3. Limp Bizkit

If you think that Limp Bizkit fans are a bunch of violent, misogynist bullies, you aren't alone. "For years I looked into the crowd and saw a bunch of bullies and assholes who tortured me and ruined my life," Fred Durst told Rolling Stone in 2009. "They were using my music as fuel to torture other people, even dressing like me. The music was being misinterpreted, and the irony affected me and we stepped away . . . I don't even listen to any type of music that's like Limp Bizkit at all. I love jazz music and sad music. I'm a sentimental guy. I'm a romantic guy." Well, if that's how the frontman of Limp Bizkit feels about Limp Bizkit, imagine how the rest of us feel.
