Gold Cobra

Album: Gold Cobra (2011)

Songfacts®:

  • The title track and second single from Limp Bizkit's sixth studio album is full of swagger and finds Fred Durst railing out as his detractors. "There's only one king on this hill it sure as hell ain't you," he rap/sings. The single was released on June 7, 2011.
  • Prior to the recording of Gold Cobra, Kerrang! magazine asked Fred Durst what he's been inspired by lyrically. He replied: "My inevitably tortured mind. Living the life that I'm living, it's all very inspiring. I'm quite a sponge. I absorb all types of energy and I'm a very sensitive person. There isn't anything that doesn't inspire me in life so the songs run a whole range of thoughts and feelings."
