Rage Against the Machine's Bassist Crashes Limp Bizkit's VMA Win
When: 2000 MTV Video Music Awards
In "celebration" of Limp Bizkit's win for Best Rock Video over their own, Rage Against the Machine bassist Tim Commerford climbed an onstage display and sat perched atop it, watching Fred Durst awkwardly both ignore and acknowledge him. Arrested afterwards, Commerford was defended by bandmate Tom Morello, who claimed the police "overreacted," especially since the bassist didn't actually hurt anybody. Unless you count Fred Durst's feelings. Which we do not.
