At the end of the 1990s, one of the biggest rap rock bands in the world was Limp Bizkit, and Trainwreck claims that they were able to perfectly convey the mood of an irate, angst-filled audience.
One of the most anticipated shows of the weekend was theirs, and there had already been several aggressive outbursts during performances by bands like Korn.
However, Limp Bizkit’s performance is seen as a turning point in the weekend that led to several attendees damaging property and threatening other audience members.
Loudwire reported and stated, If you saw the HBO Woodstock ’99 documentary, you saw that a lot of the blame for the violence during the event fell on Limp Bizkit.
However, was Limp Bizkit truly at fault when Woodstock ’99 turned into a violent riot?
It’s hard to imagine three days of calm and love with the extreme heat, lack of supplies, crowds, and aggressive music.
Instead, mentioning Woodstock ’99 brings to mind rioting, sexual assaults, and even fatalities.
But one band, Limp Bizkit, often gets blamed for all the issues and all the causes of the issues that ultimately resulted in the demise of the music festival.
People often overlook the fact that the worst of the violence at Woodstock ’99 didn’t even take place on the day when Limp Bizkit performed.
