A "new/alternative" metal band from Chicago, with a lead singer, David Draimen, that is easily recognizable (due to the "tusks" that protrude from his lower lip). Some consider them hard rock, others metal. But the fact is Disturbed puts out great music during a time where the rock genre is incredibly shallow (I'm talking to you, scremo bands).

If you haven't heard much of Disturbed, here's a few of their best songs (IMO) by album.

The Sickness:
Down with the Sickness
Voices
Violent Fetish

Believe:
Remember
Rise
Prayer

Ten Thousand Fists:
Deify
Overburdened
Stricken
Sons of Plunder
"Man, I went to a Disturbed concert last night. I got beer spilled all over me, but it was fuckin' incredible! They sound the same live as they do in the studio!"

A newer Hard-Rock band and possibly the best anyone has seen or will see for a long time. They are one of the last glimmers of hope for the Hard-Rock genre after it was overcome by bandwagen following "Pussy-Pop-Shit-Rock" bands whom carelessly call themselves Hard-Rock (green day, my chemical romance, the used). The band is indeed heavy, and would be thought to be Metal, but the members of Disturbed prefer them be considered Hard-Rock. Unlike most new "Hard-Rock" bands, they don't whine about shit, but instead confront it using music with macabre riffs and and intence, meaningful lyrics. I challenge any "hater" or whatever the fuck you pussy's call yourselves to read just the lyrics of any Disturbed song and tell me that it has no meaning, and doesn't make you stop and think about the point Draiman is introducing (covers don't count, assholes).
David Draiman - Vocals
Dan Donegan - Guitar
Mike Wengren - Drums
John Moyer - Bass (replaced "Fuzz" in mid 2005)

The band which I tell Nu-Metal haters to listen to, because they rock so much.
Nu-Metal, in itself, is not that good, because people listen to the Nu-Metal bands that don't have any meaning whatsoever, such as Slipknot.

However, Disturbed, is one of the greatest Nu-Metal bands, indeed one of the greatest Metal bands in my opinion.

David Draimen (The Vocalist), has an extremely talented voice, it was as if he was born for Metal Vocalling, just listen to his opening in Down with the Sickness.

Also, Disturbed/Metal haters claim that songs have no meaning. They are wrong.

Here are just two examples:

Song: Forgiven
Album: Ten Thousand Fists.
Meaning: A soldier has just been killed in battle, but he has already forgivven his killer because he knows that he is next in line to be killed.

Song: Overburdened
Album: Ten Thousand Fists.
Meaning: A soldier, once again, has been banished to an overburdened Hell. However, he has no idea why he was there, as he was just following his leader, who's actions he thought to be just and correct.

In conclusion, I think Disturbed is the best Nu-Metal band out there, and, I think they could easily be up on the Podium with the likes of Iron Maiden and Metallica.

A rock band with hits such as "Down With The Sickness", "Stricken", "Guarded", "Just Stop", and "Remember", to name a few.
I'm a Disturbed fan. However, that doesn't mean I'm saying they're the best band in the world, or that other bands suck compared to them. I like them, that's it. If some people don't like them, that's fine, too. They won't "meet Satan 'cause they're goin' to hell 'cause they don't like Disturbed". Honestly, wasn't that remark a bit dumb? =/
