Congrats to Disturbed, as their classic song 'Stupify' bested Papa Roach's 'Last Resort' in a tight match of 2000 singles in the Classic Cage Match. The heavy driving guitar from Dan Donegan and rhythmically lyrical vocal delivery of David Draiman on 'Stupify' still stands up well over a decade since its release. The song will now advance to face another massive song from 2000.
