48 Toxicity (System of a Down) Toxicity (System of a Down)

With the lyrical genius/intensity added to Toxicity, much like all other System of a Down songs, fused with the instrumental work, it's one of the best metal/rock songs you can hope to find out there.

It's one of the best instrumental rock songs and best lyrics and a kind of song showing some rasons, the reason that's real for what we're facing now. No one can't say will never be again. But it's a kind perfect by the nature, we are to say at the end.
