Who originally sang the song “The Sound of Silence”?




Simon & Garfunkel




  • If you look up “The Sound of Silence” on Google, the first thing that comes up is an alternative rock band named Disturbed and even though their rendition of the classic rock song is pretty awesome, they definitely are not the first band to sing this song. Simon & Garfunkel recorded the song in 1964, before Disturbed frontman, David Draiman, was even born! Don’t worry, though, Paul Simon gave his seal of approval on the cover via Twitter calling it a “wonderful rendition” of the song. Source: Ultimate Classic Rock
