Dispute Over Limp Bizkit Reportedly Leads To Killing

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.

LMAO @ Branded!!!
Not sure how bad the wigs are in your neck of the woods. But in Mpls, if I see one more pair of pants hanging off some dudes butt I'm going to blind myself.
Don't any of these idiots realize, that yes, back in the day baggy pants were worn because they were forced to wear them in prison but nowadays?
Wearing baggy pants hanging off your butt in prison means you want to be somebody's b*****.
Clueless, but then what do you expect from people who think a bunch of electronic beeps qualifies as music.

i agree with post 13, i live here too and didnt hear anything about it. just sounds like a couple of bogans (rednecks) in an alcohol fueled fight. i wouldnt look too much into which band was playing it sounds like a minor detail that looks good in an article heading.

seriously but, i would lay down my life to have that filth kept off my stereo too, RIP to the poor bugger.

if i am ever to meet wes, at a black light burns concert fo' sho', i'd love to ask him, why was he ever even in LB. the rest of the members almost all have ok excuses. dj lethal, john otto, etc. but wes sticks out. a lot. for obvious reasons (the makeup) and just his personality and talent too (IMO of course, jic the ranting begins after this comment).

So now Limp Bizkit's making people homicidal instead of Suicidal?

Well, some might call that "progress".

nh, Btw, I fully agree with you on Wes.

He's a really talented and innovative guitarist. Honestly, he's the reason why've ever bothered to listen to any of LBs stuff.

His work on Starfish is awesome, and it was a brave move from him to use clean sound (using Roland JC-120 Jazz Chorus amps, for those who are interested ;) especially at the time when everybody was going for that super distorted sound.


Great guitarist with great sounds and lots of ideas. He's more innovative to me than Tom Morello

He's more technical than Morello, Tom's guitar parts are actually really easy, he just has a good play on effects. LB's drummer is actually pretty good too. They just need to get rid of key elements and/or singer.

Murderers, even presumed, shouldn't be granted the respectful title of "Mister". Mister insinuates a sense of civility, upstanding nature and a degree of good moral judgement (even if you musical tastes are sub-par).

Why are British people so polite? I wish I were that naive.

I don't make fun of murder, but this is just a case in point that Limp Bizket sucks. He died a heroic death, trying to save the world from the abortion that is LB's so-called music.

in a day in age of every single musician in any interview describing their current/next record as "our (best/heaviest) album yet" and "everyone's gonna love it", wes comes out in an interview saying about their next record "everyone that hated limp bizkit before is still going to continue hating us. we're not all of a sudden just gonna just change our sound" LMAO wes is awesome. unfortunately, LB is not.
