About this album

Three Dollar Bill, Yall$ is the debut album of American rock band Limp Bizkit. Released in 1997, the album established the band’s trademark sound with the singles “Counterfeit”, which was influenced by hip hop and heavy metal, and “Faith”, a cover of a song by George Michael. Limp Bizkit’s rearrangement of the song incorporated heavier guitar playing by Wes Borland and scratching by DJ Lethal. Three Dollar Bill, Yall$ was produced by Ross Robinson, who was introduced to the band through Korn bassist Reginald Arvizu, who persuaded Robinson to listen to Limp Bizkit’s demo. Robinson was impressed by the band’s motivation and sound, and agreed to work with them. The album showcased an intentionally abrasive, angry sound which the band felt would attract a fanbase. The album attracted controversy when Interscope Records paid a Portland, Oregon radio station $5,000 to play the single “Counterfeit” fifty times, attracting “payola” criticisms toward the band and label. The band’s manager Jeff Kwatinetz later termed the plan as a “brilliant marketing move”. Durst stated, “It worked, but it’s not that cool of a thing.” Despite criticism, the paid air time did not increase sales, and much of the album’s sales resulted from consistent touring by the band. Durst directed a music video for the band’s single “Faith” in promotion for its appearance in the film Very Bad Things, but was unsatisfied with it, and directed a second video which paid tribute to tourmates like Primus, Deftones and Mötley Crüe, who appeared in the video.
