LIMP BIZKIT's DJ LETHAL To MACHINE HEAD: 'The Only Thing Crushed Was Your Egos'

LIMP BIZKIT's DJ Lethal (a.k.a. Leor Dimant) has responded to MACHINE HEAD frontman Robb Flynn's assertion that MH was going to "crush" LB when the two bands shared the stage earlier today (Sunday, August 2) at the Sonisphere festival at the legendary Knebworth Park, United Kingdom.

MACHINE HEAD, who announced on July 7 that they were pulling out of the U.K. Sonisphere because the event's promoter "placed, unbeknownst to us, LIMP BIZKIT in our third slot on the festival," returned to the bill as the top-secret "special guests." They performed right before LIMP BIZKIT, hitting the stage at around 2:45 p.m.

Writing on MACHINE HEAD's official message board the day before the band's appearance at the festival, Flynn said, "We're going to fucking CRUSH LIMP BIZKIT!!!!"

Flynn addressed MACHINE HEAD's reason for returning to the Sonisphere bill during the band's performance at the event. He said, "After the promoters of Sonisphere begged us to come back onto this thing last week, the only even consideration that we made it for is for all of you fucking fans, man! It wasn't for Sonisphere, it wasn't for LIMP BIZKIT — it was for the fucking lunatics of this fucking country that have treated us so fucking good, man. It is an honor to play for you, guys. It is a privilege to play for you, guys. We are so fucking lucky to have a fan base like you, man."

Shortly after LIMP BIZKIT concluded its performance at Sonisphere, DJ Lethal posted the following message on his Facebook profile:

"Just finished playing at Sonisphere festival in London with NIN and METALLICA... As for (MACHINE HEAD), hahaha, the only thing crushed was your egos. lol... Suck it!!!!"

According to LimpBizkit.org, DJ Lethal commented further on the MACHINE HEAD situation while responding to a couple of fans on Facebook. He wrote, "I am a fan [of MACHINE HEAD] too; they just got pissy about some promoter stuff then got personal... I even wore a MH shirt on stage . . . They still played after crying about the whole thing. We would have gladly played before them; no big deal. But whaa whaa whaaaaaa…"

In a recent Twitter update, LIMP BIZKIT frontman Fred Durst claimed that he was "shocked" when he first heard that MACHINE HEAD was pulling out of the U.K. Sonisphere because of a dispute over LIMP BIZKIT's slot at the festival. However, he was quick to add, "[I] love MACHINE HEAD [and] always will."
