Terry Stevens, WOZZ: Single: Disturbed - "The Sound of Silence" When you compare what was happening in our country when Simon & Garfunkel first released that song with what happened this year, it's no surprise that this would be a hit again.

It's Chuck D from Public Enemy, B-Real from Cypress Hill and the instrumental portion of Rage Against the Machine. There's no way this was going to suck! #MakeAmericaRageAgain.
