You know what totally comes to mind for literally no one in 2021 when you mentioned Limp Bizkit? Bikini-clad supermodels working the catwalk. But those two things incongruously met in 1998 on MTV's spring break edition of its "rock 'n' roll fashion show," Fashionably Loud. Rebecca Romijn was "your host" from in Negril, Jamaica. Beautiful young women strutted, pranced and high-fived the crowd while showcasing swimwear from the era's hottest designers. And nu-metal rising stars Limp Bizkit and U.K. industrial-metal veterans Pitchschifter played two songs each, off 1997's Three Dollar Bill, Y'all and '98's www.pitchshifter.com, respectively. Flashback to the surreal, time-capsule event above.
