WATCH:  Disturbed Joined By Lzzy Hale, Perform U2 Cover

Disturbed’s cover of “Sound Of Silence” is getting a lot of attention lately, but it’s not the only cover from the band.  On its last studio release (2010’s Asylum), Disturbed covered the U2 classic “I Still Haven’t Found What I’m Looking For,” and at the May 7th stop in Nashville, the band was joined by Lzzy Hale to perform that track.
