Limp Bizkit snap indie kids in half
Nu-metal moshers storm Main Stage
Graeme Johnston - 28 August 2010
Mosh pits chock full of nostalgic twenty-somethings reliving their teens by beating each other black and blue to tunes like
'Break Stuff' circled so big that unwilling indie kids lost their pit virginity.
Opening with 'Rollin', Fred Durst and co. tore through classic mosh tunes like 'My Generation' and 'Eat You Alive' in front of a stage set up with just a Union Jack.
For 'Life In The Fast Lane', Durst climbed the barrier to lead the crowd through a deafening rap-a-long, while closing on a riff-laden cover of George Michael's 'Faith' he encouraged hundreds of women to climb onto shoulders.
This evening at Leeds Festival sees Cypress Hill, Weezer, Paramore and Blink 182 take to the Main Stage.
