Disturbed Vs. Dillinger Escape Plan: The Crankiness Continues

It all started when Dillinger Escape Plan guitarist Ben Weinman mocked Disturbed's sound check, claiming the body-modification champions were "practicing where they were going to walk and when they were going to put their leg up on the monitor and pose." Disturbed has since responded, saying a) all they do is make sure the guitarist is under the spotlight for his big solo and b) how the hell did some dillweed punk guitarist get into the room during their sound check anyway? Sez the happy dude pictured to the left: "It's called production — it's what any big professional band that isn't just punk rock... Not to say that there is anything wrong with punk rock, because I have my roots in it, but you can't compare the two styles of a show." But Weinman isn't buying it.




First Disturbed guitarist Dan Donegan protested to MTV (a little too much) that he didn't give a shit about these punkers:

"When we do a bigger production, there may be certain lighting cues for certain highlights of the show, but I wouldn't call it 'posing,' just a cue for our lighting guy, so he can add more drama to the set. If [Dillinger] sold some records, and were at the level we're at, maybe they'd see that, for bands like Kiss and Metallica, there are certain highlight points during a set that you want to focus on. If I'm going to go over to one spot and do a guitar solo, my lighting guy may need to know that, so he can focus in on that.

If that's posing, then so be it. To me, I don't think we talk about when we're going to put our foot up on a monitor. That's just silly. It's a natural thing we do. Those guys can say whatever they want. If that's supposed to be a jab at us, am I offended? I don't give a shit. If they're saying it because they're haters, why? Because we sell millions of records and lots of tickets? It sounds more like jealousy to me."

Then Weinman made fun of Donegan on Myspace for giving a shit:

The guitar player Dom Deluise or whatever his name is with the little peen complex from that band Disturbia or whatever they're called thinks that we care about them. Old news, but still funny. Check it. "My Ferrari is better than your Honda!!! Our stages come apart and travel with us and yours don't!!! We have thirty guitar techs and you have one!". Coooool self esteem barometer douchebag. Wait...what's that I hear? The sound of your band still sucking? Oh, right. Gotcha there, bud.

Now Draiman's trying to bring the peace on Rockline:

The Dillinger Escape Plan are more punk and I respect them for what they do — I'm not even calling them out on any level, in any way shape or form. I like the style of what they do. I don't understand what the hell they think they saw with us, but gentlemen, let me give you a little bit of education: This is what the big boys do who play stadium shows — they wanna worry about how the lights look that they spend so much money on."

The video for "Inside The Fire," from Disturbed's recently released Indestructible, opens with a suicide prevention spot by Draiman, followed by a woman hanging herself in her apartment before Three Times One Minus One could make it a'ight. Instead, Draiman enters her apartment, drops his groceries and yells "no!" as he and the band pose for a while before covering themselves with her blood. Draiman puts a shotgun into his a mouth, only to appear straight-jacketed in a loony bin, as the suicide prevention number is shown again.

Inside The Fire
I have posted so much on this issue. One thing I don't get is that this all started over a little damage control on the part of Disturbed. DEP does things such as stage diving and fire breathing. Do you think they do any damage control for it? I'd call them either liars or dumb if they didn't.

And, I have to say it, we all know about the hostility between Finch and Disturbed. All I have to say is at least Finch had the testicular fortitude to stand up for themselves when confronted by Disturbed. They didn't tuck tail and run like the little bitch boy Weineman.

Dillinger Escape Plan is one of the worst bands I've ever heard to date. And how they fall under the punk genre is a mystery. They're just another one of those bands that start shit with bigger bands because their music isn't nearly good enough to get them the exposure and recognition that Disturbed has earned for themselves.

Oh guys, calm down. All they are trying to do is start trouble with a famous band to get attention drawn to their name. Disturbed is much more mature than that and all they need to do is step back and let the children have their whining moment and when they realize Disturbed aren't going to stoop to their baby level, they'll give up.
