DISTURBED Singer Doesn't Care What GENESIS Thinks Of Cover Song

October 25, 2006

Launch Radio Networks reports: DISTURBED currently has a huge hit with its cover of the 1986 GENESIS track "Land of Confusion". Vocalist David Draiman says he's heard the members of GENESIS like the DISTURBED version, but also told Launch that he's not concerned about their opinion either way. "To be honest with you, I really don't care what they think," he said. "You know, I'm not trying to jab or anything, I'm just saying that I'm not a fan. I'm a fan of GENESIS prior to Phil Collins. I don't really like Phil. But, you know, he's probably gonna end up making some money off this track, so I don't know what else to really articulate about it that isn't gonna get my butt in trouble (laughs)."

"Land of Confusion" comes off DISTURBED's third album, "Ten Thousand Fists", which has sold over 1.2 million copies since its September 2005 release.

The band's third Music As A Weapon tour kicks off on November 15 in Providence, Rhode Island, with STONE SOUR, NONPOINT and FLYLEAF joining the headliners.

Music As A Weapon ends its first leg on December 22 in Madison, Wisconsin, with a second leg slated to begin early in 2007.
