I couldn’t understand why Limp Bizkit was big. It affected me–I didn’t want to play music. I thought, if this is the way that music’s going, then fuck this, I hate it. That’s why Jeff Hanneman wrote so much of our 1998 album ‘Diabolus In Musica‘, which is too funky for me.”

It’s certainly not the first time King has shared his views on music during the late 90’s, but it is interesting to see him single out a band in particular. Previous comments have seen him refer to the ‘frat boy’ bands of that era as being the most infuriating.
