a great band who have entered the mainstream and yes, have a lot of retarded fans. probaly gay teenage goths and posers or people who have only heard aerials, chop suey and toxicity, but the vocals simply cannot be beat and each member has great songwriting skills and a unique musical style

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.
ME: 'pulls out pickaxe and sticks it in fucktards eyeball'

A good modern alt-metal band from armenia. songs are generally very catchy but with cryptic lyrics from a derranged mind.
System of a Down's next album is due late 2004-early 2005.

System of a Down

proper noun: Popular American musical act variously labeled as rock, hard rock, metal, or (rarely) punk. Most popular songs include, "Chop Suey" and "Toxicity"

*Footnote: Once labeled by Liam Gallagher of Oasis as the worst band in history. Love SOAD? Love Oasis? Hate em' all? Interpret as desired.

first off, there are way too many people saying how System of a Down "is crappy pop music" "lyric's make no sense" "overrated" Pop? are you kidding me? You cannot place the likes of Britney Spears and The Click Five with System of a Down. The lyrics are one of the reasons so many people love them. They are so abstract and SOAD lets you decifer what you think the song meaning should be. Someone quoted 'Cigaro' saying how the lyrics (My cock is much bigger than yours/My cock can walk right through the door) are stupid, but you don't even get the meaning. FYI, the song is about how everyone wants to have their stuff bigger and better than everyone elses'. Its mocking the American way: We have bigger weapons, bigger trucks, bigger food, etc. System of a Down is DEFINATLY not overrated. The music is incredible. Simple guitar riffs? Daron, the guitar player, is an incredibly talented person, as is everyone else in the band. All you metal-chomping shitheads who have this harder-core-than-thou attitude need to take a reality check. Just because they are famous, well-known, and are ont he radio doesn't lower the quality of the music. So what if they are popular? They DESERVE the fame-they're simply the best.
System of a Down, the first album is the best by far. Its their self-titled; BUY IT!!
