Limp Bizkit has got headline spots at Welcome to Rockville in Jacksonville, FL Saturday April 27 and Carolina Rebellion Saturday May 4. They remain one of the best live acts heavy metal and hard rock has ever seen hands-down. So, if you haven't seen them, hit one of these festivals.
In honor of the fests, ARTISTdirect.com editor in chief Rick Florino put together a list of 10 songs that would be phenomenal to hear in Limp Bizkit's set. Check them out below!
This will tide us over until their Cash Money Records/Republic Records album, Stampede of the Disco Elephants drops later this year…

10 songs We Hope Limp Bizkit Plays at Welcome to Rockville and Carolina Rebellion
10. "Bring It Back"
This was Gold Cobra's most vicious, visceral, and venomous cut. Wes Borland's ratchet-y riff swings like axe, while Fed Durst talks about how they "still rain the blood in the club like Slayer". It'll undoubtedly spark up a mosh pit…
9. "Hot Dog"
Limp Bizkit skewers Nine Inch Nails with otherworldly beats from the funkiest metal rhythm section ever bassist Sam Rivers and drummer John Otto. The strange Middle Eastern twinge adds a fiery flourish as Durst screams his heart out on the chorus. It's a classic from Chocolate Starfish and the Hot Dog Flavored Water.
Now, this is an unearthed gem from The End of Days soundtrack. For your reference, it played when the Devil bands those two blonde girls. It would be sick to hear live and a total surprise as it emphasizing the band's weird and wild instrumental skills and Durst's mic brilliance.
7. "The Truth"
This thrash-y number from The Unquestionable Truth, Pt. 1 would definitely please the diehards.
6. "Break Stuff"
"Break Stuff" remains Limp Bizkit's equivalent of "Walk". That seesawing distortion from Borland remains instantly recognizable, and this would be a bloody, brutal set opener. Significant Other continues to resound powerfully.
It's one of their biggest hits and always a crowd favorite. It brings back memories, but it still resonates like a fiery new joint would.
If the Jacksonville boys are going to drop a cover into Welcome to Rockville or Carolina Rebellion's set lists, this is the one. They forever changed the way the world viewed the George Michael classic by giving it such much-needed balls with a screaming assault and battery and a sense of humor.
3. "My Way"
This is Bizkit's most unique and undeniable ballad. It shimmers with palpable aggression and an immortal hook.
This warbling, heavy rumination mid-Three Dollar Bill Y'All illuminates how innovative these cats were instrumentally from the beginning.
It's one of their most powerful anthems to this day. Every element of the band converges into one heavy and hypnotic call-out to "wake up and smell the concrete", taking down "fakes" everywhere. This track always hits with a knockout punch live.
