Limp Bizkit Logo

Limp Bizkit Logo
Limp Bizkit is an American band founded in 1994 in Jacksonville, Florida. The main style of the band is nu-metal, a form of the alternative metal trend. The musicians are known for the hash lyrics of their songs and aggressive singing of Fred Durst, the founder and soloist of the group.  The concerts of the group through all its life have been accompanied by scandals which concerned either the musicians themselves or their fans. Nevertheless, the band has been three times nominated for the Grammy award. By 2019, the group has sold more than 40 million copies of their discs, 16,5 million of which have been sold in the USA.

The logo and its meaning

Limp Bizkit Logo history


The main accent in the logo of Limp Bizkit is the name of the group. This name appeared quite accidentally. Just at the outset of establishing the group, its founders debated for a long time what name to choose. There were variations such as “Gimp Disco”, “Split Dickslit”, “Bitch Piglet” and others in the spirit of bands that played metal music in the nineties. Suddenly, the bass guitar of the band Sam Rivers, who was tired of the discussion more than others, stated that his brain turned into a “limp biscuit”. Fred Durst liked this phrase so much that he decided to make it the name of the band, slightly changing the spelling to “bizkit”. According to Durst, he wanted such a repulsive name for his band that would keep at a distance those listeners who were not the real fans of their music.
Limp Bizkit emblem
From 1999 to 2003 the logo was just the wordmark of the group, “Limp Bizkit”. In was written in fantasy-like font with a lot of curls and decorations. Its colour was changing from fire orange to honey yellow making the image of a dancing flame.  From 2003 the wordmark is made in a strict bold font very close to the commercial Plakette TS Heavy. It also took a small emblem to the left of the band’s name: a toon ghost with his hand with an open palm stretched ahead.
