Limp Bizkit frontman Fred Durst has signed on with CBS to star in a new sitcom, which he will also co-produce. The show, which has the working title Douchebag, will be about an aging rock star attempting to balance his life as a celebrity with the pressures of raising his family. At this point, the program is still being developed, but it could appear as part of the network's fall lineup.

“Whoomp! (There It Is)”

Tag Team | 1993

Cecil Glenn — a.k.a., "D.C." — was a cook at Magic City, a nude dance club in Atlanta, when he first heard women shout "Whoomp — there it is!" Inspired by the party chant, he and partner Steve "Roll'n" Gibson wrote a song around it. Undaunted by label rejections, they borrowed $2,500 from Glenn's parents and pressed 800 singles, which quickly sold out in the Atlanta area. A record deal came soon after. Glenn said the song was meant for positive partying. "If you're going to say 'Whoomp there it is,' and you're doing something negative, we'd rather it not have come out of your mouth."
