Limp Bizkit's still-urgent "Break Stuff" finds its usual function, undoubtedly in line with its composers' intent, in providing an outlet for rageful energy that one could use to, yes, shatter anything in their path. But what if the anger-releasing banger got reimagined as the kind of show tune one hears in a Broadway theater?
That's where There I Ruined It comes in — that's the name of the YouTube channel that takes familiar songs and slathers them in clashing genre affectations often considered anathema to rock lovers and metalheads. (Need proof? Just check out a recent bluegrass-style take on "Chop Suey!" by System of a Down.) Last month, There I Ruined It shared its so-called "Broadway Edition" of the turn-of-the-millennium Limp Bizkit hit.
