One of the best things about the internet is that already this year I think I’ve found my new favourite meme page on social media; a Limp Bizkit meme page.
As I scrolled through the page for an hour or so, laughing it up at the memes and comments and living in the past, I then found the need to check out the video clip for their track ‘Eat You Alive’ on YouTube coz it’s a rad track and the video clip is kinda cool, and then there were people commenting on the video clip saying they’re watching the clip in 2020, and then I was considering buying a red New York cap to pay homage to Fred Durst’s impeccable 90′s fashion.
Then after thinking about the hat I got to thinking, when the hell will Limp Bizkit release Stampede of the Disco Elephants?
It’s kinda like the last piece of the puzzle of albums everyone has been waiting forever for. We got Chinese Democracy in 2008 and Fear Inoculum last year, so surely Stampede of the Disco Elephants needs to be released this year to ring in the Roaring Twenties (except I’m sure the 20′s one hundred years ago was a lot more roaring than what we’re about to struggle through).
Having said that, a new Limp Bizkit album would totally make this decade roaring, so take that 1920′s! Is the world ready for a new Limp Bizkit album considering their last album, Gold Cobra was released in 2011? I think so! This world needs something a little less serious and the kids these days sure do need to listen to music that is completely immature and puerile yet heavy, it’s good for the development of their humour.
And then in 20 years time when they’re on social media looking at Limp Bizkit memes and then on YouTube watching old Stampede of the Disco Elephants clips they can comment asking if anyone still watching in 2040. A great future hinges on this album.
