What Simon & Garfunkel song did nu-metal band Disturbed cover?




Sound of Silence

Ooo wah ah ah! Wait, different song and different style.




For its cover of Simon & Garfunkel’s “The Sound of Silence,” the band took a softer approach. Despite mixed reviews from fans of both music groups, the cover went on to earn a Grammy nomination. While the sound is a departure from the hard-hitting music common for Disturbed, frontman David Draiman felt at home with a gentler approach, having trained to be a cantor when he was young.

“The Sound of Silence”, originally “The Sounds of Silence”, is a song by the American music duo Simon & Garfunkel. The song was written by Paul Simon over a period of several months in 1963 and 1964. A studio audition led to the duo signing a record deal with Columbia Records, and the song was recorded in March 1964 at Columbia Studios in New York City for inclusion on their debut album, Wednesday Morning, 3 A.M..
