RAGE AGAINST THE MACHINE Bassist Apologizes For Inspiring LIMP BIZKIT

Blabbermouth.Net: ...RAGE AGAINST THE MACHINE bassist Tim Commerford has said in a new interview with Rolling Stone that he's sorry for inspiring rap-metal bands like LIMP BIZKIT that came along in the wake of RAGE's success..."I do apologize for LIMP BIZKIT. I really do. I feel really bad that we inspired such bullshit. They're gone, though. That's the beautiful thing. There's only one left, and that's RAGE, and as far as I'm concerned, we're the only one that matters."

Commerford...climbed a 20-foot backdrop onstage as LIMP BIZKIT came up to accept the "Best Rock Video" award at the 2000 MTV Video Music Awards. (He) said about the incident: "It's aged like wine...Back in 2000, it was like, 'Dude, I saw you do that. What was that all about?' Now, it's like, 'Dude, I saw you do that. That was so fuckin' awesome! I love that.'" Commerford, who spent a night in jail as a result of the incident, added that if he could do it again he would have "ripped that thing to the ground and shredded it."

The bassist is promoting his new band, WAKRAT, and also started an electronic music project earlier this year called FUTURE USER. RAGE AGAINST THE MACHINE's new DVD, "Live At Finsbury Park", is set to be released October 16. The concert was filmed in 2010 in London.

2. Blah...

One of the men formerly of a group self-important children who had everything growing up and acted like spoiled douchebags to the "everyman" who tried to interview them has a bad opinion of a group of teens who made good?

Yes, Rage's music is far superior to Limp Bizkits... why throw stones?

That would be simply as shallow as if Fred Durst wanted to compare which band had sold out more arenas... petty and pointless.

I hope Commerford gained whatever he lacked by bad mouthing another band. Not shallow at all.

3. Apology accepted

Now, if we could get an apology from Pearl Jam and the surviving members of Nirvana for the awful "sound alikes" that were unleashed on us in the 90's....
