Limp Bizkit - Chocolate Starfish and the Hot Dog Flavored Water
A Sneak Peek...
On October 17, 2000, "Limp Bizkit's" third album came out, we could not have ended this day without mentioning this album, an album with the hallucinatory name (perhaps the most), with an exploding amount of singles and an insane amount of sales !!
This album came out a year after the band's breakthrough album "Significant Other" which exploded on charts and radio stations, with the outbreak of Nu Metal, as it took over the success of the previous album.
Please note that this album sold more than a million copies in the first week of its release !!!
In the first week !! 1,054,511 copies !!
On the day the album was released it sold 400,000 copies! In the second week, the album sold close to 400,000 copies !!
It became the: The biggest first-week sales debut for a rock album in the United States since 1991 (the year the survey began).
It maintained the first place on the Billboard for two weeks in a row!
Anyone who is wondering what the origin of the album name is, so after we tell you what its origin is, you will be sorry that you were wondering but we must give you this service...
The name of the album is divided into two.
The first part is "Chocolate Starfish", which in American slang is a nickname for the butt hole.
The second part is "Hot Dog Flavored Water", it is coming from a joke by the band's guitarist Wes Borland who at one of the band's stops on the tour in a truck parking lot saw different types of juices with hallucinatory names.
This album has some bombshells and anthems that accompanied us a lot in the 2000s, "Hot Dog" consisting of the word FUCK, forty-six times, "My Generation" and "Rollin" strong with the clips we saw non-stop. We can not forget the "Take a Look Around" that put us in constant hypnosis and the deadly "Boiler". This album also features interesting guests such as: Scott Weiland, DMX, Method Man & Redman and Trent Reznor.
