Q&A: Wes Borland Tells Us Whether He Really Hates Being In Limp Bizkit, And Why Fleet Foxes Are Bad For Music

Yesterday, I wrote a post about Limp Bizkit guitarist Wes Borland. Bizkit are about to headline the ShipRocked cruise, along with a whole mess of other nü-metal bands, and Borland seemed to be dreading the prospect.

Pentatonix is an insanely popular a capella group from Texas who catapulted to fame after appearing on NBC’s talent show The Sing-Off.
