The seminal Nirvana tracks are performed straight with no alterations, though Limp Bizkit guitarist Wes Borland cheekily segues into the opening riff of Sweet Child O’ Mine at the end of the medley.

Guitar memester and occasional miracle product maker Chibson USA shared last year that Fred Durst had been gifted their notorious one-of-a-kind ‘Durst Burst’ guitar. Durst reportedly asked if “this was some type of a deeply-layered attempt at trolling,” though upon contemplation of the guitar, shared that his 90s baseball cap-wearing persona was in fact a character.
“The baseball cap persona which so many people would both love and hate was simply Fred’s take on an antagonistic Andy Kaufman bad guy wrestler persona, mixed with some Tony Clifton-isms for good measure, a secret that not many would know, let alone understand,” Chibson shared, adding that they have since made a replica of the ‘Durst Burst’.
