    System of a Down

    Hey therez. Any of you guys out there like System? I do.

    At first I didn't really like it and thought it was to heavy for me.. that was when I was into pop music and stupid rap. But one day I was sitting there studying with my sister and Bob Kayla and we were listening to BYOB, and I thought, wow.. this song has a lot of meaning.

    A lot of their songs do and that's why I like them. They're talking about a lot of world issues and there's a lot of toned down American trashing.. that part is kinda ify. Like, I thing the president should be thrown out, but blatantly bashing the guy isn't cool in the public media, it breeds hate.

    And the beats, my gosh. A lot of them are so catchy, the chorus part in Tentative is killer, same with 36. I'd have to say my favorite album is Steal this Album! but Mezmerize is really good too.

    It made me angry when they said that Mezmerize and Hyponotize were coming out as seperate intead of a double disc. The older songs are better than the new.. have any of you heard any of the unpublished one? They're on Storages Melodies I think, and a lot of them are really bad. Sugar on there is so horrible.. seriously terrid.

    My favorite songs are the Prison Song and Cigaro. Prison Song is just so true. And Cigaro.. it's a total f**k off song and that is cool in my books.

    But, to get to the point, if you like System, why? Any fav songs and stuff? And explain why or we'll all get in dooty.
    the love you withhold is the pain you carry.

    Re: System of a Down

    I don't know if I would say I am fan of System of a Down but i have the Toxicity Album with Toxicity, forest and Arials being my fave songs from the album.

    I agree their tunes are catchy and I could be singing the song in my head for a while till another song gets stuck in my head. I wouldn't mind hearing more of their songs but thats only when I get in the mood to listen to System of a Down really.

    Re: System of a Down

    System of A Down's self-titled album is the best one. I saw them for the first time years ago, and after hearing "Sugar" and "Spiders", I was hooked. The hard/speed metal mixed with intense lyrics and occasional bouncy melodies made them an immediate favorite with me. I really like a few of their later songs, like "Chop Suey" and "Forest" (from Toxicity), "Innervision" (Steal This Album!) and "Dreaming" (Hypnotize), but overall, the first will always be the best. Even the ideas and lyrics are far more interesting, fun, and enjoyable than anything in their later albums. I kind of agree that they get a bit too heavy into the Bush bashing, not because I support him, but because they do much better work with more abstract ideas.

    I also think they were better when Serj did all of the singing. Letting Shavo have more vocals was a mistake.

    Re: System of a Down

    I like System of a Down quite well, they'redifferent from anything else I've heared, the guys have wonderful voices, their screaming technique (how I call it) is the best ever, noone can scream out their anger or pain orwhatever better than them...

    Their musicir really heavy, that's true, works on your brain quite a bit, that's why this is one of the bands of witch I like fewer songs...

    I think my favourite song is "Spiders", I tihnk it's very cool, very weird and I like spiders too ^^

    Re: System of a Down

    I have to say that I like the songs Arials, Toxicity, Sad statue, loney day, and violent pornography (For the gutiar rifts)

    I would also say that they are in my top ten just under Korn but above Papa Roach

    Let's make sure we're all posting more than just a list of songs, or simply stating that we like the band. If this thread gets overrun with low quality posts, it'll have to be closed.
