System of a Down vs. Drowning Pool – Classic Cage Match
Congrats to System of a Down, as ‘Chop Suey’ moves on to face another opponent in the Loudwire Classic Cage Match. The band’s frenetic single took out the previous champ — Linkin Park’s ‘In the End’ — and they’ll get a chance to defend their title against another hard-hitting track from 2001.
And speaking of hard-hitting, there weren’t many tracks that came at you as full blast in 2001 as Drowning Pool‘s ‘Bodies.’ The track, from the band’s debut disc ‘Sinner,’ truly catapulted the group into the minds of hard rock lovers. Sadly, frontman Dave Williams would die suddenly a year later from cardiomyopathy. While Drowning Pool still rock today, ‘Bodies’ remains their biggest hit.
So turn it up, rock it out and start your own one-man moshpit as you listen to both System of a Down’s ‘Chop Suey’ and Drowning Pool’s ‘Bodies’ in the players provided. Then vote for which track you want to advance to the next Loudwire Classic Cage Match in the poll below.
(This Classic Cage Match will run until Friday, Sept. 5, at 2PM ET. Fans can vote once per hour! So come back and vote often to make sure your favorite song wins!)
