No. 24: Disturbed, ‘The Sickness’ – Best Debut Hard Rock Albums

Disturbed, 'The Sickness'

Disturbed unleashed a powerful new voice in 2000 when their debut disc ‘The Sickness’ arrived in stores. Yes, the band had the energy and the attitude you would want from a hard rock outfit, but with singer David Draiman, there was a rhythmic delivery unlike most of the group’s peers.

First came the breakout single ‘Stupify,’ a catchy rocker that immediately reeled in fans, and they followed that up with ‘Down With the Sickness,’ a track that featured some unique-sounding animal noises from Draiman that differentiated it from anything else at radio. Add in ‘Voices,’ ‘The Game’ and a surprise cover of Tears for Fears’ ‘Shout,’ and ‘The Sickness’ proved to be one of the first standout albums of the 21st Century.
