To the wigger from New Zealand:

SOAD are who they are and they are not afraid to express themselves through their music. They're not goths, devil worshippers, or freaks, they are Armenians who combined musical influences to create a unique sound for their band. Many of their songs can actually be concerned poems because of metaphoric lyrics that can't be easily understood and need interpitation, While other songs are political with more easily understood lyrics. Political and metaphoric lyrics, don't you think that's kind of a lot compared to rap's "better lyrics" that usually don't go much deeper than "bling-bling" and "hoes".

Here's a short list of SOAD's musical influences:

Heavy Metal(obviously)
Armenian Folk
Hip Hop(Your music)
Punk Rock
Alternative Rock

No gothic or satanic influence, only ignorant fucks who barely get any exposure to non-pop or non-rap music would mistake them for goths or satanists.
SOAD hit songs includes:

Chop Suey
Prison Song

Anyone that says Syatem of A Down just scream shit cuz they cant read theyre own unintelligible lyrics is an asshole. SOAD is a unique, unclassifiable band that mixes an awsome drummer that goes as fast as anyone out there, a basist who was called one of the top ten basists of all time(the first of course from Metallica), A top 5 ranked gutarist, and a vocalist with one of the most unique, and versatile voices in music today. if someone asks you if you listen to system of a down, you say yes, and they hate you, they're just afraid to listen to something thats not cool, hip, or popular!!!
