2bitnogoodjive Posted January 11, 2011 Share Posted January 11, 2011 Drowning Pool have responded to reports linking their music to the recent shooting in Arizona, which left six people dead and congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords critically injured. Jared Loughner, the 22-year-old arrested for Saturday's attack, reportedly listed as a YouTube favorite an unofficial video featuring the band's 2001 single 'Bodies' and a masked man burning an American flag. In response to media reports speculating on a link between the clip and the shooting, a statement on the band's official website read: "We were devastated this weekend to learn of the tragic events that occurred in Arizona and that our music has been misinterpreted, again. "'Bodies' was written about the brotherhood of the mosh pit and the respect people have for each other in the pit. If you push others down, you have to pick them back up. It was never about violence. It's about a certain amount of respect and a code." It continued: "For someone to put out a video misinterpreting a song about a mosh pit as fuel for a violent act shows just how sick they really are. We support those who do what they can to keep America safe. "Our hearts go out to the victims and their families of this terrible tragedy." http://www.digitalspy.com/showbiz/news/a297242/drowning-pool-respond-to-arizona-shooting.html Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
