Nu-metal is dead, but the balls-to-the-wall chorus of Drowning Pool’s “Bodies” will live on forever. In case you can’t remember, it goes something like this: “LET THE BODIES HIT THE FLOOR! LET THE BODIES HIT THE FLOOR! LET THE BODIES HIT THE AAARGH!”

With those five words (six if “the” is counted twice, seven if you count “aaargh”), nu-metal was finished as a genre. What could Mudvayne or Limp Bizkit possibly add? Had he ever read Shakespeare (unlikely), Fred Durst may well have paraphrased Macbeth: “From this instant / there’s nothing serious in mortality: / All is but toys: renown and grace is dead; / The wine of nu-metal is drawn.”

With that said, here is a video of Lolita the Parrot singing Drowning Pool’s “Bodies.” Credit for this brilliant find goes to Paste.
