"Drift & Die" is a song by Puddle of Mudd, released as the third single from their album Come Clean in 2001. The song previously appeared on their 1994 EP, Stuck, released as a single locally. Although less popular than the crossover hits "Blurry" and "She Hates Me", "Drift & Die" still receives regular airplay on rock radio stations today, as well as being the band's sixth best-selling single in the United States. The song spent six weeks at number one on the Billboard Hot Mainstream Rock Tracks chart during the summer of 2002. The song is featured on the Muchmusic compilation album, Big Shiny Tunes 7.
