With "Land Of Confusion" Disturbed have found the right song for a cover. More power, more rock - better than the original.

I just heard the cover version on the radio and was blown away at what a good job they did; superior to the original

It's easy for a cover to be better than an original - especially a cover, for a song which was (originally) done so long ago. I believe that if roles were reversed - and if Disturbed had wrote this song originally - and if Phil C had covered this - I'd still like the Disturbed version better.

Yeah I have to agree that the cover is way better than the original.

Suprisngly melodic cover from Disturbed. Out of my roomates, I was the only one that could tell it was not just a live version of Genesis after a night of drinking and steroids. Voted for the cover.

The In Flames cover of this song was far superior to either of the versions above

I think that they both sound good, but what worried me the most was listening to a classic rock station, and hearing genesis's version of it. and thinking it was disturbed.

This song was an awesome, rockin' 80's song that was at the top of the charts for good reason. Disturbed didn't do a horrible version, but this was never meant to be a heavy metal song. Rock on, Genesis fans!!

This version of ''land of confusion'' is much more better than the original.
We can all respect to Phill Collins but DISTURBED played it like the song belongs to them !!!!!!

Fan of the original, but as a piece that needed to be done heavier. Disturbed sound a bit numetal on this, but it is still an improvement, voted for the cover.

Whichever one you vote for, just know that death metal band In Flames also covered the song in 2003 and totally butchered it, so either one of these is great by comparison.
