WRONG.

The only reason it exists is because drugs get people fucked up, and people love getting fucked up.

Symphony in Peril may be a bit overdone in the breakdown thing, but theirs ARE awesome. Just TRY not to hardcore dance when you hear the 2nd breakdown in "Stiletto".

I guess it could be called a breakdown, right after the solo in "Domination" by Pantera.

Solo is at 3:12, "Breakdown" is at 3:48;

the word "breakdown" has lost all of its meaning and now practically every part of every song is a breakdown.

Most breakdowns suck.

Sledgehammer breakdown by TFOT is pretty kickass.

Basically a bridge. I'm not sure what the definition is, but personally i consider a slow bridge a bridge, and a fast chaotic kind of bridge a breakdown.

Opeth are gods of breakdowns. Although i'd say they're more like multiple bridges.

It is when you take part of the song and modify it to its key elements, or change its style, or enter into a solo section, or into a entirely new idea where instruments are re-entered one by one

Basically

Awesome
