Limp Bizkit Have Released What May Very Well Be The Worst Rock Song of 2014


Listen, internet. There is a part of me that will forever love Limp Bizkit, and try as some might there is nothing you or anyone else can do to change that fact. That said, the group that gave us “Nookie” and “Break Stuff” are testing the faith of their supporters today with the release of a new and horrible song titled “Endless Slaughter.”

Opening with what sounds like beasts roaring in the distance, “Endless Slaughter” takes about fifteen seconds to completely disappoint any longtime fan of Fred Durst and Limp Bizkit. The verses play like elongated riff sessions, with Durst wailing lyrics about life, feeling not good enough, and some other topics that I cannot make out through all the whine-like screaming pouring through the mic. As the song hits its halfway point, everything changes and a more late 90s influenced alternative rock effort begins to play. It’s just as bad as the first half, only this time you can understand what is being said. You can stream the song, in full, below:

“Endless Slaughter” was released yesterday afternoon and is currently available as a free download on Limp Bizkit’s official website. The song was intended to help promote the group’s recently announced US tour, but reactions from press and fans alike have been largely negative. What do you think? Comment below and let us know your thoughts.

    There are certainly some truly awful moments but for some ridiculous reason, I don’t hate all of it. Some parts definitely aren’t the worse things I’ve heard this year in rock. Some of it has a cool older 311 feel.

    Nah, I’ve heard much worse this year than this.

    “90’s influenced alt-rock”? Dude, that section is a throwback to classic Black Sabbath-era metal. You don’t even have the musical knowledge to describe this song to me in an accurate way. Under The Gun are hacks, taking potshots at easy targets like Limp Bizkit. This song is ignorable at worst. At best, it’s a refreshing break from form for an old nu-metal band. He gets out of his comfort zone vocally, and experiments with some free-form compostion. Seems all right to me. Save your hyperbolic rhetoric and wait for Limp Bizkit to actually release something truly awful before you jump down their throats. Shit, a ten-years-too-late article bashing them for fucking up The Who would have been a better read than this bullshit article slamming them for a new, original composition. Please, just opt not to post when you have nothing real to say. The internet is already over-saturated with “music bloggers” who actually believe that they are unbiased and do not realize that they lack the intelligence and wherewithal to base their opinions of songs on anything other than the context in which they first heard them. You’re hacks! The lot of you!

    I agree . it’s no classic LB, but it’s not horrible either. I like it.
