A well-known American heavy metal band had some choice words for police all over the country, last week.
Disturbed has released six studio albums, 5 of which were No. 1 on the Billboard 200.
In the wake of the killing of 5 Dallas police officers, the Chicago based band took to the stage in Mansfield, MA with a message for their fans. The message? All Lives Matter.
Just before their concert in Mansfield, members of the band were honored by the city’s police for their support of men and women in blue.
After being honored, the band’s lead singer, David Draiman, shared an epic message with the crowd:
“Our boys in blue, put their lives on the line for us every single day. Every single life on the face of this f-cking earth matters, do you understand me?”
Thousands of fans roared their approval.
On July 20th, Disturbed posted a link to their Facebook page with a news story about North Richland Hills Police Department (NRHPD) in Texas. The department created a Blue Lives Matter video from Disturbed’s hit cover of Simon and Garfunkel’s “The Sound of Silence” earlier in the year. News media just picked it up this month.
North Richland Hills Police responded.
Here’s the moving, Blue Lives Matter video created by NRHPD.
Having played in hard rock bands (and still playing), it’s awesome to see members of an uber-famous one show their respect for our men & women in blue. A lot of times this isn’t the case (See Beyonce).
Hats off to the members of Disturbed for their awesome show of solidarity with our police. Like Giuliani said during the RNC, “Cops don’t ask if you’re black or white when they come to save you, they just come to save you.”
Share if you think this is pretty cool.
