I Love System of a Down

    Their Music Is Therapeutic

    I must confess, I love Serj Tankian. I have even made T-shirts That has his sexy face on them.. I have never felt this way about someone famous or anyone for that matter. His voice takes me away from the pain and the stress of life. My favorite times are inbetween work and home...

    The Band That Can Do Anything

    The first time I herd anything SOAD was when I bought Rock Band 2.  Chop Suey will always be my favorite song in that game, next to Give it Away.  I really love how they can change tempos in a snap, like in BYOB.  At the end it goes from happy, club music to balls...

    System Kicks ***

    System of a Down is my favorite band. Nothing else even compares to them. I wish they hadn't gone on hiatus but Serj's solo album was pretty sweet. I can't wait to hear from Scars on Broadway and see what they're like. Still, it would be nice if they got back together.

    They're Simply Amazing.

    It was a couple summers ago that I found System of a Down, and this band later became my passion.  It was one of the toughest summer's of my life, dealing with parental issues, and an elongated custody battle.  Besides that, the band gave me a sense of 'home'. ...

    I Nearly Cried

    I was extremely upset when I discovered SOAD was going on "Hiatus". Why must all the amazing bands breakup? Why couldn't they work out their creative differences, if only for the music? I mean, "Hypnotize", "Lonely Day", "B.Y.O.B.", "...

    Don't Have the New Album...

    But I heard some songs.. I like the older work more, somehow.. f.ex. Aerials: Life is a waterfall We’re one in the river And one again after the fall Swimming through the void We hear the word We lose ourselves But we find it all.... Cause we are the ones that want...

    Realization!

    SOAD is always on my mind, if I am feeling low or high. SOAD has songs to suit all kinds of mood. I first watched Chop-Suey when I was 17 and shockingly rated it 6 out of 10. I found it difficult to get the lyrics. Once I started listening to it repeatedly I realized how amazing...

    What Makes Soad Special?

    First of all SOAD is pure rock and no ****. Their lyrics are about how the world is doing the wrong things by going into war and not caring about the poor.The alternative music which goes slow at the start and suddenly the beats go up is the best part. Chop Suey is my favorite...

    Hell Yes

    I actually saw them live a couple of nights ago along with Deftones. Completely amazing.  I got there like two hours early and the person I was with and I tried guessing what the opening song would be.  I said "Prison Song" would be a great opener just because of how it starts...

    Yea Some Songs Now

    I use to like a lot of songs from them, but I realize that some of the songs is about hopeless christ falling, angels falling, I'm sorry but I just have to change tracks that haves nothing to do with it. But I still roll with their band.

    All-time Favourite Band...

    I got into SOAD by sheer chance. I was shopping for new CDs, and I picked up their first album. It looked interesting so I bought it, and I loved it. A few months later, Toxicity came out and and I became addicted. I haven't regretted any single second I have spent listening...
