I first heard the song Stricken on the radio when Fists first came out. i loved the song but didn't know anything about the band. Then i heard Down with the sickness and decided i needed to get more of Disturbed's songs and albums. So i got the sickness, believe and 10000 fists but it wasn't until i got over my exgirlfriend (long sad story there) that i really started to use Disturbed's music for strength and power. i used my anger and frustration and focused it on my goals. I used to be home-schooled actually, but got out of that and hit public school, which was rough but i made out ok. now i run track, i make honor roll and i owe a lot of it to Disturbed. this music has inspired me, made me see what i could do and helped give me the extra push i needed to get there. thanks Disturbed and all the fans that made it one of the most popular bands out there.
