Watch DISTURBED Perform CHIPMUNKS-Style Version Of 'Immortalized'

On January 10, DISTURBED warmed up for the Glasgow show on the band's current European tour by playing a fun ALVIN AND THE CHIPMUNKS-style version of "Immortalized", the title track of DISTURBED's chart-topping 2015 album. Check out video footage of the backstage performance below.

ALVIN AND THE CHIPMUNKS were an American animated music group created in 1958 by David Seville (the stage name for Ross Bagdasarian, Sr.) for a novelty record called "Witch Doctor". Seville later formed the fictional CHIPMUNKS musical group, and their characteristic high-pitched covers made Alvin, Simon and Theodore household names.

DISTURBED was the most played act of 2016 at the Active Rock radio format, according to industry metrics released by Mediabase, which monitors and analyzes airplay in over 180 U.S. and Canadian markets on both terrestrial and satellite radio. The band's success was bolstered by several chart-topping singles from "Immortalized", including its massive hit cover of SIMON & GARFUNKEL's classic "The Sound Of Silence".

The other No. 1 singles from Immortalized included "The Vengeful One", "The Light" and "Open Your Eyes".

In addition to being the most played artist, DISTURBED also had the second most played track at Active Rock with "The Sound Of Silence".

"The Sound Of Silence" was certified platinum last June for sales or downloads of more than one million copies, while "Immortalized", DISTURBED's fifth No. 1 album in a row, hit gold in September for 500,000 copies sold.
