Turn-of-the-century nu-metal hitmakers Limp Bizkit had one of the most buzzed-about sets at last weeknd's Lollapalooza festival, trending on Twitter for essentially the rest of the weekend after their Saturday night (July 31) performance. The attention the band received for their performance could be seen not only in social media chatter, but in overall consumption of the band's catalogue, which was up across the board in the days following the gig.
Over the Sunday and Monday (Aug. 1 and 2) after their performance at the Chicago festival, Limp Bizkit posted a combined 1.9 million on-demand streams, according to MRC Data. That was up 27% from the Sunday and Monday from a week earlier (July 25 and 26), when the band accounted for a combined 1.5 million on-demand streams. In addition, their song sales were up 100% over the same period, though on a significantly smaller scale -- from 500 songs sold to 1000.
