American hard rock band
There are 2 bands by this name: 1. Drowning Pool is a heavy metal/nu metal band from Dallas, Texas formed in 1997 that rose to prominence while playing along with Ozzy Osbourne during Ozzfest. Their 2001 debut album, Sinner, was certified platinum within six months and the video for its first single "Bodies" was frequently aired on various music video channels. After the September 11th attacks the song "Bodies" was infrequently heard on many radio stations due to the sensitivity of those families' loved ones who jumped from the towers. In August 2002 the lead singer of the band, Dave Williams, died in his tour bus of heart failure.

Although simplistic, these lyrics are about the most annoying matter of "HE told me that, I'm telling YOU, although not being sure if that's exactly what HE meant, so I could be misleading YOU".....broken telephone phenomenon. So what has Drowning Pool to say about that? SHUT UP!
So many lyrics like these here, wandering around in the lyrical universe, while I would like to take this opportunity to declare that the king of them is "if ignorance is a bliss, then knock the smile off my face" by RATM. Why do I compare RATM and Drowning Pool's Follow? Not much in it, except the certainity that RATM was for sure among DP influences, the entire nu-metal genre as well...
