so let me get this straight....

It's the 10th anniversary of Toxicity, the record that got them known (also, arguably, their best album), and the notion of playing it doesn't cross their minds?

odd.

But, if that wasn't enough, time for a game of good idea/bad idea

Good idea: play 27 songs for your come back tour
Bad idea: 15 of them are from your shittiest albums.
Even WORSE idea: play exactly ZERO songs from one of your strongest records.

You know, a year ago, I would have just said "Fuck Darron Malakian." It's time for some revising.

Fuck this band.

I really have no idea how you can call System of a Down "sellouts." Toxicity sold 12 million copies, and even their self titled was put out on a major label and could be purchased at Best Buy, Borders etc. Mezmerize/Hypnotize are little different musically, but they retained the weirdness, political lyrics and everything else that makes System of a Down what they are. Hell, Toxicity has sold more copies than those albums. Unless you were a fan of the demo/club show days (which you were not) then you can't accuse them of selling out since throughout their career they've been headlining huge tours, selling tons of albums and being played on the radio.

I grew up listening to System of a Down and pre ordered both Mezmerize and Hypnotize from my local Circuit City (RIP) and I can still remember popping those CDs in my portable CD player and listening to them straight over and over again. I haven't really listened to System of a Down in a few years, but I loved those albums when they came out and I still do. Also, if you tally it up they play more off Toxicity and SOAD than they do Mezmerize/Hypnotize, and they still play around 6 songs off each of the 4 records. That's a pretty damned mixed set as far as I'm concerned, plus I'll finally get to see System live. I can't wait.

Mezmerize and Hypnotize are the epitome of selling out.

How do you figure that?

Let's take a look at US sales:

SYOAD: Platinum
Toxicity: 3x Platinum
STA: Platinum
Mezmerize: Platinum
Hypnotize: Platiunum

So where exactly did they sell out? Doesn't a band have to be underground for a bit before they do that? Seems to me their popularity has been pretty consistant over the last decade.

This set is just about the same as when I saw them on the 2006 Ozzfest, just the songs are in a different order. I'd see them again live if I have the opportunity to.

Set's great. Yeah they're playing a bunch of crap from Hypnotize, but they're playing great stuff from SOAD and Toxicity. I can only think of a few other songs I'd want them to play.

Haven't really listened to Steal! that much, so I don't know if I should be pissed about the lack of songs from there. However, they're probably gonna switch up the set each night anyway; they had a website where you can pick 7 songs you want them to play.

And just to add my two cents to the table, I don't think Mesmerize/Hypnotize was selling out either. They were already massively popular before that. If they stuck with the same style as Toxicity, they still would've sold just as many copies as they did with Mesmerize/Hypnotize. It's called an evolution, people :tp:

I knew the 1st time I heard Hypnotize this band was in serious trouble. By far my least favorite SOAD album because of I reason... Daron Malakian.

When you have one of the most original, unique, commanding Lead Singers and you virtually cut him out of the song writing and diminish his Lead Vocal duties to half of the songs, it's a recipe for disaster.

The 1st time I heard Lonely Day my hatred for Daron reached an all-time high point. I have zero respect for a glory hound or someone who can't stand someone else in the band getting more attention then them. That sums that guy up to a T.

Daron is a talented song writer but a horrific singer. Think how much better those songs would be with Serj singing the lead vocals. Lonely Day is one of the worst songs my ears have ever heard and while I am very impressed with this setlist playing that shit song over Violent Pornography, Chik N Stu, Revenga, Mind, Spiders, Cocaine, Jet Pilot, Atwa, Soil, Boom! & Innervision among others? I just don't get it.

I've seen these guys 6 or 7 times and would love to see them an 8th but I'd go walk outside during Lonely Day. I will always attribute that song directly to their eventual break up. Mesmerize >>>> Hypnotize

I think people are really quick to call SOAD sell outs because their lyrics are very politically driven yet in the prime of Toxicity they were all over MTV and are multi-platinum selling artists. Not exactly some underground force. You can look at them as the RATM for another generation. There are drunken right wing frat boys singing along to SOAD (I knew quite a few in college) like there were with Rage in the 90s, not exactly the demographic you would expect given the lyrics, but that is what happens with popularity. When a band with insightful (and inciteful) political lyrics are selling a ton of t-shirts at Hot Topic and are all over your local Best Buy some people are going to have the perception that it is a packaged and watered-down consumer friendly version of rebellion. I'm not saying that I don't enjoy them or look down on them for becoming popular; IMO that is just why they are quickly labeled as sell outs.

Anyway, the first album is my favorite followed by Steal This Album, so the set could be a little better. I would really love to see Mind, Peephole, Highway Song; but the fact that they are playing PLUCK is awesome. All that said I would still pay money to see them whenever they do a full tour.

I think jhdeity's analysis of the Hypnotize/Mezmerize era is dead on.

They definitely sold out with their last two albums. Do people not realize that those two albums fit completely onto one disc? And that's including all the filler songs they threw in on both albums. They wanted an easy cash grab, so instead of putting out one solid 45-50 minute album with no filler, they put out two 35-40 minute albums, with a bunch of filler.

And this tour is just a cash grab. When they did Ozzfest '06, they were just going through the motions of the show, not giving a shit. The videos from last night were surprisingly even worse than what they did at Ozzfest '06. They just fucking stand there, and play what they need to play. And proof of that is when Serj plays with the FCC, he's all over the stage, putting tons of energy into his performance. Here, he stands in one spot and says the words. These guys don't give a fuck about the band, they just want an easy payday.

Selling out=Choosing money over maintaining quality. They did this with Mezmerize Hypnotize, as well this tour. They are sellouts.

Never taking shit from you about unextreme extreme metal again! :party:

First of all, SOAD>>>>Opeth, Ludicra, Alcest etc. etc.
Second of all, I rarely accuse people of being "sellouts" and certainly wouldn't complain about pussy-black metal being "sellouty." System do mainstream political hardrock fantastically, and they have a special place in my heart for being some of the first "heavy" music I listened do. Bands that try and ruin awesome music genres by playing their instruments well and reinventing perfect things with less zazz suck at their goal of extreme music. SOAD is far from extreme.
So basically, pfft, you totally will.


And all you people need to stop complaining about the last two SOAD albums. They ruled, and Daron rules, shut up.

05-11-2011, 05:07 PM
I kinda like System of a Down, but people need to stop saying how super long this set is. You guys realize most of their songs are 2-4 minutes right? All of that probably adds up to 2 hours. Maybe a little bit less than that. The Rolling Stones probably play slightly more songs than that but that's because a) againg, most of those songs have really short lengths, and b) they're ridiculously easy to play.

How do you figure that?

Let's take a look at US sales:

SYOAD: Platinum
Toxicity: 3x Platinum
STA: Platinum
Mezmerize: Platinum
Hypnotize: Platiunum


I hope you realize that an albums ability to go platinum doesn't cease once that particular album cycle ends. Toxicity, when it was first released went Gold. When Steal This Album came out, it stayed the same. When Mezmerize/Hypnotize came out, their sales SKYROCKETED. Wonder why?

Is it because their riffs were watered down pop punk songs? Is it because they decided to let some dickhead with an ego larger than the Earth - fuck that, larger than our galaxy - become the main vocalist and tell their ACTUAL vocalist (who immediately became one of the most distinct voices of rock music in the late 90's/early 00's) to take the back seat?

Who knows.

I think jhdeity's analysis of the Hypnotize/Mezmerize era is dead on.

It has literally nothing to do with their lyrics (although, admittedly, even THOSE got watered down with those last 2 records). Violent Pornography is a shit song. I don't know why everyone recognizes THAT song out of everything on that record.

I understand that they have been a very high-selling band almost since their inception, but you'd think that would allow them to keep SOME sort of artistic integrity, but no, they started wearing uniforms on stage, they started writing more melodic style vocals to appeal to a larger audience (there is nothing that band has written that is more poppy than the chorus to BYOB), and their lyrics suffered because they got to damn greedy.

What, politically, could piss a multimillionaire off? These guys no longer care about any of the things they originally sang about. They couldn't give a fuck less.

They started writing songs about how inappropriate TV has become in America (Violent Pornography), people with big egos (Cigaro), basically, they wrote songs about small injustices that made the MAJORITY of Americans irritated. They became more relatable for a reason. EVERYTHING about this band got watered down.

I first heard "Friik" and "Temper" when a friend showed me a demo he received at a show (didn't care for "Friik" much, loved, and still do love, "Temper"), then soon found out it was the same band who did "Sugar," so I have been listening to System of a Down for some time, but I did start to see a difference.

Now, I'm not saying that Hypnotize/Mesmerize both sucked, because I'll be the first to admit that Mesmerize didn't leave my car CD player for close to a month when it was released, but Hypnotize showed a sign of aging. I don't know if it was the hype, or if Mesmerize's material was so strong to me at the time that Hypnotize felt tired, rushed, or maybe uninspired. I guess, until Hypnotize, I found that I couldn't really say that System had a song that I'd skip because I didn't like it, or didn't care to hear the end of it.

I remember thinking recently, while discussing Hypnotize with my roommate, that they may have realized that while they previously wrote songs that stood for their beliefs and thoughts, you can only write about each subject in so many contexts before it becomes monotonous. They may have then figured the next best thing was to write about what ultimately fueled these beliefs, simplifying the parts, and writing about those. It may seem like selling out to some, but you can't say that they sat there and said "Hey guys, let's write shittier songs. I really want to sound more like Simple Plan."

Musically, come on, guys, let's think about it for a second, their self-titled was absolutely timeless and innovative, but "Sugar" had three chords and 7 notes repeated (which Korn later moved up to the 12th fret and used as the opening for "Falling Away From Me" if there are any players here that may remember 7th grade, lol). Nevertheless, their hooks and progressions were catchy, the solos in "Soil" and "Streamline" are fantastic, and it always catches your ear, but it was never that hard. Ever.

Don't mean to shit in anyone's fold-out couch, but that's how I feel the band has progressed.

What time was the show supposed to start and did it actually start at that time? And how long after that time did System go on?

7/10 Mayhem Fest or Buster Posey bobblehead day... FUCK

I'm thinking tons of BP Bobbleheads will hit ebay the next day for cheap. Machine Head alone is worth going to Mayhem for to me.

Glad to see Radio/Video in the setlist, one of my favorite System songs. I am also very happy and surprised to see Tentative in the setlist. It was only played once before but I'm glad it's back. That song kicks ass!

But, one major complaint: NOTHING from Steal This Album! That's my favorite SOAD album and they complete skipped over it. I hope they at least add one song from Steal This Album! into the set, Mr. Jack preferably. Not that my preference matters because they're not touring the Midwestern United States.

But what can I say, I'm happy. The first metal band I ever got into is back!!!
