Staind - Outside (Live with Fred Durst: Family Values Tour 1999)

I've always loved this song. I have always loved the live version the best, though, because I will admit, I do love Fred Durst. What can I say? I was a Limp Bizkit girl from 2000-2002. :D However, I think the live version of "Outside" has more feeling than the studio version. I think it's a song we can all relate to because I think we have all felt like outsiders looking in at one point in our lives. I think the emotions are raw in the live version, but I think emotions are always more raw when performers perform live. I'll post the studio version and you can judge for yourself.

I do like Staind in this time period, though. Another favorite of mine is "It's Been Awhile." I think they've disappeared, though. 


  1. Hi, Jessica Marie! Thanks for posting the two versons of "Outside." The producer in me prefers the studio track, but I also enjoyed the live performance clip. It was right around that time, in the late 90s, when I first started getting interested in nu metal and began listening to Limp Bizkit, Staind, Korn, Linkin Park and Rammstein. It didn't take long for me to crave harder and heavier music and soon I was collecting Rob Zombie, White Zombie, Powerman 5000, Marilyn Manson, Coal Chamber, Otep and Kittie. I gravitated to other music genres in the early years of the new millennium but, since 2013, modern metal is the only thing I ever listen to. That might seem surprising for a man going on age 66! :)

    Have a great weekend, dear Jessica Marie, and please join me for another special post on Monday when I celebrate my 7 year blogiversary!

    1. Hi Shady! I used to have the studio version of "Outside" on my first iPod (still have it too and it still works, just needs to be charged) and I like it, but there are just some days where I really like the live version better. I've been having a rough two years and the emotions in the live version, I can just relate to.

      2000 is when I first started getting into nu-metal and Eminem. I met a friend at summer camp that introduced me to Limp Bizkit,and Eminem. Then I had a long distance friend in Tower City that introduced me to Linkin Park, Kittie, Korn, and Rammstein. It was a fun time period before getting into really heavy metal, grunge, and rapcore acts like Twiztid. Yes, I'll pretty much listen to anything. :D My dad will listen too. He loves Manson and Korn as well.

      Definitely! I love celebrations!
