Fans think they've worked out why Limp Bizkit frontman Fred Durst has adopted a surprising new look.

The popular 90s rock band made an appearance at the Lollapalooza festival on Saturday (31 July), and it was the singer's new hairdo what got him trending on Twitter.

His new look involved a handlebar moustache and the 50-year-old rocked a medium length silver mane.

Fans seem to think that they know why he did it.

One Twitter user seemed to have it all figured out and wrote: "I think the reveal of their new album and the new song 'Dad Vibes' kinda makes it all make much more sense.

"Still, extremely tight show from a weirdly laid back Fred Durst lol."

Another said: "Limp Bizkit debuted new song 'Dad Vibes' at Lollapalooza. The song matches Fred Durst's new look perfect."

A third wrote: "I am in tears over Fred Durst in his old man getup at Lolla. 'Let me know if you're digging my dad vibes...'"

Seems legit.

After previously deleting all his Instagram posts, Durst started to update his page with a new selfie five days ago (July 29).

It was captioned: "Thinking about you 70."

As you can imagine, the comments section were having a great time.

One user wrote: "S***, I thought Richard Gere popped up from outta nowhere."

A second user added: "Anyone else see a little bit of a Bon Jovi resemblance?"

Whilst a third user decided to take aim at his 80s moustache and wrote: "Well let me tell ya something brother. That's a nice, HULKAMANIAC worthy moostaché."

Whether it was Hulk Hogan, David Spade or Richard Gere, the comparisons were endless.

Users still can't decide whether the new trim is his real hair or a wig.

Speaking of new trims, it's hard to forget England's Phil Foden's lightly dyed barnet.


Many England fans took to social media to copy the look.

Foden explained the thinking behind his haircut to the Independent, saying: "I've had the same haircut for ages now so I thought I would try something new and woke up this morning with a lot of comparisons to Gazza and Eminem.

"It was my own thing and people have turned it into something else.

"I remember watching highlights on the TV of Gazza, unbelievable player."

The 21-year-old continued: "The full nation knows what he means for the country and what he did. I wouldn't be too bad if I try to bring a bit of Gazza on the pitch."

Unfortunately his playing time was cut short and England couldn't get over the line in the final against Italy, but his trim will forever live in our memories.
