DISTURBED’s “Sound Of Silence” Video Notches Up 1 Billion Views On YouTube

Disturbed's amazing cover of the Simon & Garfunkel song 'Sound Of Silence' has now amassed over one billion views on YouTube.

The song appears on Disturbed's 2015 album Immortalized.

Their cover hit number one on the Billboard Hard Rock Digital Songs and Mainstream Rock charts, and is their highest-charting song on the Hot 100, peaking at number 42.

In April 2016, Paul Simon endorsed the cover. Additionally, on April 1st, Simon sent frontman David Draiman an email praising Disturbed's performance of the rendition on American talk show Conan. Simon wrote:

"Really powerful performance on Conan the other day. First time I'd seen you do it live. Nice. Thanks."

Draiman responded:

"Mr. Simon, I am honored beyond words. We only hoped to pay homage and honor to the brilliance of one of the greatest songwriters of all time. Your compliment means the world to me/us and we are eternally grateful."

Also just recently, Aerosmith's 'I Don't Want To Miss A Thing' surpassed the 1 billion streams mark on Spotify.
