The alt-metal band Drowning Pool faced a tragic setback when singer Dave Williams suddenly died of heart failure in 2002, shortly after the band broke through with their best-known single, "Bodies," from their 2001 album, Sinner. After recruiting Jason Jones as a replacement, the band adopted a new persona, trading their macabre, sinister metal style for a sexually charged one on 2004's Desensitized. Sales fell with this new direction, which led them to revert back to their former image and eventually hire Ryan McCombs of Soil as their new singer. Their 2010 self-titled album led to their fourth Ozzfest appearance last year.
