World Trade Center
Although the video and the song refer to a vehicle, otherwise “borrowed” from Ben Stiller and Stephen Dorff, Rollin’ does not only take place in the streets of Manhattan. The towers of the former World Trade Center also play a role in the video illustrating the piece.
It is at the top of the south tower that Fred Durst and his companions perform their memorable show. In more ways than one. Shot in September 2000, the Rollin’ clip is unanimously appreciated. The song even appears in the credits of the movie Fast and Furious.
On September 6, 2001, at the MTV Video Music Awards, the clip was awarded the prize for best rock video. On September 10, the group receives a letter and a fruit basket from the New York Port Authority to thank them for inserting the Twin Towers in their award-winning video. What happened next is unfortunately known for these two buildings that were once an integral part of the New York skyline.
Rollin’ reached number 1 in the charts in Scotland and Ireland.
As a testimony to the immense tragedy of September 11, 2001, two cascading pools mark the locations of the twin towers of the World Trade Center and each bears the names of those who died in the attack.
A museum is dedicated to it and preserves in particular the American flag present on the scene at the time of the attack, as well as the Survivors’ Staircase, the only structure that did not collapse on the site of the attack.
