RATM's Tim Commerford Apologizes for Limp Bizkit

(Radio.com) Rage Against the Machine's bassist Tim Commerford told Rolling Stone that he takes ownership for releasing Limp Bizkit on the world. "I do apologize for Limp Bizkit," Commerford said. "I really do. I feel really bad that we inspired such bulls-."

It's not that the musician or RATM fostered the band that made "Nookie" famous, but rather that their influence on Durst eventually led to Limp Bizkit.

At least that's what Durst has claimed. Last year in New York, Durst closed out a Limp Bizkit show at Best Buy Theater by playing a cover of Rage Against the Machine's "Killing in the Name Of." During the song, he said, while pointing to his heart, "When I first heard this song, that s- hit me right the f- here." Durst went on to explain how Zach de la Rocha's powerful lines, "F- you!/I won't do what you tell me!" changed him.

Commerford followed up his apology with, "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." Read more here.
