Dallas nu-metal dudes Drowning Pool are returning to San Antonio for a show on Saturday, January 25.

Because, apparently, nothing says "2020" like music from the year 2000. And adding to the Hot Topic vibe, the show will be at Anthem Entertainment, a venue inside Rolling Oaks Mall.

All shade aside, Drowning Pool write some catchy tunes — surely you remember the "Let the bodies hit the floor" hook of their big single "Bodies."   And the band's working on a seventh studio album, of which show-goers may get a sneak peek.

Barely a year after "Bodies" became a 2001 mega-hit, then-frontman Dave Williams died of heart failure from an undiagnosed condition. Singer Jasen Moreno has been singing with the group since 2012.

One more fun fact: “Bodies” was used by interrogators at Guantanamo Bay. Apparently, the tune cycled over 10-day period in during the 2006 interrogations of suspected terrorist Mohamedou Ould Slahi while he was "exposed to variable lighting patterns."

Tickets ($28.50) are on sale now. For more information visit the official Facebook event page.
