Best System of a Down Songs

The Contenders: Page 3XW


Mind is one of the best system of a down songs and it is by far the heaviest. THE GUITAR RIFF IS SO SIMPLE BUT SO AWESOME. Serj sounds amazing and shavo's bass sounds great. And also, John dolmayan is one of the greatest drummers ever. The drum part for this song is amazing.

This song releases the anger out of me. It's one of the best!

It's the longest System of a Down song


Come on guys! This song is so awesome in the way Serj shows vocal diversity in it... And AWESOME song meaning

So beautiful! I love the middle, when he sings in an oriental way. This song shows that System of a Down have so much things to bring to us.

This is one of the best songs from their 1st album, and is such a refreshing change from the normal unmemorable songs from the 1st album that just run together. WHY IS IT SO LOW? - Meko750

I don't understand such a great song with perfect vocals isn't higher.

It compares humans to popcorn; a mass produced waste of space. Should definitely be higher

This song makes me laugh and scares the crap out of me at the same time. A true masterpiece

This is such a hilariously addicting song. I love singing the chorus, and I don't notice it when I do half the time! You can imagine the weird looks I get when I sing this... - Meko750

Wow this is so underrated... It's insane. Possibly the best mosh pit song ever? Ultimate breakdown and fun as hell. It was a difficult choice (Ddevil was also a tempting underrated one). Then there's the verses which are hilariously awesome.

It's such a hilarious masterpiece! Plus it is being featured in a children's movie for July 2016, LOL! Deserves to be in the top 10 spot

You need to listen to this song live in YouTube before you get the full effect of it.

Seriously, why the hell is this way down here? I think this is a highlight off Toxicity, which I feel is one of the best rock albums released. Shameful it's #47, even when accounting for all their other impressive work in their discography.

How is this song not higher... It has such a great meaning and the instrumental value to it is great

This song offers something different

Amazing song! Sounds amazing.

29? This song should (must! ) Be in the top ten!

One of the most epic song system of a down has made.

One of the best songs I have heard in my entire life simply amazing.

This song is amazing, because it one of the most Metal songs that System has made. I love it especially when Serj screams "Know" at the end of the song.

Best System of a Down song with temper, needless and honey in my opinion - Pelayo_gb

Amazing song. Can't believe its not on top 10

Love the drums in the beginning. CURSED EARTH!

How is this so low. It's one of the best in my opinion

Great song. They should play this live again.

Great song off of Toxicity. Should be a little higher.

Admittedly it's not their best, but it's one of their better songs.

One of the best vocals of any System of a Down song. So diverse and unique, even for their standards. Plus John's percussion, is what makes this a damn good song.

Yeah, this is absolutely an AWESOME song by every point of view.

Silly lyrics, but it sounds amazing, especially when the roaring comes in toward the end, it's like a different dimension - mtndewlord

I love that song

This is just sad. 66!? How is it not higher!? Seriously, the best songs by System of a Down are not getting any love... - Meko750

54The Metro

Have any of you even heard this song? Sure it is a cover, but the cover changes the song in such a great way that it is almost impossible not to love it. Not the best song, but it is better than 60.

This should be way up in the top 10. It's a great cover and really brings in their core strategy: Turning rock music into rhythmic metal. System of a Down is the best band to ever be created

I always loved this song, this is honestly my favorite song by System Of a Down. Just the sound of the song is great.

Only 54!? This is one of their best songs!

55A.D.D. (American Dream Denial)

Laugh out loud this is so underrated. You guys should really check this one out. You will like it if you like System of a Down.

People need to turn off the radio and buy records again... this and needles are, in my opinion, their best... come on system "fans"

Why is it so low? This is easily top 15 quality, maybe not top 10 though. Certainly higher than 55!

Honestly, I understand seeing some of the songs like this one this far down the list. They have so many good songs but at the same time, THIS song is seriously in at least the top 20. There's no way this should be this far down the list.

Fist song I've ever listened from System of a Down

Are you serious? 56?!?! This song deserves at least the top 20. Its not well known but It's definitely my favorite.

This is my favorite song why is this not number 1

Great song! I love the circus type of rhythm it has. Then how Serj's voice goes soft in the chorus. Such an addictive song! Love it.

I absolutely love this song. It is kind of underrated though... Should be in the top 20.

Easily top 10 quality, but it's not mainstream enough to be that high up, unfortunately.

Admittedly it's not their best, but I'd say it's top 10 material.

58Stealing Society

59? Should at least top 5 list the best system of a down song! I'm sure that! La la la la la la.. unique voice from serj!

One of my favorites from Hypnotize. Should be at least in top forty.

I can't believe this is so low. Easily the best "Daron Song" they've done. I would love to see it live one day.

59Jet Pilot

I think this is one of the best SOAD songs but too much underrated. - metalhead1

My favorite, sadly it is largely under the rader.

Great song but what the hell does "wired were the eyes of a horse on a jet pilot" mean?

This song is amazing guys, should be higher! The solo in this song is one of System Of A Down's best solos ever. Everything else is amazing. Should be in the top 20's. Vote! - johnpaularguelles

Nuguns is awesome! It should be higher thatn 54! The solo in the song is amazing! I think it is one of my favorite songs of all-time by System of a Down!

This song is so underrated. Nuguns is actually in my top 10 best System Of A Down songs (my opinion. ) I wish that they would play this one live someday.
