iGEN by Ted Volk
The Place Where Radio and Records come Together Without Talking
"SILENCE" DISTURBED
1/26/16

You would be forgiven if the thought of bringing together metal monsters Disturbed and Simon & Garfunkel sounds a tad jarring. But a new video of the Reprise/Warner Bros. band's version of "Sound of  Silence," which starts off hushed and finishes with a bang and a half, is making major noise online—and driving sales. The clip of the song (from Disturbed's Immortalized set) has amassed about 9.4m views; the track sold about 16.5k last week and has racked up 122k+ RTD.

Simon & Garfunkel appear to be having an interesting pop-cultural moment, as this version grabs hard-rock fans and the duo's "America" graces an emotional new campaign ad for Bernie Sanders. We await the EDM remix of "Me & Julio."
