We know it's hard to keep track of all the Dursts in this world, and Limp Bizkit's Fred Durst wants to make things clear once and for all that he is NOT Robert Durst. You know, the subject of HBO's The Jinx who's been linked to two murders and the disappearance of his wife. That Durst.

Fred Durst, who is popularly known for doing it "all for the nookie," posted a photo on Instagram of himself wearing a gray sweatshirt with the words, "NOT ROBERT." But in case you don't recognize him and have a burning desire to know who he really is, he has his Limp Bizkit logo emblazoned across his sleeves to remind you.

Earlier this month, the AP proved that they, too, had a tough time keeping their Dursts straight. When Robert Durst was charged on March 16 for the 2000 murder of his close friend Susan Berman, the AP identified him as "former Limp Bizkit frontman" before quickly issuing a correction. Whoops!

But what they got wrong (which we can't really blame them) is that Fred Durst is in fact the current frontman of Limp Bizkit, and the band is alive and kicking. Maybe Fred Durst should milk this mix-up as much as he can because it sure made up think about the band for the first time since the '90s.
