"Stupify" is a song by the heavy metal band Disturbed. The song was released on April 12, 2000 as a single from their debut album, The Sickness. It peaked at number-twelve on the United States Mainstream Rock Tracks chart and number-ten on the United States Modern Rock Tracks chart.[1] The song was also used in an English adaptation of the Dragon Ball Z movie Lord Slug, and remixed for the movie Little Nicky as "Stupify (Fu's Forbidden Little Nicky Remix)".

Meaning

The song is against racism and discrimination. The song is about a relationship Disturbed's vocalist David Draiman was in with a Latina girl. He said her family didn't approve of him because of his different ethnicity.[2]

Music video

The video for the song features the band performing the song in a rusted cellar-like room, intercut with footage of a young boy sitting in the same room. As the song progresses, the boy is revealed to be haunted by ghost-like images. David Draiman said that the boy represents his inner child and also said, "This inner child has been damaged in such a way that the world he sees around him is dark and frightening and marred by life experience. It's haunted by specters and ghosts from the past."[2]
