In a new interview with Rolling Stone, Rage Against the Machine bassist Tim Commerford went ahead and apologized, to all of us, for the existence of rap-rock band Limp Bizkit.
Wondering where this apology came from? Limp Bizkit is known for performing live covers of Rage Against the Machine’s “Killing in the Name,” and during one such performance last year, Limp Bizkit frontman Fred Durst credited Rage as his main inspiration. So, in the recent Rolling Stone interview, Commerford made clear that the admiration was not mutual.
“I do apologize for Limp Bizkit,” Commerford said. “I really do. I feel really bad that we inspired such bulls–t.”
Apparently unaware that Limp Bizkit still tours, he added, “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.”
