THREE DOLLAR BILL, YALL$, mixes a funky rhythm section, screeching guitars, half rapped, half screamed vocals and noisy sound sculpting (courtesy of DJ Lethal of House Of Pain fame) into a stew that wastes no time simmering and heads straight for a rolling boil. Taking cues from Rage Against The Machine and buddies Korn, the band creates a nearly impenetrable wall of sound.
Singer Fred Durst obviously has some issues to work out, and he uses the band as an opportunity to vent. Whether he's railing against fake scenesters ("Counterfeit"), a gold-digging girlfriend ("Stuck") or his own insecurities ("Nobody Loves Me"), Durst makes his opinions known in no uncertain terms, and at the top of his lungs to boot. Throw in a cover of George Michael's "Faith" and you've got a killer CD.
