Pet Peeve: System of a Down's B.Y.O.B
im sure all of you metal or rock fans may have heard of at one point of the band System of a down. i love these guys. their album Toxicity is one of my favorite CDs. the message in it is clear, the tempo of the songs work, and the vocals are amazing. they were a really great metal band, and then something went terribly wrong. no, im not talking about their break up (though that is still sad). im talking about the a song of theirs they made a lil before splitting. B.Y.O.B. while i do see the political part of the song, there is still something that gets me every time i hear it. this song is way more like that crap on pop radios. the wannabe techno shit that is more computer than a real person with real talent singing or playing. it sounds like they had Jay-Z or someone write it out for em. about 75% of this song is techno club trash, then they have the lil' guy, Daron Malakian screaming a bunch of nonsense. what happened to metal?!! why is metal music now trying to be part of the mainstream? metal is to be loud and heavy and not sound like mainstream shit! this song just makes me so p.o.ed. to go from songs like Chop Suey and Toxicity to this. its really sad. just like Nickelback's career falling in the crapper. anyway, thats all for this one. leave your comments below about how you feel about the song B.Y.O.B or any song from any artist.
