Although Durst's tattoos were unimpressive, he was able to persuade Reginald "Fieldy" Arvizu to listen to a demo, consisting of the songs "Pollution", " Counterfeit " and "Stuck". Korn added a then-unsigned Limp Bizkit to two tours, which exposed the band to a new audience. Joining the band gave Lethal an opportunity to experiment with his turntable technique in ways that hip hop had not allowed him to do, helping shape the band's style.
