The video for the band's hit song, "Bodies," starts off with original singer Dave Williams aggressively whispering "Let the bodies hit the floor" over and over at this helpless old man. He goes on to loudly and repeatedly grunt "Let the bodies hit the floor" at the poor fellow, although oddly, at no point do any bodies hit the floor.
In 2002, Williams passed away unexpectedly from a form of heart disease and was replaced by another guy who looked kind of like him and who was pretty good at whispering and grunting "Let the bodies hit the floor." But then that guy left, and like a butterfly emerging from a cocoon inside of a Hot Topic, Drowning Pool 2.0 was born.
The current singer doesn't look or sound like those other guys - he can sing sometimes - and according to the band's videos, he also doesn't harass old men, instead opting to take bubble baths with hot girls and talk about how if you want to step up, then you are going to get knocked down, presumably by him. So, you know, fair warning. Opening acts include Kyng, Burn Halo and Echoes the Fall.
