Okay, okay, I know what you're thinking. A new Limp Bizkit video? Is this 1999? No, my friends, this is 2013: the year of the nostalgia act.

As irrelevant as Limp Bizkit may seem to those of us who grew up when they were a thing, there's a whole generation of kids growing up now who view them as some kind of genre progenitors; the kind of influential early band that paved the way for all your favorite deathcore and rapcore bands today.

How Limp Bizkit, of all fucking bands, ended up being the modern equivalent of classic rock is anyone's guess, but it was enough to attract Cash Money Records to sign them, so they must be doing something right. That being said, they still suck just as much as they did more than a decade ago, and their new video for their single "Ready to Go" is definitive proof. Here's a play-by-play of all the video's greatest hits.


1. "Go fuck yourself!"

The song immediately opens with the incredible lyric, "go fuck yourself!" Just so you know what you're in for.


2. The Light-Up Bass

3. The Ultimate Fan Pic

"I don't wanna see this on your MySpace page. Please, no gang signs. Nah, throw it up. I'm kiddin'."


4. What the hell happened to this guy's grill, and who is he?

5. Oh, it's Nicolas Cage in Zandalee.

6. Ladies and gentlemen, Fred Durst literally taking a shit.

Or, in other words, making this song.


7. So good, we had to see it twice.

8. A move clearly stolen from Prince.

"I'm so poker face, ladies going gaga!"


10. This is about as sexy as the movie Teeth.

at the risk of sounding a little too cliche - more of the hot chick and less of fred...and the music...wouldve been nice.

just watched.... yep... pretty terrible...lol. While their live shows are still pretty rockin (which may be the only thing that matters), this truly feels like a last dying attempt to stay relevant. This is demonstrated while they grab lil wayne to guest perform.. who is possibly the worst nitch rapper ever (especially by Houston rap standards). There was nothing creative about this, no sort of musical collaberation that is portrayed... LB said, how can I stay relevant when my core fan base is now 30-45? This was their fail of an answer.
