Kickass BAND of the Week

Drowning Pool
I chose this band kickass bad, since I have been listening to them well forever but really alot since Rock Fest.
I love their newest song, "Feel Like I Do".

It goes something like this , "The love, the hate, regret, we all have it. Hey,  Hey. We all have it.  Raise your hands if you feel like I do, Scream it loud if you feel like I do.
Scream it loud, Like you do, like I do, Like we all do."

Doesn't that just get you all pumped up. WTF!
I don't see how this song wouldn't get everyone all fired up for a lame ass Monday morning at work.

Drowning Pool
is a four-piece heavy metal band that was formed in 1996 in Dallas, Texas.

They are currently signed to Eleven Seven Music and have released four albums, their most recent being their self titled album, Drowning Pool, which was released on April 27, 2010.

Each of their first three albums has featured a different lead singer. After original lead singer Dave Williams died, Jason Jones took over for their second album, Desensitized. When he left the band for personal reasons, he was replaced by former Soil lead singer Ryan McCombs for Full Circle.

McCombs then returned to sing on their fourth album Drowning Pool. The band played in Crüe Fest 2: The White Trash Circus in the Summer of 2009.

Drowning Pool rose to fame while playing along with Ozzy Osbourne during an Ozzfest tour. Their 2001 debut album, Sinner, was certified platinum within six months, and the video for its first single "Bodies" was widely aired on various music video channels.

After the September 11th attacks, radio stations pulled "Bodies" because there were concerns regarding its content in light of the 9/11 victims who had jumped from the towers.

On August 14, 2002, the band's lead singer Dave Williams was found dead inside his tour bus,  he suffered from a form of heart disease.
