Douchebag

Album: Gold Cobra (2010)
  • This is the first single from the fifth studio album by the Nu Metal band Limp Bizkit, Gold Cobra. It is the group's first studio album since 2003's Results May Vary. The record is also the first release by the original lineup of the band (vocalist Fred Durst, guitarist Wes Borland, bassist Sam Rivers, drummer John Otto and turntablist DJ Lethal), since 2000's Chocolate Starfish and the Hot Dog Flavored Water.
  • Durst discussed this song's meaning with MTV News: "A song like 'Douchebag,' to me, it's about... I was really pushed around and bullied a lot growing up, so having that torture in my life, until forming Limp Bizkit, and still having it against me in Limp Bizkit, but me at least having a voice, a way to fight back and release my aggression through the music," he said. "I've always had a problem with the irony that came with Limp Bizkit's music fueling bullies, when really, my aggression and my pent-up anger is mainly focused at these bullies. So I'm mainly calling those people douche bags, and a few other select individuals. Everybody has their own interpretation, and you will have a douche bag in your life that this song will apply to, and you just turn this f---er up really loud, because the riff is out of control."
