The most recent band in existence to be so kick-ass that their records are 55-minute-long orgasms.

A band that created a unique sound by combining armenian and middle eastern elements with heavy metal. People accuse them of just screaming because they're too illiterate to read their lyrics or try to interpit them. Shallow preps hate them because their image is not as flashy as that of a rapper or pop star. Some hate them just because they're afaird listening to "unpopular" music would set them apart from the crowd. One of the few good metal bands in an industry poluted by nu-metal clones.
Me: Have you heard System of A Down?

Wigger: Fuck no, I don't listen ta dat shit, all they does scream about shit dat don't mean shit.

Me: Really, Have you tried to read their lyrics or interpit them?

Wigger: Read? Wut da fuck?! I don't read any shit! And wut da fuck does 'interaypit' mean?!

Okay, people with strong opinions here, I respect that, but some are just a bit too fucking intense. If you'd like my opinion, (Undoubtabley if you're reading this,) here it is.

SOAD is unique. They are definitely in the top 10 bands out there, due to their intelligent, deep, political lyrics, blended with amazing vocals, and excellent guitars. I highly recommend the song "Toxicity" to start out with, just as an experimental taste, and if you DO like them, get the albums. Me, I hope they continue to tell the truth about america in their deep, philisophical melodies. (They've been around since '95, too, just is anyone wanted to know.)
Guy: Hey, did you get Toxicity?
Chick: Yeah, it kicked ass, where can I get some more?

Why is System of a Down such a good band? Let me count the ways...

1.) All of their band members are awesome at what they do. Daron is renowned for his creativity with the guitar, Shavo is a great bassist who is very entertaining to watch, John is as fast and talented a drummer as anyone out there you can name, and Serj speaks for himself, with one of the coolest voices in metal music.

2.) SOAD doesn't rely on corny "extras" that nu-metal is known for, like turn tables, goofy sound effects and bad attempts at rapping. Their success is owed solely to their talent.

3.) They're not angsty like most nu-metal bands, and they don't whine about how depressed they are or how they feel like they're going insane... if you want that BS, listen to Slipknot and Linkin Park. The subject matter of System's music is abstract and spans many topics and issues.

4.) They have a sense of humor and innovation. Some of their songs are simply weird and funny. They're definately not afraid to do something different, and it works for them.
System of a Down is so much better than other nu-metalers that it makes people wonder if they could even be called nu-metal.

Listen, I'm a death metal kid, and I even have to agree that yes, System of a Down kicks ass. To all you pop-poser assholes out there, kill yourself. Lets summarize what we have learned, shall we? System of a Down is a good band even to some death-heads, and all pop-fags deserve to die. End of discussion.
"Did you see that pop idiot at the SOAD concert last night?"
"Yes, but I killed him without mercy."
