Tim Commerford (RATM) has apologised for inspiring Limp Bizkit
Towards the end of Limp Bizkit's set at New York's Best Buy Theater last year, the group launched into Rage Against the Machine's 1992 classic "Killing in the Name," a song they've covered more than 100 times. But Commerford is uncomfortable with any link between the bands – he tells Rolling Stone: “I do apologise for Limp Bizkit. I really do. I feel really bad that we inspired such bullshit.”
Commerford also reminisced about one of his most notable moments in rock: crashing the stage and climbing the backdrop during Limp Bizkit's MTV Video Music Awards speech in 2000. As Durst and company took the stage to accept Best Rock Video for "Break Stuff" — beating out Rage Against the Machine's "Sleep Now in the Fire" — Commerford perched himself 20 feet in the air, swaying the giant backdrop while a team of security and stagehands looked on bemused before climbing after him.
