A band that, in reading most of the definions on this site, is extremely overrated by many people. Yeah sure, I'll admit that they may be the best Nu-metal band, but that's not really saying much, is it??? I mean, sure they do have a few good songs (I actually do like Prayer and Remember), but they can't compare to other real metal bands, and they're definitely not the best band of all time, as some people on this board would claim. No no, the distinction of the greatest band of all time would go to, of course, Alice in Chains, followed closely by Pantera and Rage Against the Machine, but now I'm getting off subject. Anyway, to sum up what I'm trying to say, Disturbed may be good nu-metal, if there is such a thing, but in the end they are definitely not the best band of all time and are squashed like bugs on the windshields of Metallica, Megadeth, Soundgarden, etc. etc.
Nu metal fan: OMG! I love Disturbed, David is soooo hawt and their songs are so awesome!! I am Down with the Sickness!!! Wa ah ah ah, they're so metal!!

Me: Wow, please listen to some real music, such as Pantera or RATM. I'd like to see the guitarist from Disturbed shred like Dimebag or Tom Morello.

A fuckin' awesome band.
Hey, has anyone noticed the average IQ of the Disturbed haters? I know, what IQ? I mean, they are almost like George W. Bush.

Respectable nu-metal. Bands like Disturbed and SOAD are nu-metal's last glimmer of hope, unfortunately.
Disturbed is more impressive than Slipknot and (sigh...) Linkin Park.

Arguablly one of the greatest bands of the nu metal genre and possibly the greatest metal band ever. With Draimans razor-sharp vocals and the bands savage guitar sounds and meaningfull lyrics that range anywhere from the torment of the soul to ripping some one a new asshole, or the ignorance of people and their constant tendency to limit their selves beyond anything that will cause them any discomfort, challenge their views, or force them to actually think at all; to just the surge surge of adrenaline you get when you rock out and mosh to to something really violent, heavy and truly kick ass. That which is what the metal genre has been built on. Any one who thinks that Disturbed's lyrics are old, tiresome, and trivial forget that TRUE metal is not based on lyrics alone, that TRUE metal is a mix of hard hitting, savage, almost maleviolent and completly awesome guitar sounds;a lead singer who has the ability to put raw, razor-sharp vocals into every lyric sung; and the bands ability to make this all sound natural and smooth. Any one who judges a band soully on it's lyrics and how greatlly written they are should be impaled on a giant, burning spike Vlad style. Disturbed represents all these quallitys and is with out a doubt one of the greatest bands ever. Also people who think Disturbed sold out and became wuss-ified in the belive albums are ignorants pricks not being able to see beyond their bloody dicks from jerking it to much and the fact that just because something is not mindlessy violent does not mean it is not kick-ass metal. word is bond bitches.
plates on ur ass bitch!!PLATES ON UR ASS!!!!= mindlessy violen= kick-ass

get up come on get down with the sickness!!=anthem of rockers,goths and punks every where

i'm not willing to die girl because of what u dont tell me, i'm not willing to compromise the man i want to be!=full of meaning and not wussified you ass pricks

A kickass Nu-metal band. Nu-metal being a subtype of the Metal genre. Disturbed is about the best Nu-metal has to offer.
Disturbed is > j00.

Nu-Metal style musical group with actually musical ability and a decent amount of originality within style context, not dependent on any one style or subject for music. A good nu-metal group...yes i said it i used "good" and "Nu-metal" in the same sentance...
Disturbed did a cover of a friggin ace of base song....and it didn't suck....wow...
