Taylor also called out the NFL for misrepresenting rock and metal at the major sporting event.
Taylor shared an article from Loudwire about Draiman’s campaign to get himself votes to perform the pre-show song. Disturbed shared a poll from Billboard and encouraged people to vote for the musician.
“I’ve dreamt of doing it my entire life. Been rehearsing it since I was a little boy,” Draiman said to Loudwire. “I love my country, and I would be honored beyond words to have the opportunity to try and inspire, strengthen, and give hope, at a time when we need those things more than ever. Plus…it would be nice to have rock represented on SOME level at the Super Bowl, and to prove to everyone that there ARE rock singers out there who can do the anthem as much justice as ANY pop artists out there, and even possibly take it higher.”
Along with sharing the article, Taylor wrote that it’s “long overdue for rock and metal to be represented at the Super Bowl.”
“Let’s make our voices heard in support of our brother David Draiman of @Disturbed and let the @nfl know we want him to sing the anthem,” he continued. You can see his posts below.

The Billboard poll is filled with various pop acts including artists like Brendon Urie, Post Malone, Ariana Grande, Bruno Mars and more. The band are encouraging fans to write in Draiman’s name in the given space.
