Limp Bizkit Inadvertently Reminds Us They Were Still Together by Announcing Breakup—Or Did They?

It was only a matter of time before doing it all for the nookie would no longer be enough. Sadly, that time may be now, as Limp Bizkit—who, um, everyone definitely knew was still very much together—today officially announced that they were calling it quits.

Or did they?

Before you doff a cap (preferably a backwards-angled red one) and bemoan the day the music died, you might want to hear out one of Fred Durst's (not so?) former bandmates.

It's not all bad news, music fans: get the latest on 98 Degrees' reunion!

"LB has not called it quits," guitarist Wes Borland tweeted in rebuttal. "That article is insane. Thanks for your concerns, but we're all good over here."

As it happens, "that article" resulted in the immediate trending of Limp Bizkit on Twitter and was the result of an interview Durst gave to something called Metal Injection.

"We don't play back home," he said. "We've boycotted America for many years now. I don't know, I just don't wanna go out like that...We haven't properly toured America since 2006. The reason? We just don't know what's going on in America.

"It's all about the catchy new thing and that's always changing. America is driven by record sales. It's the home of corporations. We're just Limp Bizkit, so we don't know how to do anything but Limp Bizkit."

Or at least, they didn't know, past tense.

"But here's the deal: say in 2000, there were 35 million people who connected to this band," Durst said, delivering the final death blow. "Twelve years later, lots of those people have moved on. We were a moment in time and it's over."

Well, depending on who you believe, anyway. In any case, thanks for the memories, Limp Bizkit. The late '90s just wouldn't have been the same without you.
