Rage Against the Machine called it quits in 2000, but they still managed to inspire Fred Durst and the notorious Limp Bizkit. Durst said it was the song “Killing in the Name” that hooked him, and for that reason former Rage Against the Machine bass player Tim Commerford said he feels bad about those unfortunate turn of events.
Said Commerford in an upcoming interview in Rolling Stone Magazine,
“I do apologize for Limp Bizkit, I really do. I feel really bad that we inspired such bullshit. 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.”
This isn’t the first time Commerford has taken shots at Limp Bizkit. On The Dan LeBatard Show earlier this year he said they’re, “one of the dumbest bands in the history of music that nobody gives a shit about anymore.”
When he’s not dissing the LB, Commerford is playing bass and singing in Wakrat, his new three piece band who just released a music video for “Knucklehead,” which you can watch below.
