If you had the unique displeasure of growing up in the late 90s/early 2000s, you'll remember how important some shit was, like Furbys and the triple threat of the Fresh Prince, the Simpsons and Buffy being on TV around dinnertime. Nu-metal was one of those vital components, a scene which boasted the grooves of Korn and System Of A Down, the self-loathing theatrics of Slipknot and the frat boy fun of Limp Bizkit. Up there among them was Chicago's Disturbed, a band fronted by a bald man with chin-wrapping facial piercings you'd still be hard pressed to find today. Singer David Draiman's vocals ranged from 'oh-ah-ah-ah-ah' animalistic screeches to soaring melodic highs, the unarguably the band's greatest asset. Having come off break, the band are back with another album and chose to promote it with this performance on Conan O'Brien's show. It's strangely sincere, doesn't dip into a breakdown or anything.
