Limp Bizkit singles chronology

"Take a Look Around" is the first single by the American nu metal band Limp Bizkit from their third album Chocolate Starfish and the Hot Dog Flavored Water. The song was released as two singles, "Take a Look Around: Part 1" and "Take a Look Around: Part 2". Both are differed in color and tracks ("Part 1" is silver and "Part 2" is gold).

The song was featured on the Mission: Impossible II Soundtrack. It was chosen as the theme song for the movie over Metallica's "I Disappear"

The melody of the song is derived from the original Mission: Impossible theme, with the most prominent difference aside from the instrumentation being the change of time signature from 5/4 to 4/4. Internationally, the single reached number 3 in the United Kingdom in 2000.

It placed number 27 on the Triple J Hottest 100, 2000 following "My Generation" which placed at number 21 in the same list.

In recent shows (including the Download Festival 2009 and Rock Am Ring 2009), Limp Bizkit introduced the song, as a prank, as the first release from the band's forthcoming new album.

  2. Break Stuff (Live)

Music video

The video for the song features the band working undercover at a diner in order to retrieve a disc from a group of secret agents. But just as they are about to succeed, they are ordered to abort the mission, as the secret agents turn out to be decoys. The boys are soon kicked out of the diner, and the phone that Fred Durst uses at the beginning blows up right at the end. There are also scenes of the band performing in front of the diner. At the beginning of the video, the song "Break Stuff" can be heard in the car that the band arrives in.

The video was rarely shown in the States. Fred Durst has stated that he dislikes the video - despite the fact that he directed it - and the band decided to release the video only in various markets outside the U.S., particularly Europe. It is not available on either the DVD of Mission Impossible 2, or the band's DVD compilation Greatest Videoz.
