Brisbanetimes.com.au has reported that a dispute over listening to Limp Bizkit has lead to an alleged murder in Australia. An excerpt from the story follows.
A Sunshine Coast man was bashed to death, put in a shopping trolley and dumped in a creek following a drunken fight over music selection, a court has heard.
The court was told Emmanuel McPherson, 48, objected when his flatmate, James Albert Madden, played a Limp Bizkit album on Mr. McPherson's stereo.
A fight then broke out, in which Mr. Madden allegedly beat Mr McPherson to death. Mr. Madden, 24, is on trial for Mr. McPherson's murder. He pleads not guilty to the charge.
The two men and two women, Kila Jones and Lee Jolae, had been drinking at a unit they shared on Reilly Road at Nambour on May 25, 2009 when the violence broke out.
The dispute reportedly began when Mr McPherson told Mr Madden not to touch his stereo and told him to turn the CD off. A Brisbane Supreme Court jury was told Mr. Madden hit Mr. McPherson about the head with an alcohol bottle, punched him and stomped on his face as he lay on the floor.

On the 31 Dec 1999, no planes came crashing out of the sky, nuclear bombs went off or microwave ovens tried to eat anyone. However, times were about to change and in the metal scene change was already well underway. Let us take a stroll through the decade in metal that was.
Many of the 90s big names like Emperor and Pantera prepared to give their last venomous scream dying off in the wake of ever diminishing interest in the metal scene that had plagued the 90s. In the year 2000 a band named “Limp Bizkit” came out with an album called "Chocolate Starfish and the Hotdog Flavoured Water" and in a storm nu-metal took over the public perception of heavy music, changing the face of metal irreparably. Although nu-metal had already been pioneered by Korn, bands like Deftones, Disturbed, Mudvayne and Linkin Park all had breakout releases in 2000. More...

The album will be released through Interscope Records in the early part of next year.
Speaking on the album title, lead vocalist Fred Durst stated: "The name of the new Limp Bizkit album is Gold Cobra. We will slowly be revealing the meaning of the title over the next few weeks. Cobras are quite venomous. I wish it were a much longer, more ridiculous title, but Gold Cobra is as ridiculous as we're going to get right now."

A single and video will be our way before that. We want to get to South America, etc asap and hit the US and Canada with the big finale.

Merch store is launching very soon w new website - limpbizkit.com - the LBF Army is all we need - YOU - to spread the word. It is time. Bring it!! More news soon."

California based metal outfit Machine Head has announced that due to an arguement with the events organizers over their billing, they will not be performing at Sonisphere U.K. on August 2nd. A message from the band reads as follows:
"It is with the utmost disappointment that we must announce that Machine Head will not be playing the Sonisphere date at Knebworth in the UK on August 2nd.
"In a turn of events that has left us absolutely baffled, the promoter of the UK Sonisphere festival recently placed, unbeknownst to us, LIMP BIZKIT in our 3rd slot on the festival. Seeing as the running order was a significant part of the negotiation and agreement between us and the promoter, and the fact that we had been advertised in that slot since the festival's announcement, you can imagine our surprise when we were "told" that we would now be playing in the 4th slot, under Limp Bizkit, and bizarrely, it was actually expected that we would quietly move down the bill without issue. We will not.
"Machine Head turned down the U.K.'s Download Festival, a festival we are very fond of - which incidentally, had us above Limp Bizkit - to commit to the Knebworth festival, as we felt a closer kinship to the bands performing this year. In an effort to make this situation in Knebworth work, we have spent more than a week striving to resolve this issue in a proper manner. Unfortunately, that did not happen. More...
Reunited nu metal outfit Limp Bizkit has announced that they will perform a free concert at the Pearl Concert Theater in Las Vegas, Nevada to make up for their cancelled performance at UFC 100. The band will be entering the studio soon after to commence work on their first full length album with their classic lineup since 2000s "Chocolate Starfish and the Hot Dog Flavoured Water."
Nu Metal pioneers Limp Bizkit are the latest band to be confirmed for the British leg of the Sonisphere Festival which will be taking place on the weekend of August 1st and 2nd at Knebworth. Limp Bizkit will be playing on the sunday which is the day Metallica will be headlining the event. Sunday also boasts performances from Nine Inch Nails, Machine Head and Alice In Chains amongst others.
Limp Bizkit has responded to the cancellation of their UFC expo appearance. In a statement, the band says that they didn’t want to cancel the performance, and that out of respect to fans that bought tickets to see the band in Sin City, they’ll perform that night at a not-yet-determined location. It will be Limp Bizkit’s only stateside show until they finish prepping their new album in the fall.
"Limp Bizkit did NOT, in any way, cancel the UFC 100 concert in Las Vegas. Truth is UFC and Interscope Records could not come to an agreement on certain DVD rights. With all respect to Mandalay Bay, the UFC were also unhappy with Limp Bizkit decision of wanting to switch the performance from the Beach at Mandalay Bay with its inappropriate layout for a heavy rock concert with Limp Bizkit, basically a stage in front of a pool, to a more standard concert venue also located at the Mandalay Bay, which was the House Of Blues. The UFC expressed they wanted a ‘party vibe’ for this event and would not settle for any venue besides the Beach for this and other reasons."
