Nookie (4:26)

Cover of Significant Other

From Significant Other and 15 other releases

Nookie” is the first single released from the album Significant Other by Limp Bizkit. It was nominated for “Best Performance” at the 2000 Grammy Awards.

One of the reasons lead singer Fred Durst attributes to the song becoming a success is that it’s sung slower, and in a fashion where his lyrics are easier to understand, in contrast to Three Dollar Bill, Yall$’s style, where the lyrics in some songs are indistinguishable due to the fast screaming style Fred uses on the album.

The song features an interlude at the end, which features Fred Durst breaking a couple of items with the band laughing, leading into “Break Stuff”.

The song is about Fred Durst’s relationship with a past girlfriend, in which she used him for his money, and cheated on him with his friends, and yet he continued to stay with her despite the emotional distress this caused. The hook reveals his reason for staying in the relationship, which was because of the sex. “Hey, what the hell, what you want me to say?/ I won’t lie, that I can’t deny/ I did it all for the nookie”.

In a 2008 interview with British magazine Kerrang, guitarist Wes Borland had the following to say about how the lyrical content turned out: “The music was cool, but I didn’t like the lyrics at all. The funny thing is that Nookie was actually the working title. When we were in the studio there was a porn magazine that had the word ‘nookie’ on the cover, so I was like, ‘This song’s called Nookie!’, I never thought someone would actually run with it.
