Jelly Roll Teams Up With Limp Bizkit To Cover The Who's 'Behind Blue Eyes'

May 13, 2024 - News

Attendees at this weekend’s Welcome To Rockville Festival in Florida got to experience a real treat. Not only did they witness Jelly Roll perform his own set, but they saw him join the nu-metal outfit Limp Bizkit for their rendition of The Who’s Behind Blue Eyes on Friday (10 May).

Limp Bizkit’s Fred Durst took on the first two verses and choruses solo before the break, in which he said to the audience, “I need you guys to help me pray right now.

“Pray for an angel; I need an angel,” he continued. “I need an angel to come out here and save me. I mean anything. Drop something from the sky. I don’t care what it is, just come out here please sweet angel. Come out here and save your brother, Freddy D!”

Saying “Save Me” again, this time, Durst referenced Jelly Roll’s hit of the same name before shouting, “Oh my God, ladies and gentlemen, Jelly Roll!”

Enter Jelly Roll, who sang a verse and chorus on his own before the pair closed the song together. You can check out footage of Jelly Roll and Limp Bizkit performing Behind Blue Eyes at Welcome To Rockville 2024 below.

Limp Bizkit originally covered the 1971 song on their 2003 album, Results May Vary, and the song has remained a setlist staple for years. Behind Blue Eyes wasn’t the only song Limp Bizkit covered while at Welcome To Rockville, bringing out their version of George Michael’s Faith and Nirvana’s Heart Shaped Box.

Jelly Roll recently discussed his decision to leave social media, revealing that he’s “never felt better or healthier.”

“I’m sure I’ll be back,” Jelly Roll said in a Variety interview, quipping that he’s “got bigger fish to fry”. Addressing his reasons for leaving social media, the Need A Favor singer clarified that he doesn’t “have a problem” with social media as a concept, but he was merely “too busy to waste hours of my life scrolling”.

He said of his current hiatus from social media: “I can honestly say that I’ve been off social media for a few months now, and I’ve never felt better or healthier mentally — never felt more clearheaded.”
