Violence Fetish

Album: The Sickness (2000)


  • This song is about our tendency to fool ourselves and innate volatile nature. It encourages us to release our inhibitions instead of holding them inside, where they will build up until they explode. The song reminds us that the world is already a violent place, and we must do what we can to deal with it. >>

  • Zero from Nowhere, NjI love this song. The Sickness is kind of an angry album, but that's what attracted me to them in the first place. (well that, and that they have a KILLER sound, that you can simultaneously headbang AND dance to!) It could also be about beating each other up in the moshpit.
  • Daniel from Winchester, OhAnother great Disturbed classic, well to me it is, I love this song!!!
