both songs are for their generations only. phil collins had a huge messaege with his and was erie and just what he wanted. but disturbed didnt want that dreamland image with their song thats why tjhey took out the phaser in the guitar and added more distiortion. both bands had a message for the people epressed differently through the same song. genesis wanted people toawaken from this dream that America is perfect and that we needed to do something. now the audience that disturbed is trying to get through isdifferent people are already away and disturbed wants them to get the message clearly that we need to stand and not just let a facist world government tell us to bend over and take it!

What? The disturbed version is good, but that is only because they covered a truly amazing band, and a truly incredible song- and kept it very close. That is why disturbed sounds so good. Genesis made it perfect, you can only credit disturbed for copying them.

I just heard this song and was absolutely appalled. I am always a fan of covers, and quite often find the new versions to be better than the originals (ie: Johnny Cash's Hurt vs NiN's Hurt). But in this case I find myself wishing I had never heard this new version as it taints the song. Its almost as bad as when country singers cover rock songs... What were they thinking?

I LOVE the Disturbed version of the song, but it's not quite good enough to beat the original. And I don't see how people can get themselves to say so...

It's hard to believe that a band that makes it's living be "dark" couldn't "out-dark" a band like Genesis. I don't have a problem with the cover, but there is something very robotic, very sterile and cold about the original. I think if you remove the original version from your conceptions of Genesis as a band, you will see that this is a very powerful song, particularly given the circumstances in which it was written

While the Genesis version was a very strong sond with an even more powerful message, Disturbed pumped hard rock into its veins with a video with that has an unrivaled style. This is the king of covers.

I'm on the positive side with both. I was in college when Genesis version came out and me and my ex were kind of Collins/Genesis fans, though I was really a hard rocker at heart.

Even though I'm in my 40s, I still like new metal in a lot of cases. When I first heard this version in my car, I felt like pulling over and pumping my fists in the air. Definitely took a good song and made it even better. It's harder, but still faithful to the original. I like Disturbed's version very, very much.

Either way you slice it, the image that Phil portrayed in the original video was both entertaining and somewhat accurate... Disturbed hit the nail on the head with their video, on the current state of things, and possibly the near future.
