"Disease" is the first single from Matchbox Twenty's third album, More Than You Think You Are. It was co-written by Matchbox Twenty lead singer Rob Thomas and The Rolling Stones frontman Mick Jagger. The song peaked at #29 on the Billboard Hot 100.

Music video

The video, directed by Phil Harder, starts with a man turning on his colorful boombox, then roller skating over a wide section of New York City, with some images on billboards of 1st Rob, then later the whole band (albeit on separate billboards). At the 2nd chorus, we see the band performing in what appears ironically enough to be a disco hall, complete with ball. They are surrounded by a crowd dancing along, and to begin the 3rd chorus, Rob slides off the stage on all fours onto the dance floor past the crowd. At the end of the song, the roller skater shuts off his beat box and then proceeds up some stairs, presumably to his home.
