Disturbed is a band from Chicago, Illinois. It was formed in 1996 when musicians Dan Donegan, Steve "Fuzz" Kmak, and Mike Wengren hired singer David Draiman in Chicago, Illinois. Although generally regarded as part of the nu-metal genre by the industry, some fans and the band alike are of the opinion that Disturbed is actually a hard rock band. < DO NOT EDIT THE MUSIC CATEGORY INTO ANYTHING ELSE WITHOUT READING THE CORRESPONDING DISCUSSION ON THE DISCUSSION PAGE!! -->
In its early years, Disturbed recorded two separate demo EPs which it then sent out to different record companies. The band sent two to show the record companies that it was dedicated to its music and that the first EP wasn't a fluke. The band broke out in 1999 with its single "Stupify" and subsequent album The Sickness. The album launched the band into stardom. It also released a completely revamped cover version of "Stone Cold" Steve Austin's theme music for the WWE, called "Glass Shatters." After participating in Ozzy Osbourne's Ozzfest tour in 2001, the band started the Music as a Weapon Tour.
