Another Jacksonville failure

    Jacksonville's own Limp Bizkit dropped by their record label after 14 years.


    It's pretty sad when a shitty band like Limp Bizkit can honestly claim to be one of the most famous exports of a "major" U.S. city.


    OTOH, Skynyrd and The Allman Brothers are good, so ... Yay, Jacksonville?

    Engaging in the Internet in such a way that allows one to find "news" about Limp Bizkit seems like a pretty big failure, too, right?

    Can't you sum that up in a "clever" acronym?

    Shitty or not, Limp Bizkit enjoyed ridiculous success and prominence far outpacing the talents of its members and the quality of its music. It was the Nickelback of its time; Creed before Creed was Creed (a nearby Tallahassee export).

    Say what you will about Jax, but it's got a pretty strong music heritage.
    Pat Boone, Ray Charles, Skynyrd and all manner of Southern rock favorites. Even recent nationally prominent groups such as Yellowcard, Cold, Red Jumpsuit Apparatus and Black Kids.

    Don't you mean African-American Kids?

    Wow. So, Limp Bizkit and Pat Boone, huh?

    And they still built the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in Cleveland?

    I loved Limp Bizkit back in the day.

    90s on 9 is one of the Sirius stations I listen to a fair amount and when one of their songs comes on I rock out my bitchin Town and Country minivan like only someone who pisses suburban excellence like myself can.

    Most people who appreciated decent rock and roll and soul in Jax weren't LB fans.
    Also left out Molly Hatchet and .38 Special.
