Leaving the Navy after just two years, Durst moved to Jacksonville where he worked as a landscaper and a tattoo artist while developing an idea for a band that combined elements of rock and hip hop.Before forming Limp Bizkit, Durst played with three bands: Split 26, Malachi Sage, and 10 Foot Shindig.Formation of Limp Bizkit (1994–1998)See also: Limp Bizkit and Limp Bizkit discographyFred Durst along with Limp Bizkit at the 42nd Annual Grammy Awards on February 23, 2000.In 1994, Durst, Malachi Sage bassist Sam Rivers, and Rivers cousin John Otto jammed together and wrote three songs. Guitarist Wes Borland later joined. Durst named the band Limp Bizkit because he wanted a name that would repel listeners. Limp Bizkit developed a cult following in the underground music scene when its covers of George Michaels Faith and Paula Abduls Straight Up began to attract curious concertgoers.Later, when Korn performed in town as the opening act for Sick of It All, Durst invited Korn to his house. He was able to persuade bassist Reginald Arvizu to listen to demos of the songs Pollution, Counterfeit, and Stuck. Korn added a then-unsigned Limp Bizkit to two tours, which gave the band a new audience. DJ Lethal, formerly of the hip hop group House of Pain, joined the band as a turntablist, Dursts disagreements with Borland led the guitarist to quit and rejoin the band.In 1997, Limp Bizkit signed with Flip Records, a subsidiary of Interscope Records, and released their debut album, Three Dollar Bill, Yall to minimal response. Durst was appointed Senior Vice President of A&R at Interscope. On October 23, 1997, Durst met the band Staind, but friction quickly emerged between the two over the cover art of Stainds album. Durst unsuccessfully attempted to remove Staind from a concert bill shortly before their performance, but after hearing the band play, he was so impressed that he signed them to Flip/Elektra, recorded a demo with the band, and co-produced their next album, Dysfunction.After Limp Bizkit finished a tour with the band Deftones, Durst and DJ Lethal were asked by Max Cavalera, formerly of the band Sepultura, to appear on Bleed, a song from the self-titled debut of his new band Soulfly. Cavalera stated that producer Ross Robinson recommended that he work with Durst. Durst also made an appearance on Korns album Follow the Leader. Jonathan Davis had intended to write a battle rap with B-Real of Cypress Hill, but the latters label wouldnt let him do it, and Durst was tapped instead. Davis and Durst wrote the lyrics for All in the Family, which featured the two vocalists trading insults. Davis and Durst would often offer suggestions for each others lyrics, a lyric written by Durst as tootin on your bagpipe was changed to fagpipes by Davis, who stated I helped him bag on me better.Durst began to take an interest in filmmaking, directing the music video for Limp Bizkits single Faith in promotion for its appearance in the film Very Bad Things, he was unsatisfied with it and made a second video which paid tribute to tour mates Primus, Deftones and Motley Crue, who appeared in the video.Mainstream success and controversies (1998–2005)Fred Durst with Limp Bizkit 2011Limp Bizkit achieved mainstream success with the albums Significant Other (1999) and Chocolate Starfish and the Hot Dog Flavored Water (2000). In the summer of 1999, Limp Bizkit played at the highly anticipated Woodstock 99 festival in front of approximately 200,000 people. Violence occurred during and after their performance, including fans tearing plywood from the walls during the song Break Stuff. Several sexual assaults were reported in the aftermath of the concert. Durst stated during the concert, People are getting hurt. Dont let anybody get hurt. But I dont think you should mellow out. Thats what Alanis Morissette had you motherfuckers do. If someone falls, pick em up. We already let the negative energy out. Now we wanna let out the positive energy. Durst later stated in an interview, I didnt see anybody getting hurt. You dont see that. When youre looking out on a sea of people and the stage is twenty feet in the air and youre performing, and youre feeling your music, how do they expect us to see something bad going on? Les Claypool told the San Francisco Examiner, Woodstock was just Durst being Durst. His attitude is no press is bad press, so he brings it on himself. He wallows in it. Still, hes a great guy.In June 2000, Limp Bizkit performed at the WXRK Dysfunctional Family Picnic, but showed up an hour late for their set. An Interscope spokesman stated that there was confusion over the bands set time. During the bands performance, Durst criticized Creed singer Scott Stapp, calling him an egomaniac. Creeds representatives later presented Durst with an autographed anger management manual during an appearance on Total Request Live. In the summer, Limp Bizkits tour was sponsored by the controversial file sharing service Napster.

In court, Durst, represented by his long-time attorney, Ed McPherson, testified he had warned the concerts organizers Aaron Jackson, Will Pearce and Amar Tailor and promoter Vivian Lees of the potential dangers of such minimal security. After viewing video and hearing witness testimony, the coroner said it was evident that the density of the crowd was dangerous at the time Limp Bizkit took the stage and Durst should have acted more responsibly when the problem became apparent. Durst stated that he was emotionally scarred because of the teenagers death.In 2002, Durst was tapped to write songs for Britney Spears, and later said that he was in a relationship with her. Spears denied Dursts claims. In a 2009 interview, he explained that I just guess at the time it was taboo for a guy like me to be associated with a gal like her.
