System of a Down are one of the most innovative and original bands in rock and metal, and we’re celebrating their music with our picks for their Top 10 songs.
As you’ll see in the video compilation above, System of a Down are one of those bands you can’t quite put your finger on, especially when you take into account the monumental success SOAD has experienced. They’ve been bizarre from Day 1, but it seems like System of a Down possess something everyone can enjoy.
The Armenian-American rockers exploded into the rock and metal landscape with their self-titled album in 1998, releasing modern classics like “Sugar” and “Spiders” in the process. Serj Tankian‘s bizarre wordplay and Daron Malakian‘s unhinged leads pointed towards where the band would go next.
Toxicity is seen by many as System of a Down’s masterpiece. Honing “Chop Suey!,” “Aerials,” “ATWA” and 11 other unforgettable tracks, Toxicity has gone on to sell over 12 million copies worldwide. After Steal This Album! came Mezmerize and Hypnotize, which saw System going in a bunch of different directions. Highlights like “B.Y.O.B.,” “Lonely Day” and “Lost in Hollywood” remain fan favorites to this day.
