It shocks me how a band as popular as this can get away with releasing such a terrible song.

releasing songs as bad as this is how they get popular anyway,once a band erases all talent from their material they are bound to get famous,just look at slipknot,oh wait...they never had talent in the first place

this song was constructed through feeling, to implement coragraphed noise(Govt) through the trained eye. Listen closely, it reveals the true meaning of this band's purpose on earth.

Banderia proves a great point, This song definitely reveals what this band is all about. Why is it that no matter what band i'm reading news about there is someone who has to throw in a Slipknot Sux! comment? That or Korn Sux! they're both highly successful bands that obviously have a ton of fans, but some of you still feel the need to cut them down just cuz they're kicking a$$ all over the world and you're not. Get over it you punk b****es!

Looks,

Here in the real life metal community we are highly dissapointed when a band sells out, whether we in fact liked them or not, as is the case with Slipknot and Korn and System. I wouldnt even post on these guys if I didnt have to, just to keep the kiddies and "freaks" off these damn boards. The bands sucks amd 9 times out of 10, so do the comments of their fans.

yeah i agree with waitingformydoom. and i don't believe that system is a sell out either. they don't have rappers in their video and their sound is still metal.

Damn, everyone is just proving Negatyve One right. You all post like beauty school dropouts.

Like Metallica, Slayer, Korn, Megadeth and thousdands of other bands: SOAD is just one more example of a band that loses sight of metal.
The older and more commercially successful a band becomes the more they tinker with their sound moving the aggression out in place of pop-song format and idiot-simple catchy melodies....or they just run out of ideas and retread the same tired bullsh**.

I liked System of a Down when their guitarist kept himself quiet (his vocal harmonies were good, and his guitar skill remarkable, but his lead vocals and lyrics are in the style of really piss poor quality punk.... his voice is waaay too Coheed and Cambria for it's own good.

Serj, Shavo and John remain interesting but they're being pushed to the fringe so SOAD can become Daron Malakian of a Down.

Its sad really, because every member of System really are talented but they're letting the guitarist steal the show and it's disrupting their otherwise very interesting sound. I liked their debut, "Toxicity" and "Steal!" quite a bit but "Mez" has 3 good songs and 2 so-so songs...the rest is crap.

Sellout /Not sellout. Who cares? sh**=sh** and now so do SOAD. I didn't mind their s/t (Spiders was a really cool track), but it was inconsistent, some cool stuff, lots of meh stuff. Toxicity was more consistent, but it's peaks weren't as high as their s/t. Steal This Album was a typical 'for hardcore fans only' meh rarities collection.

Mezmerize, however, was terrible. The quirkiness became stupidity, the heaviness was forced, the songwriting dropped several notches down and most crucially - WHO THE f*** DECIDED IT WAS A GOOD IDEA TO GIVE DARON MALAKIAN THAT MUCH VOCAL INPUT?!?!?. The guy can harmonise quite well, but as a lead vocalist he is truly awful. Especially when a fairly talented vocalist, Serj Tankian, is rotting on the sidelines.

As a serious musician and songwriter, I have the ut-most respect for this band. Daren is probably the most talented of all of them. In a time when rock & metal have sucked a$$ for a long time they have made a HUGE mark and are truly the most talented musicians out there right now. If you don't like the new stuff it's because you don't have a clue about what goes into making good music. Until you can do a better job, SHUT THE F*%$ UP!

Everyone fighting over this is rather funny. Honestly, just listen to what you like, and don't get into "flamewars" with other people who may disagree with you. Death metal, rap, techno, classical. All pretty good.

I don't understand why people are posting here if they have nothing good to say about the band.
I mean, why the f*** would you go into a thread about a band that you DONT EVEN LIKE.

No offense, but it seems like some people here are trying to prove their masculinity.
Just stop and think, would you run into a live System gig and rave on about how sh** they are?
I don't think any of you would have the guts.

Well, techincally, Deffering to the biblical allusions of christian ellusion in the present world of today, refering to those biblical allusions, system of a down is going to perform at the European Music Video awards, and therefore, the number 3 is going to take over the world, because it is everywhere.
I could not help but notice the startling fact that I have posted three posts on the internet before this one. Is this just mere coincidence? I think not. This is yet another addition to the uncanny phenominon of the appearance of the powers of 3 which are henceforth appearing at unprecedented rates. The xbox 360 is a series of 3 digits, all multiples of 3, (excluding 0) and their sum equals 9, also a multiple of 3. Additionally, the number 707 is also a series of 3 digits, which when added equal 14, which is 5 more than the multiple of 3 times 3. Yet this prevelance of the letter 3 does not stop there. In World War II, there was the "Big 3," Franklin, Stalin, and Churchill, but even more startilingly, is the fact of the number that occurs after the number 2; 3. Yes, that is correct. What will come after WWII? WWIII. This appearance of the number 3 culminates into a most frightening scare at the consideration that the word Transformers is 3 syllables, and that the motto "Transformers, robots in disguise," is 3 words when you add 3 more words and subtract 2. According to this evidence, the chanse of the number 3 taking over the world is most possibly possible in the nearly possible future. We are all DOOMED.
p.s.: Additionally, I could not help but notice that the word "all" is 3 letters. Coincidence? I Think not. OMFG "I THINK NOT" IS 3 WORDS!!!! W'RE ALL GONNA DIE!!!! OMEFFGEEE "DIE" IS 3 LETTERS OMFG!!!!!!!!!
