wes-borland-2Getting awards for your accomplishments in music are very subjective from one artist to another and while some may cherish those reminders of success in the music industry, others take em as nothing else but a piece of furniture taking up space in your garage and that’s what we assume happened with Limp Bizkit’s Wes Borland as he decided to sell all his awards.

Believe it or not, Limp Bizkit has won many awards like gold or platinum record plaques from all over the world and even been nominated for a Grammy but it seems like guitarist Wes Borland doesn’t really care about that and decided to put up all this stuff for auction via eBay. His posts via Instagram reads as follows:

DUDE: no, LB isn’t over, nor does me selling a bunch of stuff that’s taking up space have anything to do with my feelings about the band. I don’t like gold records. I think they look tacky and I don’t need them to remind me of what I’ve done. I don’t need a bunch of old guitars either that don’t get played. This is the equivalent of selling bad haircuts that you had when you were in high school. It’s fucking awesome to give people that want this stuff the chance to have it instead of it going into the Hard Rock in Warsaw or wherever. There’s a bunch up on my eBay store now.

The list of things up for sale includes:

“Chocolate Starfish And The Hot Dog Flavored Water” French gold record plaque

“Significant Other” & “Chocolate Starfish And The Hot Dog Flavored Water” Mexican platinum award plaque

“Significant Other” Austrian gold record plaque

“Significant Other” South American plaque

“$3 Bill Ya’ll$” U.S. platinum award plaque

“Chocolate Starfish And The Hot Dog Flavored Water” unspecifed award plaque

“Take A Look Around” Grammy nominee medal

A portion of the proceeds will go towards cat rescues in Detroit, MI so at least you’d be helping a good cause while owning a piece of history that many are probably wanting to erase so head over to his eBay account and bid your heart out.
