Nu metal floor-filler Down With The Sickness gets mashed up with a cat, because The Internet

When a TikTok user requests that a familiar-sounding kitten replace Disturbed’s iconic Down With The Sickness intro, the results are quite magnificent



Every so often, the stranger side of the internet rears its head, resulting in absurd yet hilarious creations. Now, in a new viral TikTok, both those boxes have been ticked thanks to the platform’s quick-thinking users. Two worlds collide as metal and cat lovers of the web join forces to create this hilarious medley of Disturbed’s Down With The Sickness, featuring the calls of a hungry kitten.

What was once a simple, yet adorable, TikTok clip of an owner questioning her cat, Storky, on whether it’s time for supper, got a remix when user Jalen Amend (@the_jaybird379) highlighted that the meows mimicked David Draiman’s famous staccato in the intro of Disturbed’s nu-metal floor-filler Down With The Sickness. Calling out to the more tech-savvy Tik-tokkers, Jalen requested for the sounds to be mixed together.

“I know I don’t got a lot of followers,” he says, “but if someone could make that cat sound to Down With the Sickness – that ‘wah-ah-ah-ah’ – that’d be great. Tag me in it.”

His request was soon answered by Wyatt (@fly_wy) who excitedly accepted the challenge. “[I] fuckin’ like the way you think,” he says. “Consider it done.” He then re-shares the original video followed by footage of him tinkering away behind his laptop. On completion, Wyatt headbangs over a screenshot of the Disturbed’s The Sickness album. 

The mashup has even made its way onto Disturbed’s radar, who shared the video across their social media outlets. Check it out below.
