Late ’90s nu metal/alternative standouts Snot performed on the 1998 Ozzfest and frequently toured with or shared stages with many of the successful metal acts of the era. Unfortunately for the band their momentum came to an abrupt halt when frontman Lynn Straight was killed in a car accident. Snot had released only one studio album, 1997’s “Get Some,” and were working on a follow-up at the time of Straight’s passing. As a memorial to the singer, Snot released that album, “Straight Up,” with guest vocalists from the metal community including members of Limp Bizkit, Korn, Slipknot, Sevendust, Coal Chamber, System of a Down, Soulfly and more. The band disbanded following Straight’s death, but has periodically reformed and done successful tours in the decades since. Recently, Snot guitarist Mikey Doling took to social media to call out Limp Bizkit frontman Fred Durst for taking out a rapper on their upcoming “Still Sucks” tour, also called $not, but with a dollar sign in their moniker. 

“Mikey Doling here from the real Snot,” he said. “I’m making this video because there is a young rapper kid out there calling himself $not. I heard about him about a year and a half ago. [I] didn’t think nothing of it because he was in the hip-hop world, rapper — different worlds altogether. Well, now he has stepped into our lane, and I need to address it. Limp Bizkit just posted [dates for] a new tour, and they are taking this rapper kid named $not on tour with them. And I wanted to say to Fred Durst, if you see this video, how dare you, man? You were friends with Snot. Snot loved you, man. You came onstage with us and performed. Lynn [Strait] went on stage with you in Boston. And you know the incident I’m talking about. We were friends. We shared drinks, stage, music, all that, and all these years later you take an artist named $not on tour with you? What the f*ck is that, man? Bullsh*t. So, yeah. I had to address it,” Doling added. “That’s my two cents. And to that fake $not kid — [extends middle finger] right there, brother. There’s only one fucking Snot. Get some.”

It appears that Doling has since removed the video and post from social media.
