9 Disturbed Disturbed Disturbed is an American heavy 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" .

I couldn't decide between Disturbed and System of a Down. I chose Disturbed because they are great musicians, of course, not the greatest of all time, but still great musicians. The only reason I did not vote for System of a Down is I was not sure if they counted, as their debut album was released in 1998. So come on Disturbed ones, Vote!
