Rap-metal kingpins Limp Bizkit's R-rated partycore hit its album-chart-topping pinnacle around the turn of the millennium. The Florida band had a solid underground following long before they were signed to Interscope in 1997. They have a singular approach to psychedelic guitars overdriven past the point of corrosive distortion into the realm of aural punishment, flanked by harsh funk basslines and hip-hop beats. Aggressive rap vocals occasionally venture into whiteboy soul-isms.
