Limp Bizkit - Take A Look Around

Limp Bizkit did visit Sweden and Klubben during their club tour, the venue was totally sold out and the American rap metal band delivered their classic cuts on a sauna hot plate and the audience was trilled to see the band live again.

The lineup consists of Fred Durst (vocals), Wes Borland (guitars), Sam Rivers (bass) and John Otto (drums). Their work is marked by Durst's abrasive, angry lyrics and Borland's sonic experimentation and elaborate visual appearance, which includes face and body paint, masks and uniforms, as well as the band's elaborate live shows.

Formed in 1994, Limp Bizkit became popular playing in the Jacksonville, Florida underground music scene in the late 1990s, and signed with Flip Records, a subsidiary of Interscope, which released their début album, Three Dollar Bill, Yall (1997). The band achieved mainstream success with their second and third studio albums, Significant Other (1999) and Chocolate Starfish and the Hot Dog Flavored Water (2000), although this success was marred by a series of controversies surrounding their performances at Woodstock '99 and the 2001 Big Day Out festival.

Borland left the group in 2001, but Durst, Rivers, Otto and Lethal continued to record and tour with guitarist Mike Smith. Following the release of their album, Results May Vary (2003), Borland rejoined the band and recorded The Unquestionable Truth (Part 1) (2005) with Durst, Rivers, Lethal and drummer Sammy Siegler before entering a hiatus. In 2009, the band reunited with Borland playing guitar and began touring, culminating with the recording of the album Gold Cobra (2011), after which they left Interscope and later signed with Cash Money Records, but DJ Lethal was asked to leave the band soon after. They are currently recording their seventh studio album, Stampede of the Disco Elephants.

In February 2012, the band returned to Australia for the first time in 11 years, to perform at the Soundwave festival. Durst dedicated the shows to Jessica Michalik, who died during the Limp Bizkit performance at Big Day Out 2001. On February 24, Limp Bizkit signed with Cash Money Records, and released a new single, "Ready to Go" (Featuring Lil Wayne) taken from the upcoming seventh studio album, Stampede of the Disco Elephants with producer Ross Robinson, who also produced the band's debut album, Three Dollar Bill, Yall, and their 2005 album The Unquestionable Truth Part 1. The album is scheduled for a January 2014 release. 

Todays tune "Take a Look Around" is the tenth track on their their third album "Chocolate Starfish and the Hot Dog Flavored Water" and was released as the lead single from the album in July 2000. The song was released as two singles, "Take a Look Around: Part 1" and "Take a Look Around: Part 2". Both are differed in color and tracks ("Part 1" is silver and "Part 2" is gold). The melody of the song is derived from the original Mission: Impossible theme by the Argentine pianist, composer, arranger and conductor Lalo Schifrin
