Most Underrated System of a Down Songs

System is underrated. But what songs are underrated even among the System fans?

The Top Ten

1 Forest

In my opinion this is their 2nd best song next to Chop Suey! This is the most underrated song of all time. Its only #15 on the Top System of a Down songs! -

Fantabulous, and with a riff that could blow through walls - ninapalmer

2 Lost in Hollywood

This song is awesome! But not many people know about it. The lyrics perfectly suit that arrogance that actors go through when they are inducted in to the hell that is Hollywood! - dragon13304

Total awesomeness. Check out my list called the top ten rock
Songs youve never heard! Great list dude!

6 Dreaming

Great vocals by both Serj and Daron. Great heavy, and soft parts, along with great lyrics. This has it all, and is the most underrated System song in my opinion.

Some people said that Tankian's vocal at the verse part just weird as hell but I find it so haunting. It's a good song u should listen to it. I even play it 3 times in a row. Can't get enough for this song.

Such a deep and haunting song!
I love its structure and just everything about it, especially Daron's vocal parts! :-)

7 Question!

Despite what you may think of this being #7 on Top System of a Down Songs, this song actually isn't that popular. -

This is actually my favorite song of all time by any band. I don't know how it doesn't get more recognition.

Great song.

8 Thetawaves

This is quite possibly the most underrated System of a Down song ever. No one seems to talk about this song and the band has never played it live. Should be a lot higher!

Thetawaves is so underrated. Most people probably have never heard this song! This is an awesome song to listen to in my opinion.

Should be in top 5. It's ridiculously underrated. This is one of their best songs in my opinion.

One of a few songs by System Of A Down that's underrated. It's a great song!

9 Holy Mountains

This song is usually in the lower top 10 instead of the top 3 where it belongs.

This song not only sounds amazing, but has an awesome background and meaning as well

Again, its #8 but it still isn't very popular. -

18 Radio/Video

My personal forth favorite soad song, most anyone, after listening to it a few times loves this song. -

Best System of a Down song ever. Sadly, few people know it.

Actually, when it comes to System of a Down, it becomes really hard to vote for 1 song..
The band is amazing! They are the best when they are loud (eg. Sugar), they are the best when they are soft (eg. Roulette), they are they best when it comes to alternative rock (eg. Chop Suey)..

Same with Thetawaves from the same album, almost no one talks about this song and they haven't played this live... The solo is orgasmic and basically the whole song is kickass! Definitely one of my favorite songs by them of all time.

Can't even find it on YouTube and it seems to have 10 difference spellings, awesome song, chilling drum solo!
