Yes, they have more than enough attention, Try to check out some underrated bands who got so much overshadowed because of these bands. - Ananya

Yes, A7X get more attention than they should. Metallica, Iron Maiden, Judas Priest, Slayer, A7X, Black Sabbath, Megadeth, Dream Treater etc. We are bound to it. How about checking some metal bands like Gwyllion, Fairyland, Leaves' Eyes, Artcell, De-Illumination, Skinflint, Ensiferum, Stratovarius, Executer or Beastwars. I know a lot of people haven't heard about these bands. But they play metal. Don't they? - zxm

2 Disturbed Disturbed Disturbed is an American nu metal/ alternative rock/ alternative metal band from Chicago, Illinois. The band comprises vocalist David Draiman, bassist John Moyer, guitarist Dan Donegan, and drummer Mike Wengren. They are known for songs like "Down With the Sickness" and "Stricken" .

To be honest, their songs are so similar to each other, I don't see much talent in them. - Ananya

It's not about who can go out and be the most technically talented its who can write the best songs. Disturbed consistently turn out great simple songs - maverick88

RE Nonpointed comment: they are NOT metal because their music isn't metal and not because it isn't heavy or loud. It's a very common misconception to think that if a song/band sounds heavy and loud, it's automatically metal. It's completely wrong. Experts of Encyclopedia Metallum did a detailed analysis of their music and concluded: NOT metal. - Metal_Treasure

Again debatble whether they are metal or not but they certainly have enough attention - christangrant

It is NOT debatable actually since more than 50% of their material is heavy enough to qualify as metal. That's the objective threshold. Only people who would say Disturbed isn't metal only listened to The Sound of Silence and that's it. In fact, that's where all their attention is centered, a stupid cover song. - Nonpointed

3 System Of A Down System Of A Down System of a Down formed in 1994 as an Armenian-American Alternative Metal group from Glendale, California. The band name is sometimes shortened to System or SOAD. more.

Another one that's debatble whither they are metal or not but id say they have enough attention - christangrant

I like them but I am sure they are NOT metal. Encyclopedia Metallum also concluded they aren't metal. - Metal_Treasure

Bull****, the only reason they get attention anyways is cause everyone is currently expecting their most recent album. But then when it comes out and all everyone will forget. Am I the only one who never hears any songs of theirs on the radio? - NuMetalManiak
