Hundreds Of Limp Bizkit Fans Get Duped; Rock Up For Show That Doesn’t Exist

Limp Bizkit fans

You can’t make this stuff up. Prior to what’s become an international stoner holiday, a Facebook event went viral suggesting that ’90s nu metal kings Limp Bizkit would be playing a one-off show in Dayton, Ohio on 4/20. At a petrol station no less.

Seeing no cause for concern, thousands ticked attending on the event, having seemingly been led astray by fake tweets that claimed the band would be performing a free show. Things got so out of hand that bootleg T-shirts were even printed for the event.

Despite frontman Fred Durst and the Dayton Police Department issuing a statement to say that the show wasn’t real, several hundred Bizkit enthusiasts showed up at the local Sunoco petrol station, half-drunk and looking to party. The joint was flooded with so many people that it had to close for the evening, with the horde of nu metal revellers shifting their hangout to a grassy area nearby.

Local news network Fox 45 were at the scene to cover what went down, and if you were at all curious as to what Limp Bizkit fans look like in 2016, you can suss out the video below.

Yes, it’s true that many of the folks in attendance knew that they weren’t about to throw down to “Break Stuff” at a local petrol station, but there were some who were genuinely disappointed by the lack of Durst and co.

“It’s a little disappointing, but [Fred Durst] might be around here,” said a fan who’d trekked half an hour for the event. “He might be in one of them buildings watching us. So we really don’t know that.”

If there’s one takeaway from all of this, it’s that Dayton, Ohio sounds like a wild, wild place.

A whole bunch of bizkit heads. #durstordie #makeamericalimpagain
