Wes Boreland Seems Bummed to Be In "Over The Hill" LIMP BIZKIT
Wes Borland always struck me as the "coolest" (maybe least lame?) member of Limp Bizkit… in that he seemed self-aware enough to realize it was all a farce, so he chose to dress up just as silly as the music was. Borland eventually quit the band only to rejoin only to quit again and once again, finally rejoin.
It seems like Borland has finally come to terms with the fact that playing in Limp Bizkit is just a job, as his most recent post about hitting the open seas with ShipRocked reads like somebody about to do an overnight shift at McDonalds. The ShipRocked cruise features Limp Bizkit as headliners with additional performances from bands like Sevendust, POD, Chevelle and other big late 90s acts. He posted the following to Instagram (and eventually deleted it):
“Getting all packed up this week for Broatchella 2015. It’s the same as Brochella but it’s off land. Can’t wait to see me some roided out tribal tattooed spray tanned Jell-O shot filled bohunks do their best drunk MMA impressions in the top deck mosh pit. Whenever we aren’t on stage, I’ll be curled up fetal position in my cabin, palms up, while I desperately cling to the last week of my thirties as it slips through my hooked fingers. So, I’d like to give a shout out now to all the other over-the-hill late nineties/early 2000s bands going on the cruise: Let’s give these people the raging alcohol fueled nostalgia fest they’re paying for guys! I know we can do it if we tune down low enough!”
Poor guy! Somebody get him a Tapout shirt to wipe his tears off with.
ThePRP points out that the "Brochella" gag is a recurring bit of Borland's:
At least you're working, Wes. It could be worse. You could be in Adema! Also, way to take a shot at the only people who still care about your band and pay your bills. You could always quit, buddy.
