Turn So Cold

Album: Drowning Pool (2010)

Songfacts®:

  • This is the second single from Texan four-piece hard rock band Drowning Pool's self-titled fourth studio album. Bassist Stevie Benton spoke to FMQB about the track. Said Benton: "It's really just your typical dude/chick song. It's a theme that guys have been writing songs about for years and years. It's just about a chick that's being a bitch, to put it bluntly. It's about giving and giving and giving to someone just to have them take and take and take, and then turn their back on you."
  • The song's music video shows the band standing inside a room made of ice. Benton told FMQB there were no special effects, the quartet really were surrounded by ice. He explained: "It's a place with a warehouse where they make, store and distribute ice. I didn't even know this was a business, but apparently it is! So we're in the warehouse and it's like 13 degrees in there, and to top it off, a friend of the director was standing off camera with a chainsaw, digging into blocks of ice and shooting it up in our faces. Our hair got wet and covered with ice, and that made the 13 degrees feel even colder! I'm not a fan of the cold weather at all. I live in Texas. I like it 100 degrees!"
