Feel Like I Do

by

Drowning Pool



Songfacts®:  You can leave comments about the song at the bottom of the page.

The track is the first single from Texan four-piece hard rock band Drowning Pool's self-titled fourth studio album.
Lead singer Ryan McCombs explained that the song reflects a tough period in his life during which he went through a divorce, moved out of his home and lost his father: "It was kind of feeling like everything was wrong and everything was crashing down and I was, I couldn't make a right move, and feeling swallowed up by everything. And then all of a sudden sitting back and going, 'But you know what? Who doesn't feel this way?' This was kind of that moment with this song that I went, 'You know what though? Woe is me, who cares about hearing about that. We all go through it."
Guitarist C.J. Pierce told Artist Direct about this anthemic song: "It's funny how that happened. When I first came up with the riff, we were on tour, and I really didn't think it was a song that would make the record. It's a fun song, it had a cool like groove to it, but I was like, 'Is this Drowning Pool or what is this?' Whenever we played it, everybody was in a good mood. From there, for whatever crazy reason, it moved to the front seat. It was one of the first tracks that we recorded in the studio and the first one that the label jumped on. So, with that being said, we set the bar really high where everything else that we did afterwards had to beat it. Since that was the first one, everything after that had to beat it. If you like 'Feel Like I Do,' you're going to love the rest of this record."
