Disturbed Cover Songs

“It had been a name I have been contemplating for a band for years. It just seems to symbolize everything we were feeling at the time. The level of conformity that people are forced into was disturbing to us and we were just trying to push the envelope and the name just sorta made sense”

Disturbed Cover Songs | Top 10 Picks from this awesome band

The Sound Of Silence cover | Simon and Garfunkel

Watch the most popular Disturbed cover songs, their cool Sound of Silence version. The song is originally sung by the duo Simon and Garfunkel in 1965. We have heard different versions of this song. It is surprising to hear it this time from a metal band. And for sure you were waiting for the part where the band would be on to the screaming, crazy guitar riffs and heavy drumbeats. But this version is totally the ‘sound of silence’. It is sung as it originally is, mellow with the piano and orchestration, but climaxes with his raspy and powerful voice towards the end. This is one of the most beautiful versions we’ve heard.

Land Of Confusion | Genesis

Let us know what you think in the comments below!

Watch Land of Confusion in our list of the best Disturbed cover songs. They’ve definitely made this their own but just as good as the original. This version sounds like a perfect soundtrack for a superhero film. It should be played while the superhero is at it fighting villains and trying to save the world. This music video uses cartoons while the original music video by Genesis used caricature puppets. Both videos revolve around power and politics. In a deeper sense, the creator of the animation said it is “a big view of the corporate world and how it all ties into just one big beast for me… The world is run by one giant thing, which is driven by greed and lust”. Check out this video now!

Living After Midnight | Judas Priest

This 1970’s popular song Living After Midnight is one of the Disturbed cover songs. The sound may have changed a little from the original, from voice to instrumentals. The feeling while listening to this is nostalgic. It still feels like listening to a modernized metal music but thinking of the original band, Judas Priest, performing it. This is another interesting cover from this great band as we’ve never heard them play something some sort of classic rock n’ roll-ish rhythm. This band is really versatile and this cover is really awesome!

Baba O’ Riley | The Who

Watch this video of Baba O’ Riley as one of the best Disturbed cover songs. We were already fans of this cool band, now we just became super fans. If anyone asks who wants more, we’re raising our hands. This video was only a clip of an awesome performance and it leaves us hanging and wanting for more. We love the fact that the band is adapting to new music styles because David Draiman can definitely sing anything!

I Still Haven’t Found What I’m Looking For | U2

The list just gets more interesting as we add “I Still Haven’t Found What I’m Looking For” in the best Disturbed cover songs. Released in 1987, the song is originally by the famous Irish rock band U2. Having influences of gospel music, this song also sounds really good in metal. This band’s ultimate talent to perform any song like their own is amazing. As they pay respect to the greatest rock and metal bands through their covers, we also give our highest respect to this band who never fails to give us great music.

Shout | Tears for Fears

We can never skip “Shout” by Tears for Fears in the list of Disturbed cover songs. This was released in 2000 under the band’s debut album The Sickness. Lyrically, as composers Roland Orzabal and Ian Stanly said, the song is about political protest. This band’s version just emphasizes the strong emotions of the song with Draiman’s voice and singing style. Listen to this band’s awesome version now!

Fade to Black live | Metallica

Watch Disturbed cover song for “Fade to Black”. The song was the first power ballad by Metallica in 1984. This song’s lyrics is about suicidal feeling. Band members, vocalist/rhythm guitarist James Hetfield, and drummer Lars Ulrich were “obsessed with death” during the production of the song and the album. In this video, we love how it was more of the singing and a little less of the instrumentals. We love how the vocalist is passionate while he sings the song. Watch the video till the end!

Killing In the Name Of | Rage Against the Machine

Watch this live video of “Killing In the Name Of” in our list of Disturbed cover songs. This band really knows how to set the energy. The song itself, gradually climaxing also sets the enthusiasm of the audience. This is a protest song by Rage Against the Machine in 1992 and reflects the racial tensions that existed in the United States. Check out this video now!

Midlife Crisis | Faith No More

Another hit on our list of Disturbed cover songs is “Midlife Crisis”. This was a song originally by Faith No More in 1992. Disturbed’s cover remains almost faithful to the original version. This song was hitmaker in its time and this band’s version officially makes this song timeless. We love how Disturbed didn’t change much in the song, and they don’t need to because the song is great as it is. It is an emphasis of Disturbed’s respect to the band that has greatly influenced them.

Walk | Pantera

Watch another perfectly executed live performance in our Disturbed cover songs list. “Walk” is a song by Pantera in 1993. The message from Pantera’s members in writing this song was aimed at their friends who treated them differently, thinking that the rock-star thing had gone to their heads. We think this performance is awesome and David Draiman sang the song extremely well. Watch it until the end and you’ll agree!
