Nookie - Limp Bizkit
(By Gerry & Rice)
SONG OF THE WEEK: THE NEXT GENERATION #1
Those of you not familiar w/
the guttural growls of Fred Durst, Limp Bizkit's lead singer, will quickly be quite at
home w/ them. For it is the screeching choruses of Limp Bizkit's songs that sets them
apart from other rap/metal bands such as Korn and Rage Against The Machine. Just listen to
"Faith," from Limp Bizkit's previous album, 3 DOLLAR BILL Y'ALL, and you'll see
what I mean. Fred Durst practically vomits out the words to George Michael's 80's hit.
After a bit of discussion, we decided that this song, amongst many others such as Kid Rock, fall in the heavy metal rap genre. I think the name speaks for itself, but if you need more conviction, Nookie is it. While not one of my favorites, I find it amusing to tell people to take their cookie and shove it up their.... erm... hm... anyways, my point is Limp Bizkit certainly sings with all of their lungs.
Recommendation? On Gerry's part, it's a heavy grunt of yes, Nookie style! On my part? I would get it if you have the hard drive space to spare. Hey, I'm a rock fan, but this style is just not the traditional rock / alternative that I'm comfortable with. Of course, if you like Kid Rock, then this would definitely be something you want to pick up. Give it a good listen thru a couple of times, and soon, you'll look at cookies in a whole different perspective. =)
