"some music was meant to stay underground..."

Disturbed Guitarist Responds To DEP Statements

Last week, Australia's Beat magazine ran an article on New Jersey's Dillinger Escape Plan, in which guitarist Ben Weinman said he'd once witnessed one of Disturbed's soundchecks and that they were "practicing where they were going to walk and when they were going to put their leg up on the monitor and pose. That was weird for us. There are times where I don't even know where I am."

Disturbed guitarist Dan Donegan responded to Weinman's statements in an interivew with MTV.com. "I never even remember meeting these guys, and I think we know anybody that's even in the room during our soundchecks, so that's shocking to me, because I would think that we would have met them if they were standing there during our soundcheck," Donegan said. "That's funny. When we do a bigger production, there may be certain lighting cues for certain highlights of the show, but I wouldn't call it 'posing,' just a cue for our lighting guy, so he can add more drama to the set. If [Dillinger] sold some records, and were at the level we're at, maybe they'd see that, for bands like Kiss and Metallica, there are certain highlight points during a set that you want to focus on. If I'm going to go over to one spot and do a guitar solo, my lighting guy may need to know that, so he can focus in on that.

"If that's posing, then so be it," the guitarist continued. "To me, I don't think we talk about when we're going to put our foot up on a monitor. That's just silly. It's a natural thing we do. Those guys can say whatever they want. If that's supposed to be a jab at us, am I offended? I don't give a shit. If they're saying it because they're haters, why? Because we sell millions of records and lots of tickets? It sounds more like jealousy to me."

Just because you sell a trillion records doesn't mean you're better than anyone. The soundtrack to Love Story sold millions and that was the crappiest crap ever. Plus, Britney Spears, Linkin Park, Clay Aiken, Jessica Simpson, Lil Jon, T-Pain, Usher, Hannah Montana, R. Kelly, Jewel, Kevin Federline, Chris Brown, 50 Cent, and goddamned KENNY G have all sold more records than Disturbed, and, despite my disliking for Disturbed, I don't think any of those acts are better than them. Like I said, there's a line between sacrificing yourself to your art, and sacrificing your art for your wallet, and everybody BUT Disturbed knows which side they're on. I don't give a shxt if Dillinger sold 6 copies of ANY of their albums. Their WORST release is better than Disturbed's best in any shade of light. Dillinger's music makes me feel like battery acid is pumping through my veins. Disturbed's music makes me feel like I just sat on a tub of warm Jell-O.

And, the fact that this renob cites ticket sales and record sales numbers shows over Dillinger's is silly. It's like he's saying "Hey, we've legitimately WHORED ourselves to everybody with a checking account and our label won't stop selling our music to everyone ( i.e. Movie soundtracks, WWE compilations ) so we're, OBVIOUSLY, the better band."

Pretentious is the NICEST way to say it.

Hey Crawford, with the exception of Linkin Park, you're talking about a whole different genre. Of course those artists are going to sell more since they're completely mainsteam pop, rap, or R&B and getting constant radio & television play. Yes, Disturbed is mainsteam rock/metal/whatever you want to put them in, but they're not as much in the "know" as these mentioned artists. And for the record, Kevin Federline hasn't sold sh**. Last I heard he was around 5,000 sold. So no, he has not sold more than them. He actually came to the Chicago House of Blues and they had to give tickets away because no one was buying them. Disturbed were able to sell it out for three days in a row 2 years ago during and on Thanksgiving weekend. I'm not defending Disturbed, I'm just pointing out a flawed statement.

I agree that it's totally different genres but that doesn't matter. If he talkand act like a diva like fxcking Lindsey Lohan then he deserves to be lumped in with them. The difference in genres is completely irrelevant. So saying you pointed out a flawed statement is incorrect since nobody said anything about genres. The only thing he can say they have over DEP is sales, and the reason he said that is that's all that Disturbed has over DEP. The way he responded is the way fxcking Beyonce would have. He plainly says "...if Dillinger were at the level we're at..." Don't defend a f***ing idiot.

But, if you want me to stick to the genre that Disturbed is in, I'll cite Slipknot, System of a Down, Avenged Sevenfold, Korn, Stone Sour, 311, etc...I could go on and on...

Disturbed sells out shows because spoiled 12-16 year old hot topic GOTHS come in throngs to see them. Disturbed's crowd wouldn't survive a DEP show. There'd be crushed 15 year old girls all over the place.

Too bad noone in Disturbed is anything that I would include in the subset of "men". DEP is just subtly making sure everybody knows that Dist. are posing whores, because DEP actually understands the Metal fanbase and what they respect. So in response, Dist. starts "a media-fight" like a despicable Hollywood celebrity would. What they don't understand is that now, DEP has no need to do any sh**alking to make Disturbed look bad; Disturbed has done it all by themselves. So in the end, they are not only mainstream whores, but also stupid.

I didn't know Disturbed had more than one album...all of their songs sound alike. I listen to them, but it's kind of a guilty pleasure.

Really, the DEP guitarist wasn't being too nasty when he initially said what he said. It was subtle, but he didn't come straight out and attack like the Disturbed guy did. Just because you sell a lot of tickets/albums doesn't mean you're better than anyone else. Individuality in mainstream music is sorely lacking these days, and popular music isn't a great litmus test for quality.

As both a Metal singer/screamer myself, as well as a casual bass player, when me and my band play, it's all about spontaneatity (just because I can't spell it doesn't mean i don't know what it is lol) Even the creative process, from placement of double-bass down to entire song lyrics, come from a spur of the moment sort of emotional ferocity. When we play for people, the raw emotions in the material we do are expressed in our performance. Taking that into account, it just seems that Disturbed is showing their true colors; they make cookie-cutter pop Metal to get as many fans(aka money) as possible, and their live shows are apparently a reflection of that. Sure, I have a few of their songs, but it's all downloaded off limewire, so no money goes to them from my pocket.

Oh, and btw:

Sounds to me like culture shock on DEP's part...Nothing is really premeditated at DEP show beyond the playlist. For them to be watching Disturbed peacock around like nu-metal David Lee Roths has to be otherworldly.

Dillinger live...watch the singer at the 10 second mark. Hilarious. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r-lxwlgyhhA

Disturbed sort of live with a studio track over live performance....They edit the "MOMMY YOUR HURTING ME!" rant which is of course the really --cool-- part. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a2S-QNDzfNQ

We're looking at two polar opposite specimens....If you hate one or the other it's a matter of taste...but don't let something like that stop the name calling and condescending "my view/taste is superior" sh**, as seen from me--S'fun!

you sell more records but you're still in quite possibly the sh**tiest band on the f***ing planet.

Dear mr.disturbed guitarist: i hope you f***ing read my comment and i just want you to know you are the hugest pretentious asshat iv ever heard of.
to disturbed fans: clean the c** out of your ears and get a reality check: what you see on headgivers ball is not necessarily metal(save hate eternal haha). HGB is like the TRL of metal. You get every stinking pile of sh** band and like 2 good bands but by the time the band you watch for comes on you're already asleep cuz demon hunter sucks so much c***.

david draiman sounds like a bleating mangoat and every album the band makes sounds like 1 huge 45 minute long song because they suck too much to put any diversity into their music.

Craig wrote: I'm so tired of you pricks who think just because a band makes it that they are mainstream.
-this is not so. Most bands who make it big are complete sh** this day and age because the music industry is a f***ing joke. Disturd is a prime example because like i said, they fail to make their music interesting in any aspect at all. Sure they write the one song that everyone LOVVESS and buys the album for but thats about it. The average disturbed fan is probably 15 and full of angst and all that other sh**, kind of like a korn or slipknot fan(seeing a pattern yet??)

I totally agree with i_like_disturbed - half you people are that type of music fan who only like underground bands because you think it makes you cool. Whenever you see a successful band you cry your eyes out saying they are untalented or whatever, just grow up for f***s sake. 'but they sold out' Oh shut up, why? because they're successful? Maybe they're successful for a reason, like they're actually good, or they put work into making themselves successful? No but of course all your underground bands are ten times more talented and make better music because nobody's heard of them, so they must be good, right? Yea that makes sense doesn't it!

dark_funeral: I have no idea what headgivers ball is, I'm guessing it's an american thing (assuming you're american), but have you ever thought some people might actually like disturbed?

I have found some great bands watching HBB...I don't watch it anymore, though, because it has become sh1t..and Jamey Jasta left. He was a fukkin' cool host. Listen, if Disturbed's new album sucks A$$...I will be the first one to post on here...how much it sucks.. I also read Metal Edge...which sucks now...and Metal Maniacs..that magazine is just OUT there..but a good resource, none the less.

"Disturbed rules! F*** all of you who say other wise. F*** all your bull**** nobodys ever heard of Death bands. There is more to metal than F******* palm mutes and no talent lead singers. If you would open your f****** ears once and a while and not wait on your turn to speak you just might hear a message. Bitc***"

I thought palm mutes and dolphin noises are why people like Disturbed. Or is it the lyrical genius of David Draiman, who pens such awe inspiring lines such as "Now that you've woken up the demon ... in me?". Could it also be the amazing 3 note riffs that fill every song, the same riffs that earned Disturbed the right to the title of 97th worst riff of all time for their classic "Down With the Sickness"?

You know, DIsturbed makes some good songs, but man, they are so bloody arrogant.."I need certain lighting for my guitar solo cause I sell millions of records" with a statements near these, I BELIEVE that these pretenious snots WOULD figure out when to put their hoofs on a monitor to look "cool" on stage.

I liked these guys for years and finally got to do a meet and greet (it was more of a meet and get the f*** out) session 2 years back. They wouldn't pose for pics with the fans--I asked for one with David Drainman and gave me a look like "As if I would? and I tried to take a pic of the band members signing my cd, one of their a$$hole security guards tried to knock my camera out of my hands..I've met BIGGER band than these guys and never got such snotty treatment.They mention KISS and METALLICA are if DISTURBED is in their relm-well, not in the way DISTURBED treats their fans!!

These guys better watch it...their new stuff is mediocre and getting repeaticious. Soon, they may have to play clubs again--and if they still act like snots then, too. I say pack it up cuase you won't last much longer!!

Makes you wonder about those DAT tape backup rumours, too on stage!

Well, I have never really like Disturbed ever. I find their music to get repetitive and boring on more than one occasion. However, at the same time. I just looked up DEP for the first time, and I have to say, I was horrified. There singers shrieks resembled native or foreign language.Maybe its because it was a live set, who knows. I'm trying not to take sides with anyone here. But before I start, Txmetalhead stfu. You rambled on calling people out about there comments through 5 whole posts. All the while, not making any opinion of your own, rather just borrowing from previous post and adding a little txmetalhead to give it that extra bleh. Give it a rest, Disturbed is past their prime and DEP may never have one. Both bands don't deserve the publicity they are getting right now if they are both PMSing at one another through the media.

I totally agree with i_like_disturbed - half you people are that type of music fan who only like underground bands because you think it makes you cool. Whenever you see a successful band you cry your eyes out saying they are untalented or whatever, just grow up for f***s sake. 'but they sold out' Oh shut up, why? because they're successful? Maybe they're successful for a reason, like they're actually good, or they put work into making themselves successful? No but of course all your underground bands are ten times more talented and make better music because nobody's heard of them, so they must be good, right? Yea that makes sense doesn't it!

dark_funeral: I have no idea what headgivers ball is, I'm guessing it's an american thing (assuming you're american), but have you ever thought some people might actually like disturbed? Shock horror, I know, but not everyone likes the same stuff as you, wouldn't it be boring if they did, 'cos then that would mean your precious bands have sold out, right?!


1)disturbed is successful because they cater to the highest common denominator of "metalheads" out there. (surprise?)
1a){SPOILER ALERT}Disturbed are not metal and will never come close(i hope noones extremely surprised)
2)Sold out indeed-using slipknot as an example who basically fall into the same genre of sh** that disturbed fall into-when your band has shoes and skateboards with your logo on them, its time to f***in' quit.
3)in fact i dont listen to that many underground bands, but every band i listen to is better then disurbed. sorry.
4)Have you ever heard of Death? they sh** all over disturbed and they're not even around anymore.

Next, personal insults please, after telling me i have no life you in fact are the one calling me names over the internetz and hurting my cyber feelings you cyber bully )sad face(
1)headgivers ball was a play on words, im surprised you havnt heard of headbangers ball but whatever, i guess you're from across the pond and maybe HBB isnt aired there?
2)lots of people like what i like-p***y weed and GOOD MUSIC!

and the moral of the story is, moaning bastard is quite beat. for disturbed, tour bus flip.

I know A LOT of their songs sound similiar, they're arrogant, etc. but that doesnt mean u should bash on a band other people like and u dont. I don't like disturbed anymore than u do but i don't tell people what people should and shoudlnt like.

Just because I band is considered "mainstream" doesn't mean they aren't any good. I am so sick and tired of hearing people whine and cry about a band not sounding they way they used to and going "mainstream". I like all types and genres of metal music including disturbed. Maybe if you some of you weren't so damn close minded you would enjoy music a lot better. I could give two sh**s if a band doesn't do solos. Don't get me wrong I love them as much as the next person but just because they don't do them doesn't make them sh**. And by the way Disturbed has a few solos in their new album so you can stop with that crap right now. If you don't like the music then it's a real simple fix........turn it off rather than b**** and moan about how a band isn't good.

Disturbed suck pure and simple. How do you know we are close minded. Just because we don't like bands that you do it does not make a person close minded. My favorite stuff is Public Enemy, 4 Dead, Mindsnare, Slayer, Carpathian ect. Very wide range of styles there.

that's why I said maybe if some of you weren't so close minded. I know not everybody is close minded that doesn't like them. One of my best friends has a certain style of metal that he likes and he refuses to open his ears to anything and except the fact that it might be good. There have been so many bands that I when I first heard them I thought it didn't sound too great but after listening to more and more of there stuff I actually liked them. Great example for me is that I am not a fan of death metal growlers ala Six Feet Under, yet I still own 2 of their CD's cause I like some of the songs.
