Limp Bizkit is an American nu metal band formed in 1994. The original lineup is consisted by Fred Durst (vocal), Wes Borland (guitars), Sam Rivers (bass), John Otto (drums) and DJ Lethal (turntables, samples and programming).
Limp Bizkit's music has predominately been described as nu metal and rap metal.
Durst wanted to make Limp Bizkit a "megaband" which could interpret into as many different styles of music as possible.Their work is marked by Durst's abrasive, angry lyrics.
Their music is noted for its "kinetic, frenzied energy". Otto is adept in drumming in a variety of styles ranging from "Brazilian" and "Afro-Cuban" music to "bebop" and "funk". Borland's guitar playing is "experimental" and "nontraditional", and he is noted for his creative use of six and seven-string guitars. Borland is also known by performing in costumes and body paint during concerts, appearing in bunny and kung fu suits, and painted as a skeleton and what he describes as a "burnt match"
Limp Bizkit has been nominated and won lots awards.

It has also been nominated for 3 American Music Awards for Favorite Alternative Artist winning one of them in 2002.
