(TeamRock Radio) Disturbed's David Draiman says he thinks some music fans have become genre snobs. The frontman reflects on the success of their cover of Simon & Garfunkel's The Sound Of Silence - which earned them chart success on both sides of the Atlantic earlier this year.

When asked how he feels about seeing the song do well, Draiman tells Q103: "It feels great. Everyone and anyone is welcome to come on board. Music is meant to cross boundaries.

"I think that people have become genre snobs. Many people have eclectic tastes. Many people like to listen to all kinds of different music. I mean, I do - I'll listen to many different styles inside a day, a week, a month, a year. It doesn't matter. So why not?"

He adds: "Sometimes it depends on what your mood is, what you're gonna end up wanting to hear. And I think that we're in some great company. There is some incredible talent at the format. So I'm very, very proud of it." Watch the full interview here.
