Limp Bizkit To Give Fans The Willy Wonka Treatment

Playing off of the "Chocolate Starfish" in the title of their upcoming album, the men of Limp Bizkit are planning to get all Willy Wonka with their fans.

According to its official Web site, the group is randomly inserting gold autographed CDs and laminates into the first pressing of its new album "Chocolate Starfish And The Hot Dog Flavored Water," which is due on October 17. Fans who find "golden tickets" in their copies of the album could win a Paul Reed Smith guitar or a Remo drumhead autographed by the band, while other lucky winners will snag lifetime backstage passes.

Limp devotees can get more info (or enter to win before the album hits stores) at limpbizkit.com.

Of course, not everyone can win, so the rest of Limp's fans will have to content themselves with the new album as well as the band's upcoming tour with Eminem, Papa Roach, and Xzibit (see "Limp

Bizkit, Eminem, Papa Roach Unveil Tour Dates"). That trek gets rolling on October 19, and here's here you can catch it:
