A band with one of the most unique music styles ever, mixing Middle-Eastern and Armenian with Metal. Sometimes the music is calm, sometimes its angry and sometimes its crazy (like the song "Johnny"). Usually they scream a lot and then go calm, probably because their throats hurt.
There is meaning to System of a Down's lyrics, listen to "Boom!" and "Chic n' Stu" (though I doubt most of you droids couldn't interpret that song).

Blatantly un-Pop. Only ignorami would consider them to be Pop Music, and probably have only heard 2-3 of their songs (Chop Suey, Toxicity, Aerials).
Do what the title says and "Steal This Album," so you can listen to some real music.

A band whose musical influence hail from Armenia. Their lyrics are open to interpretation and speak of politics, religion and experiences. System of a Down's lyrics are subject to debate because they rely heavily on interpretation *1. As is their music, although the basic chords and repetitive nature contributes well towards emphasis and overall catchiness of the song *2. Their music cannot be easily categorised with "fellow" bands Slipknot and Korn. Despite popular belief, their music fluctuates from song to song, depending on the theme ("Mind" to "Roulette". They are atheists and on the whole against the way that the world is governed. Such popular songs include "Chop Suey" and "Toxicity." Their name derives from a poem called "Victims of a Down"

Serj Tankian - Vocals, keyboards
John Dolmayan - Drum
Daron Malakian - Guitar, vocals
Shavo Odadjian - Bass

All of whom descend from Armenia.

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!
DIE!
And law enforcement decreased while abolishing, mandatory, minimum sentences!
DIE!
(later)
Utilizing drugs to pay for secret wars around the world, drugs are now ur global policy now u plice the globe!
(later)
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.
