metal band (yes, they are metal) known for singing about politics, though they sing about a lot of other stuff too. some of their songs do not have a definate meaning and are open for interpretation. some of them might be about nothing. system takes a lot of heat for singing about the war and the problems in america, when a lot of other bands do the same (and only to follow suit on the trend that hating America has become). SOAD is a band with convictions, talent and honest beliefs that they share with their fans in their songs, and they are generally well-liked. usually the only people who are offended by system of a down are rednecks and overzealous conservatives.
I love system of a down and own all of their albums.

An unfortunate band who's had their most mediocre songs become hits, yet have their best work go unnoticed and make everyone think that they suck because of the mediocre songs. Many of their good songs, such as boom point out true flaws in the system, unlike such pathetic bands as Simple Plan and Good Charlotte.
System of a Down has had some unfortunate hits, such as lonely day and hypnotize, yet some of their best works like sugar and war? have gone unnoticed thanks to the media.

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.

the best metal band you can found out there, with a distinct sound un-matched by anything ever.
That System of a Down concert was the best thing ever, it's a shame they don't go on tour more often

One of the few nu-metal bands that never really seems to get dissed, probably because they're actually good. They have 3 albums: a self-titled album, "Toxicity", and "Steal This Album!". All 3 are orgasmically good. Their news albums, "Mesmerize" and "Hynotize" are due out in '05.
System of a Down has brought a glimmer of intelligence and talent to nu-metal.
