Woooow, whether you thought the video was shit or not, you gotta admit that the guy pointing a gas nozzle at his head to end the video is tacky and hysterical.
I remember seeing this. Pretty awesome!
You all are quite wrong. This song jumped to number one on the chart not because of Disturbed or because it's "for kids." I jumped to the top of the chart because instead of producing songs that their fans would like, Disturbed picked a song to capitalize on the oil spill that has been all over the news. The song does not bring environmental issues to the forefront of people's minds as they are already there for anyone who has seen even 15 second of the news over the past months.
It's a good business decision, but it's fucking shit for those who have been fans of the band and don't like to see them caring more for money than they've ever cared about the fans. It's more comparable to Green Day's American Idiot than anything I would expect to hear from Disturbed. Let me explain. The song has the same tailor-made radio edge, the lyrics are stunningly political, but they are also stunningly poorly written and have less than no poeticism (not that that's ever been a forte of David's or Green Day), they are then praised by much the majority who already held the opinion contained within them and elevated beyond the musicality of the song (which is incredibly poor). Now, I'm all for the environment and torn up about the oil spill in the gulf. This song might have been an important message to hear several years ago, but right now, it's just capitalizing on a crisis. I hate it for that reason and because the song is poorly synthesized and blatantly soulless. Feel free to comment on THAT.
you won't. Not unless "tomorrow" is meant as "over a month from now".....
