well considering the lead singer died, im assuming the band is no longer existant (at least under that name). honestly i dont know, but they clearly are not putting out any new music (if they are, it would be unrecognizable because they'd need a new lead). but they had two hits, one of em a big hit. i think things slowed down after 9/11, when radio had to get rid of 'let the bodies hit the floor' from their regular rotation. but there's many bands that sound like DP, and im sure there'll be plenty more to come

i know they came out with an album after his death called Desensitized...but it was a little while ago....the album was okay, but it just wasnt drowning pool....it would be great it they were to find a new lead, and keep the band alive even though it wont be the same....they still have opportunities to make awesome music..and i hope they can come up with stuff from their previous albums

Default drowning pool

i love the old drowning pool. sinner was a great album. all of the songs on it were amazing.

but honestly whos with me on this one, their new singer is horrible. i cant stand his voice and he gives a totally different sound to the band. i think they shoud have changed the name. the singers voice is one of, if not the most defining sound of a band and when a band changes singer, i think they should change the name as well.

A couple of years ago I liked that one song Let the Bodies Hit the Floor or whatever it's called. I haven't heard anything about them since then, or about their singer leaving.

dave williams didnt leave, he died, i think that their new singer is pretty good, and why would they change their name just b/c they got a new singer? its still drowning pool.
