Disturbed came together through the matching of a band with a singer. Longtime friends Dan Donegan (guitar), Mike Wengren (drums), and Fuzz (bass) played together in Chicago for some time before hooking up with singer David Draiman around 1997. Draiman had grown up in a religious family against which he rebelled, being expelled from five boarding schools in his adolescence. His anger found an outlet in the thrashing sound of Disturbed, who built up a following on Chicago’s South Side before a demo tape led to their signing to Giant Records, which released their debut album, The Sickness, in March 2000. Disturbed gained more fans and exposure playing the main stage of the 2001 Ozzfest, then broke away to do their own self-described “victory lap” around the U.S. that fall. Also during this period, they managed to record a vicious new version of wrestler Steve Austin’s theme song that was so good it managed to receive radio play, and they were one of the bands announced to work on a high-profile Faith No More tribute album.

And thanks to Rebel Radio playing them long before breaking out into the industry as full-force as they did, Disturbed has since become a world-renown band, favored by fans of all genres.
Three Days Grace
Alternative Rock (Modern Rock) band from Asphodel-Norwood, Ontario (Canada). Starting out as the band Groundswell in 1992, they released one album in 1995 before dissolving and reforming as Three Days Grace in 1997. The band has since drawn a large audience in North America and Europe. Following the release of their 4th studio album Transit Of Venus lead singer Adam Gontier announced he would leave the band due to personal health concerns. The band then recruited Matt Walst as his replacement. (Source)
