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.

Whoever plugged Violence Fetish as their best song is a sackless poon. Even if, within the song there are 215 other words, when not counting the repeated chorus (note that IT IS the chorus, and thus repeating it is legit) so labeling Violence Fetish as a repetitive song is foolish.

Also, lyrics are overrated and aren't a main component in the brilliant scheme of metal, so basing a band on it's lyrical ability is rather indecorous.

A more credible suggestion of their best written song, both lyrically and intstrumentally, would be ~Mistress~.
Knowing the story behind most of Disturbed's songs would assist in the understanding of their excellents also

Overrated metal band from Chicago. Dave Draiman is an asshole too.
The Chicago music scene had diarrhea and Disturbed came out. Now that's what the sickness really is about.

A band that i would like to think are good, but are sadly, crap. They Have great vocal and instrumental potential, but for one flaw, ALL THEIR SONGS ARE JUST THE SAME FEW WORDS REAPEATED OVER AND OVER untill any meaning they had is dead lost and spat on. and for all you people who dont belive me, just listen to 'violence fetish' which is plugged as their 'greatest song' for a perfect example of how repetitive they are.
im not saying nu metal is anything but meaningless and repetative, but disturbed exell in both of those feilds.

A mainstream nu-metal band with decent vocals, but medicore music and lyrics. Disturbed is popular with preteen boys that haven't discovered true metal music.
David Draimen of Disturbed has a lovely voice and interesting looks, but his band and writing abilities suck.

A band that was really great and promising and than just kinda faded.

The Sickness = Needed a little more focus but had a unique nu-metal sound that was awesome.

Believe = A little to "clean" but a great hard rock album.

Ten Thousand Fists = A pretty good album where some songs are great hard rock ie Land of Confusion and the rest all sound the same.

Indestructible = An ok album where ALL the songs sound the same. Guitar driven. The vocalist has run out of steam.
"Dude! That disturbed song 'Down with the Sickness' just convinced me to kill everybody!! But than 'The Night' made me change my mind."
