Fred Durst Eggs On Rapists at Woodstock '99
When: July 24th, 1999
As Limp Bizkit were getting ready to perform at the 30th anniversary of an original festival of peace and music (which was fast descending into violence and vandalism), concert organizers asked frontman Fred Durst to say something to help settle things down. Instead, he got on the microphone, in front of an unruly crowd of 200,000 people, and said this: "I don't think you should mellow out. This is 1999, motherfuckers—stick those Birkenstocks up your ass!" Then they played their song "Break Stuff." The result, of course, was further mayhem. Including a reported gang rape in the mosh pit right in front of the stage during Limp Bizkit's set.
