There are over 200 artists performing at Reading Festival. Assuming you’re not one of those pricks that goes to a festival just to see the headliners, that’s a hell of a lot of bands you don’t (yet) give a shit about to trawl through in the hope of finding your new love. Plus, you’ve got a job, pubs exist and you don’t even have a tent yet, so time is in short supply. That’s why we exist.

The Puddle Of Mudd frontman’s band had just split up after one album, so the Limp Bizkit frontman helped put together a new line-up.

They were signed to Interscope and sold five million copies of their second debut album, Come Clean. FIVE MILLION.
