Corey Taylor Supports Disturbed Frontman’s Bid to Sing at the NFL Half Time Show
Taylor thinks it’s “long overdue” for rock and metal to make a showing at the Super Bowl and showed support to Drainman. We had learned earlier this week that Disturbed singer David Drainman wants to sing the national anthem at the Superbowl. Taylor tweeted:
“It’s long overdue for rock and metal to be represented at the Super Bowl,” Taylor stated in support of the effort. “Let’s make our voices heard in support of our brother David Draiman of @Disturbed and let the @nfl know we want him to sing the anthem.Taylor also stated, “This needs to happen!”
Yesterday, Disturbed shared a recent Billboard poll asking who should sing the national anthem before the 2020 game. Panic! at the Disco songster Brendon Urie in currently in the lead of the fan vote, but Disturbed have encouraged fans to enter Draiman’s name into the online poll.
Draiman told Loudwire exclusively that such a patriotic performance is something he’s been dreaming about since he was a little kid.
“I’ve dreamt of doing it my entire life. Been rehearsing it since I was a little boy,” he said. “I love my country, and I would be honored beyond words to have the opportunity to try and inspire, strengthen, and give hope, at a time when we need those things more than ever.”
Draiman continued, “Plus…it would be nice to have rock represented on SOME level at the Super Bowl, and to prove to everyone that there ARE rock singers out there who can do the anthem as much justice as ANY pop artists out there, and even possibly take it higher.”
