Watch the new music video from Limp Bizkit, which is centered around the idea of world peace

Fred Durst and Limp Bizkit would love nothing more than to see world peace, and that’s apparent in the band’s just-released music video for the song, “Out of Style.” The group released the video Wednesday (Feb. 8), and it premiered on MTV, which seems very old-school and late-’90s Limp Bizkit appropriate. Watch the music video below.

Durst and Marc Klasfeld directed the clip. To sum up the idea of the video, they quote Jimi Hendrix, stating, “When the power of love overcomes the love of power, the world will know peace.”

The song is the opening track off Limp Bizkit’s sixth full-length studio album, “Still Sucks,” which arrived last year on Suretone. Read Audio Ink Radio’s review of the album here.

The clip features a bevy “world leaders” together, including Joe Biden, Vladimir Putin, Volodymyr Zelensky, Xi Jinping, and Kim Jong-un. It also has an appearance from “Mr. Maverick” in A.I. form. Things get weirder when the band throws down in a garage during a barbecue. Easter Eggs are also involved, and a deeper message, for those who dig deep.

According to a release, “The song and video are about unity, of course. Put aside the beef and let’s focus on space, the universe, and what’s next for us as a species. For as many answers as it offers, there are just as many questions.”

In other news, “Still Sucks” will be available for the first time in two different CD configurations on March 17. The band is offering a “Gold Disc” edition, which is a limited-edition numbered run, and a “Silver Disc” edition.
Both versions will include the record’s 12 songs. Pre-order the sets here.
