A freaking awesome band. Their lyrics dont make sense half of the time unless u think about them. Their political views are great as everyone has stated, but nobody gave an example. The lyrics to "Prison Song" are incredibly true.
"All research and sucsessful drug policys show that treatment should be increased!
And law enforcement decreased while abolishing, mandatory, minimum sentences!
Utilizing drugs to pay for secret wars around the world, drugs are now ur global policy now u plice the globe!
Drug money is used to rig elections and train brutal corporate sponsor dictators around the world!"
Let's get right to the point. Even though every single one of them are going to hell, their music is the BEST. Heavy metal band that is enjoyed by EVERYONE. The screaming and heavy instrument playing is simple amazing.
DUDE, SYSTEM OF A DOWN ROX MA SOX!!!
Descriptions of albums
Self Titled - Freaking awesome lyrics and VERY heavy.
Toxicity - More political.
Steal this Album - Lose the screaming...but still have some good songs. They get soft in a few songs, though.
Hey, System of a Down r00lz, u should SO listen to their Self titled Album.
A band that created a unique sound by combining armenian and middle eastern elements with heavy metal. People accuse them of just screaming because they're too illiterate to read their lyrics or try to interpit them. Shallow preps hate them because their image is not as flashy as that of a rapper or pop star. Some hate them just because they're afaird listening to "unpopular" music would set them apart from the crowd. One of the few good metal bands in an industry poluted by nu-metal clones.
Me: Have you heard System of A Down?
Wigger: Fuck no, I don't listen ta dat shit, all they does scream about shit dat don't mean shit.
Me: Really, Have you tried to read their lyrics or interpit them?
Wigger: Read? Wut da fuck?! I don't read any shit! And wut da fuck does 'interaypit' mean?!
a politically correct band with some fucking unique talent
no example needed, just check out thier albums toxicity and steal this album
The most recent band in existence to be so kick-ass that their records are 55-minute-long orgasms.
"I like SOAD," said Dave one day while he was out kicking the shit out of zombie scum.
the most bad ass band ever. A lot of people call them sell outs but theyre just ass holes that think that whatever they dont like is selling out. theyre the fucking opposite of sellouts. they do charity tours for crimes against humanity. u wanna see sellout just look up my definition for metallica.
system of a down is a bad as rock band
Okay, people with strong opinions here, I respect that, but some are just a bit too fucking intense. If you'd like my opinion, (Undoubtabley if you're reading this,) here it is.
SOAD is unique. They are definitely in the top 10 bands out there, due to their intelligent, deep, political lyrics, blended with amazing vocals, and excellent guitars. I highly recommend the song "Toxicity" to start out with, just as an experimental taste, and if you DO like them, get the albums. Me, I hope they continue to tell the truth about america in their deep, philisophical melodies. (They've been around since '95, too, just is anyone wanted to know.)
Guy: Hey, did you get Toxicity?
Chick: Yeah, it kicked ass, where can I get some more?
Listen, I'm a death metal kid, and I even have to agree that yes, System of a Down kicks ass. To all you pop-poser assholes out there, kill yourself. Lets summarize what we have learned, shall we? System of a Down is a good band even to some death-heads, and all pop-fags deserve to die. End of discussion.
"Did you see that pop idiot at the SOAD concert last night?"
"Yes, but I killed him without mercy."
System of A Down is a very unique alternative metal band from Armenia. They mix strong political beliefs into their often unintelligible lyrics. All of the members have a unique style of playing their instruments, and Serj Tankien has one of the most unusual voices in popular music today. Who cares if they're pop. If they make good music, it shouldn't matter. The Beatles were pop, but they are one of the most influential bands ever. Oh, and by the way... the person who said that they use Drop-D
is only half right. They play in Drop-D tuning one whole step down.
None that I can think of.
