My Way (4:33)

Cover of Chocolate Starfish and the Hot Dog Flavored Water

From Chocolate Starfish and the Hot Dog Flavored Water and 10 other releases

My Way” is a song by Limp Bizkit, from their album Chocolate Starfish and the Hot Dog Flavored Water. It was the fifth and final single released from the album.

There were three versions of this single released, but only two were widely available. The album version of the song was used as the official theme song for the WWF Pay-Per-View event, WrestleMania X-Seven.

Musically, the song is somewhat of a step away from what was the norm for Limp Bizkit during this time. Fred Durst makes greater usage of singing than rapping on the track, the rhythmic timing of the verse is somewhat more complex than they would normally play in, and Wes Borland played mainly complex melodic lines and fully voiced guitar chords instead of the root/fifth powerchords used in most . DJ Lethal plays and scratches a sample of “Check out my melody” from the Eric B. & Rakim song “My Melody” from their groundbreaking 1987 album Paid In Full.

The music video for “My Way” is a departure from the perceived serious tone of the song itself, which according to Fred Durst was done because “bands tend to take themselves way too seriously”. Also, as the video doesn’t follow any specific theme, and was basically done however the band wanted without restriction, it does follow the theme of the song in that sense.
