Alright partner, you know what time it is: time for Limp Bizkit merchandise and albums! Rock the Fred Durst look with a Limp Bizkit cap, or learn how this troupe pioneered nu metal with albums such as 1997's groundbreaking debut, Three Dollar Bill Y'all, which shifted two million copies alone; Chocolate Starfish and the Hot Dog Flavoured Water, their biggest and most famous LP hit to date with eight million sold since 2000 and was at the time the fastest-selling rock album ever; or rarer cuts like remix effort New Old Songs, featuring luminaries such as P Diddy, Timbaland, The Neptunes, and William Orbit on the credits.
