  • Hey there good folks of GMC!

    What do a red cap, face paint, rap and metal have in common? They are elements found in the nu-metal act, known world wide as Limp Bizkit and this lesson is an homage to them!

    First of all, a few words on them:

    "Limp Bizkit[/b] is an American nu metal band which consists of Fred Durst (vocals), Wes Borland (guitars), Sam Rivers (bass), John Otto (drums) and DJ Lethal (turntables, keyboards and sampling) Their work is marked by Durst's abrasive, angry lyrics and Borland's sonic experimentation and elaborate visual appearance, which includes face and body paint, masks and uniforms, as well as the band's elaborate live shows. The band has been nominated for 3 Grammy Awards and have sold around 40 million records worldwide." - Wikipedia
