And if that was the case, it's not like a band breaking up will mean that their music will automatically stopped being played or talked about. I can understand hating a band or ripping on them because you think they suck (I've done my fair share), but how is a band you hate breaking up really changing anything?
As far as this indefinite hiatus...meh. I'm a Disturbed fan, but maybe a break for a few years will allow them to mix up their sound a little bit. They've basically been doing the same stuff for 3 albums now, and their live show has become so bland and predictable, everything from the setlists to David's in-between song banter to the videos being used on their video screens, etc.
To me, it truly makes no difference. I don't care.
I just get a reprieve from being asked "DO YOU LIKE DISTURBED???" when I say I like metal. I'm fine with it being some other retardedly bad band, but it just always is Disturbed.
