In 2010, DISTURBED celebrated the tenth anniversary of the release of “The Sickness” by reissuing it with exclusive b-sides and expanded artwork, as well as a first-time-ever vinyl edition.
Released on March 7, 2000, “The Sickness” is DISTURBED‘s best-selling album to date, thanks to such hit singles as “Stupify”, “Voices” and “Down With The Sickness”.
Guitarist Dan Donegan told The Pulse Of Radio that the band never expected “Down With The Sickness” or “The Sickness” to do as well as they did. “I think ‘Down With The Sickness’ was like the seventh most downloaded song that was recorded in the ’90s,” he said. “It was like in a list of like four Michael Jackson songs and NIRVANA‘s ‘Smells Like Teen Spirit’ and we were in the Top 10 of those songs. And I was just blown away by those statistics. Those are big numbers there. I mean, we’re just overwhelmed to think that we could go from a garage band in the south side of Chicago to selling a lot of albums and having a fan base and making a career out of it.”
Last September, DISTURBED‘s “No More” landed at position No. 1 on Billboard‘s Mainstream Rock Songs airplay chart. The track, which was the third single from the band’s 2018 album “Evolution”, marked DISTURBED‘s seventh straight No. 1 on the chart.
Each of DISTURBED‘s last seven singles has reached No. 1 on Mainstream Rock Songs, a feat unmatched by any artist.
DISTURBED has a total of 10 Mainstream Rock Songs No. 1s. THREE DAYS GRACE holds the record with 15 No. 1s, followed by SHINEDOWN at 14 and VAN HALEN with 13.
