Chocolate Starfish and the Hot Dog Flavored Water [Explicit Lyrics]

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Jon Wiederhorn
It's hard to compete with the unadulterated poetry of a line like, "I did it all for the nookie, so you can take that cookie and stick it up your yeah!" from the multi-platinum album Significant Other. But Limp Bizkit thrive under pressure and relish the chance to challenge -- or at least piss off -- both fans and critics. The band's third disc, Chocolate Starfish and the Hotdog Flavored Water, quickly bursts into confrontational mode on "Hot Dog," with vocalist Fred Durst saying the "F" word more than 30 times before taking a dig at Trent Reznor. From there, Durst attacks shit-talkers, backstabbers, unfaithful women, and journalists. Even the album title sounds like ...

It's hard to compete with the unadulterated poetry of a line like, "I did it all for the nookie, so you can take that cookie and stick it up your yeah!" from the multi-platinum album Significant Other. But Limp Bizkit thrive under pressure and relish the chance to challenge -- or at least piss off -- both fans and critics. The band's third disc, Chocolate Starfish and the Hotdog Flavored Water, quickly bursts into confrontational mode on "Hot Dog," with vocalist Fred Durst saying the "F" word more than 30 times before taking a dig at Trent Reznor. From there, Durst attacks shit-talkers, backstabbers, unfaithful women, and journalists. Even the album title sounds like a snide satire of a pompous album title like Smashing Pumpkins' Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness. Durst's lyrical tirades are so fierce they threaten to obscure the music, which is pretty funkin' phat. Like Significant Other, this album is rooted in groove-laden rap-metal, but this time around the Bizkit downplay distorted bombast, focusing more on Wes Borland's galactic guitar squiggles, John Otto's hip-hop beats, and DJ Lethal's creative scratching. The caustic tracks "Rollin' Air Raid Vehicle" and "Rollin' Urban Assault Vehicle" are bolstered by guest raps by DMX, Method Man, and Redman, and "Getcha Groove On" benefits from an appearance by Xzibit. But it's creative cuts such as "Livin' It Up" which samples the Eagles' "Life in the Fast Lane" and "Hold On" which includes some unexpected CSNY-style vocal harmonies that make The Hot Dog Flavored Water truly tasty.
All Music Guide - Stephen Thomas Erlewine
The scatological meaning of Chocolate Starfish and the Hot Dog Flavored Water is obvious to anyone who's graduated junior high. Hot dogs and chocolate starfishes are metaphors, as Fred Durst uses them to illuminate his one topic, how nobody understands him. He occasionally frames his rage as us versus them, as on "My Generation," but, ultimately, it's all about himself. Durst dwells on bad things said about him, dismissing the criticism that he helped stoke the fires at Woodstock 99 with a round of the "critics that don't get it," and devoting a song to an attack at labelmate Trent Reznor. Some fans may empathize with Durst, but will it resonate?

    Makes me wanna vomit

    Limp Bizkit is probably one of the worst bands ever, and either this or their newest one could rate as worst album. None of the band members have any talent whatsoever, everything just revolves around their pathetic, sellout white rapper wannabe frontman. It's truly hard to believe how low metal has sunk in a single generation.

    limp bizkit

    my favorite songs from this CD are boiler and my way. I first liked boiler for the video I saw but the second time I heard it I liked the music. I liked my way because it was long and had a lot of cool effects. It also got first place in MTv but I dint like it just because of that.

    Not just for Generation Y

    I actually FOUND this CD in a used computer my mom bought. I never would have bought it on my own. But I have been listening non-stop for a week. This is the best CD I have heard in a LONG time. It totally rocks and combines the energetic beat with sublime hypnotic guitar riffs and tasty bits of electronica.

    LIMP BIZKIT HAS A TIGHT @$$ CD!!!!!!!

    I am the #1 Limp Bizkit fan because I have everything to has to involve with Limp Bizkit in anyway. They have great music and I highly recommend it to everyone! I've got to give credit to everyone in the band! Fred, Wes, Sam, John, and DJ are the best every! I have been a fan and I will always remain a loyal fan forever! I recommend every cd they have because they are the bomb and I know everyone will agree with me! What can I say, I am really the #1 fan and I think they should win awards everytime!

    the starfish have spoken

    This is yet another great limp bizkit release. The songs are catchy, and their words easy to remember. They have their share of profanity, but that is the norm for LB. There are some songs that aren't on the radio that are, well, comical. The title is well worth your money!!!

    Kick #@% CD

    This cd was well paid for. It gave what you paid for and much more. I first bought it for 2 or 3 songs but after hearing the whole cd for the first time I liked all of them. I bought this cd last year and I still listen to it. All so Korn is good too, it brought Limp Bizkit to the music business after hearing their demo and then they started the Family Value Tours. They have a lot of tight bands in the tour.

    Limp Bizkit's Best Yet!

    This CD kicks major butt! This Cd is compiled with awesome guest appearences by DMX and others and should be a CD remembered for a long time. Although ''Significant Other'' was their only other major smash, Limp Bizkit should keep kicking butt in the music industry.

    Bizkit is the shit!!!

    This is by far the best album of all time. Fred Durst is the hottest guy in the world.

    Its juz another ordinary rock album...

    It's just another ordinary rock/metal album.There's nothing really special about it.Maybe itz just the reputation that Limp Bizkit had grown after the movie MI2.Although a few tracks may be a catch to people but some are still rather not well made.

    An average cd by an average band.

    The new cd by Limp Bizkit is nothing special at all. It is trendy and seemed to be written in a major rush, which is sad because it has been two years since the release if the infamous ''Significant Other''. The new cd is mediocre and has the dumbest title that I have ever heard in my life. The first cd was a good rock album because it was made for music and not for money, or trying to stay in the spotlight. The second album was good and had some songs that would stay in your head as the new one does, although it leaned more towards a rap album. The new album ''chocolate starfish and the hotdog flavored water'' is worth listening to, but is not their best work. The only people who would actually want to buy this album would be faithful Limp bizkit fans.

    Introducing...... the chocolate starfish and the hot dog flavored water!

    Limp Bizkit is awesome! I am one of the many people who limp with da Bizkit! Hot dog, which has 48 curses (I counted), My generation which Fred Durst expresses his seriousness over his generation, full nelson when he gets tired of when someone talks behind his back, and all the other songs especially my way and rolling which are da bomb! In track 15, Ben Stiller even likes it! If Ben Stiller likes it, ya better like it! The money is worth it if ya family can't get on napster, cause napster sux after taking off the copyrighted songs, so go on this site and get Chocolate Starfish and the Hot Dog flavored water! That name is so cool!Plus ya all will like the cover, it's fat! So keep rolling, rolling on barnesandnoble.com and get this album today! Ya won't regret it!

    Oh My

    I remember their first CD, Three dollar bill. While not matching that of Korn, it was not bad. In fact, it was worth buying. The second CD strayed from the greatness of the original, but still retained some of the original Limp. And now for the third CD.........all I have to say is that Limp Bizkit has been takin over by the fame bug.
