When I first read the youtube title, I was a bit skeptical. Ok, a LOT skeptical. As much as it might pain me to say this, the Disturbed & Of Monsters and Men mashup is actually pretty cool.
Living in Southern California I’ve had MORE than my fair share of the alternative music scene. Every other radio station from L.A to San Diego is playing the same damn songs over and over. Hey, more power to ya. If that’s what the people want, give it to them.
Now, going back to my roots, I have also heard the song “Down With The Sickness”, and album from Disturbed more times than I could count. It’s probably one of my top 50 records of all time. So, when I heard than somebody did a mashup of “Little Talks” from Of Monsters and Men and “Down With The Sickness” from Disturbed, my heart sank a little. As it turns out, it actually not half bad. Have a listen for yourself.
