Saturday Night

Album: Resilience (2012)

Songfacts®:

  • This is a track from Drowning Pool' s fifth album, their first to feature former The Suicide Hook singer Jasen Moreno. "The question I am most often asked is 'What' s life on tour like?' This song is my best description of a typical day on the road," the band' s bassist Stevie Benton told Noisecreep.
  • Guitarist C.J. Pierce noted to Billboard magazine that the song is one of "lighter moments" on Resilience. "It's more of a party song, which we've never really done before," he said. "People ask us what it's like to be on the road, and we say every night on the road is like Saturday night -- the doors open up, everyone's drinking and having fun, usually what you do on a weekend even if it's Wednesday or whatever. It's something new and different, but you look at, like, Led Zeppelin; they would bring some new style every time they made a record. And ('Saturday Night') is fun to play live, man. We go from that to 'let the bodies hit the floor' and it really gets people going."
  • The video was filmed in a couple of different seedy locations in downtown Dallas, Texas.
