Officially, the Hulu Lollapalooza Livestream was not set to have replays, but that’s hardly stopped the action from proliferating online. One of this weekend’s most buzzed-about performances out of Lollapalooza 2021 in Chicago was the hour-long set that Limp Bizkit performed on Saturday night. For those looking to relive the action or just enjoy it for the first time, check it out below via YouTube.
For the most part, the classic Limp Bizkit lineup — Fred Durst (vocals), Wes Borland (guitar), Sam Rivers (bass), and DJ Lethal (turntables) — is intact, with drummer John Otto MIA in recent weeks. Hired gun Brandon Pertzborn (Marilyn Manson, Doyle, Corey Taylor) is behind the kit.
Limp Bizkit’s set followed a club date at The Metro with Spiritbox that took place on July 29th. At the end of the set, frontman Fred Durst introduced “a new song from the new album” which DJ Lethal spun for the crowd. At Lollapalooza, the band did the same, but with a different song — “Dad Vibes.”

- DJ Lethal quick set: DMX “Party Up (Up In Here)”/Cypress Hill “Insane In The Brain”

Watch for the “Loop Daddy” himself, Marc Rebillet making an appearance alongside Fred Durst in the crowd at the end of the set. I had to chug six cans of Liquid Death Moutain Water to murder my thirst after catching that meeting of legends.
No word when a new Limp Bizkit record might emerge, but the band has been working on it for a decade. In fact, it’s already been more than 10 years since I published my glowing review of the band’s Gold Cobra here at The Rock Father Magazine.
