Disturbed has helped talk show host Conan O’Brien reach an online milestone.
A clip of the band’s performance of “The Sound of Silence,” which they performed on the March 28th, 2016 episode of “Conan,” has garnered more than 100 million views — a first for a “Conan” video.
Commenting on the achievement on Twitter, O’Brien wrote, “Disturbed’s cover of ‘The Sound of Silence’ is the first clip to crack 100 million views on my YouTube channel. I always knew that heavy metal band covers of Simon & Garfunkel songs would be my legacy.”
Is the “milestone” tainted by the fact that it took nearly four years to reach it? What’s your favorite rock cover song?
