    I think System of a Down is a great band. Their style is unique and can go from heavy/death metal to a soft mourning tone. Their kinda weird though, but that adds flavor. Mike Shinoda listened to their self-titled debut album, called System of a Down (i'm not being redundant :D ). What do you people think about them?

    Yes, they're awesome, I agree. I love their unique style. As you said they use so many different elements in their song writing. Personally though, I like their first album because it was so much more original and quirky than their second one! Fav songs: Soil, Mind, PLUCK, Sugar, Toxicity, Shimmy, and Streamline.

    To sum it up qucik:

    First album - amazing.
    Second album - okay.
    Third album - crap.

    So now, I think they're crap. :lol:

    The last album wasn't even new material. Wait for their new album coming out next year for a better opinion! I thought STA was as good as Toxicity actually, more like the self-titled!

    I love these lyrics:

    This ballgames in the refrigerator
    The door closed
    The lights are out
    And the butters getting hard

    What a splendid pie
    Pizza pizza pie
    Every minute, every second
    Buy buy buy buy buy
    What a splendid pie
    Pizza pizza pie
    Every minute, every second
    Buy buy buy buy buy

    Pepperoni and green peppers
    Mushrooms, olive, chives

    Actually I think that Serj has the best voice out there! And the lyrics can be crazy but they can also be serious and meaningful!

    SOAD is cool. But i don't think i would ever buy an album of theirs. I have really only heard stuff from Toxicity and i think Aerials is their best song.

    System of a Down are ok. I have only heard stuff from Toxicity so yeah, the other stuff might be better. I might get the albums off someone :)

    I found "Toxicity" in school (propably someone through it out), and I listened to it and it sucked. The only good songs in that cd are Chop Suey and Aerials. I also liked how they did the protest thing for Iraq in the Boom video because I'm from Iraq. But they're just not my style.

    Well you know what? You're so looking for trouble that I'm not going to even ban you or close this thread. You'll have to suffer more time on these forums that you clearly wish to be banned from. Get a damned life and grow up.
