Flashback Friday | "Chop Suey" - System of a Down



Feel like raging today..."grab a brush and put a little make-up...ROOAAARRR". This song was from the 2001 album Toxicity. The song was unexpectedly caught up in controversy as it's popularity coincided with the September 11th terrorist attacks and some found it to be insensitive, particularly the line, "I don't think you trust in my self-righteous suicide." The song was pulled from the airwaves but the video did achieve regular rotation on MTV and the song was even nominated for a Grammy for Best Metal Performance.
