David Draiman: 8 songs that changed my life

Disturbed frontman David Draiman takes a deep dive into his record collection to reveal the songs that fuelled his rock star dreams

The Smiths – Please, Please, Please, Let Me Get What I Want (1984)

[Sings] 'Haven’t had a dream in a long time…' I love that song, I love The Smiths, and I love Morrisey’s voice and incredible wit and lyricism.

In my little clique, The Smiths kinda fell into the new wave category, and they were a comfortable fit for us. Can’t say I ever stuck any gladioli in my jeans pockets, but The Smiths were heroes to me.

Haven't posted on the forum in years.

Longtime watcher of mma, particularly the UFC, but never expected Morrissey and mixed martial arts to cross over.
Was shocked just now to see former Brazilian champion and combat sports legend José Aldo listening to Morrissey as he gets ready for his fight this weekend in Houston, TX. He even says he was "born in the wrong era," obviously wishing he grew up with our kid. Fantastic.

In the last section, Perry mentioned how Morrissey was supposed to headline in 2004 but Lollapalooza was canceled:

Honorable mention: Getting banned by Clear Channel in 2004

That was a really interesting one, because we actually jumpstarted Lolla the year before, when it was dead. Historically, the facts are that Morrissey was supposed to come in and perform after we restarted it. I had this great idea to go around the country at Clear Channel venues and do this thing called Bush in 30 Seconds, which is all about what a knucklehead Bush was because I was trying to help John Kerry get elected. So I had people like Rob Reiner, and they were gonna make these small vignettes about Bush in 30 Seconds. What I didn’t know, because I wasn’t so aware of politics, was that Clear Channel is very tight with the Republican Party. So they shut the whole damn thing down around the country and it wiped out Lollapalooza. But that year, Morrissey and the Pixies were set to...
