Basically the best part of a song. Usually found in genres such as Death metal, Grindcore and Trash Metal. This part of the song usually incorporates the guitar player hammering on a single note in a heavy pattern, sometimes along with the bass and the snare drum.
"Holy shit dude.. did you see Born of Osiris last night?"

"Fuck yeah man.. the breakdown in Open arms to Damnation was fucking insane!!"

They are a sad excuse for music, they usually sound terrible and it seems like bands have contests to make the slowest one. They are the least heavy part of the song camouflaged into being the heaviest part, when you play heavy or brutal, you are usually playing fast, hitting a cord and having the drummer play slow as shit is boring, slow music is boring...
some "hardcore" kid: hey brahsky did you check that new blood for blood song, it has got a song where all it is, is a breakdown!

me: that sounds like the lamest shit I've ever heard in my life.

If you have a large amount(a brick) of almost any drug you break it down to 20, 10, and maybe 5 sacks. Then you cell it on the street.
Yo we gotta break down before we hit the block.
