Disturbed 'Land Of Confusion' Video Available Online

The video for DISTURBED's cover of the GENESIS hit "Land Of Confusion", directed by renowned comic artist Todd McFarlane, has been posted online at Music.AOL.com. The memorable GENESIS clip used eerie puppets to poke fun at figures such as Ronald Reagan, and DISTURBED singer David Draiman told Launch that the song's political content made a new version timely. "I think that that was part of the impetus of recording it," he said. "Danny (Donegan, guitarist) actually came up with the idea of trying it. I wasn't really all for it in the beginning. I'm not a huge PHIL COLLINS fan. But I couldn't deny that the lyrical content of the song made sense and definitely fit the type of lyrical directions that I go in."

I'm not as big a fan of Disturbed as I used to be, but I will say this: I enjoy the fact that their cover-song choices always come from waaaaay left-field. As opposed to the usual choices for a hard rock/metal band to cover, like Pantera, Motorhead, or Metallica, Disturbed pick choices like Genesis and Tears For Fears. Makes for very interesting interpretations.
But unfortunately, their latest release was a tad bland, and "DamnItAllToHell" is pretty much right, there was a hell of a lot of sameness to it. But whatever, it's all cool.

Unfortunately this is not so much a good choice as it is hanging on to a fad of nu-metal bands picking bad 80s songs to cover. It's been going on since nu-metal started and apparently continues after its death.

The only good songs disturbed has ever had on an album are the cover songs. All the rest are the same song only slightly altered. Stupid new metal. Theres nothing new about new metal. Dropped d tuning and stupid lyrics. An ape could learn "down with the sickness." Posers. Tears for fears was more "metal" than disturbed and they knew it.

I am an avid Disturbed admirer, who has seen this video more than once. Some people may look less deep into the video than they should,
but hey, to each his own. I am here to make sure the entertained people of Metal know, that Disturbed has gotten more hate for speaking out
the way they do best, and so freely, opposed to any other band out there so far. Why entertained people feel the need to down right disrespect
Disturbed is beyond me. But it has gotten way to out of hand, and by far surpasses old. So to those haters of Disturbed, know what you're
talking about, before spilling so much unnecessary hate. They aren't "nu-metal", which is only a cosmic part of the younger generation today.
Disturbed brings to you, a new generation of Metal, which most young bucks could never comprehend, let alone grasp with mind-filled
intelligence. So again, I stress, know what you're talking about, before running off at the mouth. This video kicks ass! Speaks powerful
volumes, many people of the world should try and consider. Before killing the messenger, open your mind's eye to what is going on in
the world. Just as Genesis tried to do in the '80's...when most of you were still in diapers. Peace, love, and respect. MUCH RESPECT TO DISTURBED!

I'll admit I like the video. I liked the Genesis video better though. I wasnt in diapers in the 80's, I was in diapers in the early 70's. I have heard alot of music over the years and if people like disturbed, then ok. In MY opinion they suck. Different strokes for different folks I guess. I hope they get better. Maybe one day they'll learn more than 4 chords and play a song that doesnt sound like the rest of their catalog. Being a musician myself and having made an ok living at it for sometime now, I feel that I do know what I'm talking about when I say that most disturbed songs sound the same and they are mostly easy to play. Just tune down to "drop D" and bang around the 1st-3rd frets. What AMAZING talent this must take. I find it disturbing that these guys get paid to play at all. I guess all it takes is a couple of chords and wine about how crappy life sucks and you can get a record deal. Disturbed is a good band for some people. Not for me. If you like Disturbed, then I'm glad. Its a good video. Its a good song. Its nice to hear them playing something different, I wish them the best of luck and hope they put an album out that I can get into. I'm just not that big of a fan thus far. And I can run off at the mouth anytime I feel good and damn ready. Sorry if Ive disturbed anyone or made to many disturbing comments about one of metals most disturbing bands. I guess I'm just old and stuck in my ways. I long for metal. Real die-hard metal. But do check out the video and get down with the sickness.

1. Land of Confusion is NOT the cover song, the cover is TEN THOUSAND FISTS. PAY ATTENTION if you were in a war zone you'd be DEAD. 2. Disturbed is a LIVING LEGEND if you cant handle it then do us all a favor and SHUT THE **** up.
