Disturbed Critisized over X Factor Gig

Some fans were not all too happy about Disturb’s recent performance on Australia’s X Factor, calling the band a “sell out”. The band reacted to these comments on their Facebook page with the following message:


Considering many rock fans probably don’t support shows like X Factor and The Voice, the comments that were made about Disturbed are understandable. However, in my opinion I don’t see why people are complaining about a well documented performance. Let’s face it, X Factor is an extremely popular TV show where artists perform on a great stage with great sound quality.

Do you view Disturbs performance on X-Factor as a disservice to rock ‘n roll? Let us know in the comments below.
