Disturbed Lead Singer David Draiman, Taylor Swift

It's no secret Taylor Swift became even more of a massive superstar over the past year, eliciting passionate opinions from fans and naysayers alike. However, during a recent Disturbed concert, lead singer David Draiman sent a strong message to Swift's haters—and the entire exchange was caught on camera.

During a Jan. 19 concert in Peoria, Ill., Draiman brought two dads and their 12-year-old daughters onstage for a special moment shared via TikTok.

"So I take it that you came to the Disturbed concert, as opposed to the Taylor Swift concert, means that your parents are raising you on rock and roll," he said to the girls. "Hey, don't forget: Taylor Swift still kicks a—."

When some audience members booed, Draiman proceeded to expertly scold the haters.

"You know what? I will stand up and applaud any pop artist that gets up on stage and sings live and plays a guitar live in front of a whole group of [F-bomb]ing thousands of girls and guys, young fans," he said.

Draiman continued: "Don't talk s— about Taylor Swift. She is for real. And she's making sure that an entire generation of new music fans understand what it means to actually play music live."
