How can SOAD be pop? EMINEM is pop.
How can SOAD be Nu-metal? Linkin Park is (pussy) Nu-Metal
How can SOAD be punk?
SOAD is Pulp Fiction rock.

An alternative/experimental metal band with 4 current members that stayed together since and brought back great music into the mainstread. All the members of SOAD are of Armenian heritage and are grandsons of Armenian Genocide survivors.

Their lyrics are somewhat simple yet they have a deep meaning once you finally get the point to those songs (which are either very, VERY political or social).

A ton of people confuse System of a Down as a nu metal band because they happen to debut their first album when a bunch of new bands amerged in the same year and they have somewhat similar styles... although SOAD has disnounced that they are nu metal.

They are currently on hiatus.

Oh, and they are as pop music as Britney Spears is to metal... nice thinking, retards.
Memebers: Serj Tankian, Daron Malakian, Shavo Odadjian, John Dolmayan

Albums: System of a Down, Toxicity, Steal This Album!, Mezmerize, Hypnotize

okay, i am gettin really pissed off at all the people who are starting to dislike system because of BYOB...so listen up all you retards. This song stands for BRING YOUR OWN BOMB, i have heard countless people say that system is a sell out band because of that song, that song is fuckin amazing. I live for rap music, but system is the only band that i listen to that isn't rap (50 cent is gay, tony yayo is gay, lloyd banks is amazing, and Luda is the best). But if you ever actually read or listen to the lyrics of this kick-ass band you will understand the fucking meaning of their songsSo pretty much what I'm tryin to say to all you retards out there that hate system because you can't understand them is..........READ BETWEEN THE LINES FUCKTARDS!
fucktard: I don't like system of a down anymore because of BYOB.
