Limp Bizkit rolled on with three key victories at the MTV Europe Music Awards 2001, presented last night (Nov. 8) at Frankfurt's Festhalle, Billboard Bulletin reports. Fred Durst's nu-metal outfit was named best group, and its "Chocolate Starfish and the Hot Dog Flavored Water" scored best album. Additionally, MTV viewers voted the act's official site as winner of the Web Award.

During the event, Durst joined rising act Puddle Of Mudd on a cover of Led Zeppelin's "Thank You," featuring a walk-on guitar solo by Jimmy Page. However, the performance was hampered by technical problems, as was a later set by Blink-182, which won best rock act.

Gorillaz scooped the best dance award, and their "Clint Eastwood" was named best song. Accepting the honor, front man Damon Albarn pointed to the nuclear-disarmament symbol on his T-shirt and said, "Bombing the poorest country in the world is wrong." His comment met with a muted reaction.

Craig David won best R&B act and best U.K. and Ireland act. Dido and Robbie Williams scored best new act and best male, respectively. The Avalanches won best video for "Since I Left You."
