* OneHitWonder: Two songs actually did better than "Bodies," but well after MemeticMutation set in on it, so it's safe to say that "Bodies" is what they're known for.

If you've spent time on the internet, you may have come across a song featuring the verse "[--Let the bodies hit the floor, let the bodies hit the floor, let the bodies hit the--] [+'''FLOOOOOOOOOOORRRRRRRRRRR'''!!!+]. Well, that was these guys.

DrowningPool is a four-piece [[strike:NuMetal]] HardRock / AlternativeMetal band from Dallas, Texas. Formed in 1996, the founding members were vocalist Dave Williams, guitarist CJ Pierce, bassist Stevie Benton and drummer Mike Luce. To date, they have released three albums.

If you've spent time on the internet, you may have come across a song featuring the verse "[--let the bodies hit the floor let the bodies hit the floor let the bodies hit the--] [+FLOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOR!!!+]. Well, that was these guys.

Dave Williams died in his sleep on his tour bus in 2002. The autopsy results revealed that he had cardiomyopathy, a heart disease. He was initially replaced by Jason Jones, who left in 2003 to be replaced by Ryan [=McCombs=]. [=McCombs=], in turn, left in 2011 for a reformation of his old band Soil.

Drowning Pool is one of a very, very small number of groups in any genre to a) continue after the death of a singer and b) continue on with not one, but two replacement singers, which means [[TheBandMinusTheFace a different vocalist for each of their first three albums.]]
