I remember a few years back when I saw this video, I thought that these guys were incredibly rude, idiotic and that their success had gotten to their heads.

I watched it yesterday after a long time , and I both laughed and cried at how incredibly amazing and thoughtful these guys are. No matter what anyone says, the members from System of A Down, to me, are TRUE artists.

I don't know, but I guess I felt like sharing it here for anyone who possibly hasn't seen it yet.

On the come up we were listening to Grateful Dead and the music started passing through my bowel and out my arsehole as this violet stream of light. I shat music. It was beautiful.

I know right! I mean, why can't someone, for once, create something that everyone likes and considers not sucky instead of what they believe in?

It' so annoying.

So they believe in being juvenile during interviews? That even though they signed a contract which obliged them to do interviews and other promotional activities, they should behave like teenagers who have just discovered weed during them?

They're a bunch of pricks, and the sooner they all get leprosy and die the better.

I sort of get and respect the whole "we don't have to do interviews in the way you want them - we're not obliged to give a straight answer", but "fellatio" isn't funny or inventive. Daron and Serj were just acting like arrogant dickheads.

Those other two seem like good guys though.

I didn't really want to say too much on this thread, but let me say that I actually agree with you.

Only the fellatio part was boring, not funny. Everything else was immaculate and it touched me so much so that I actually posted this video in the Pit of all places.

Guys just don't act like this anymore and it's saddening.

No, I was just giving the fellatio bit as an example of how stupid and immature they are all the way through. It's not even witty evasiveness, it's just awkward and stupid.

But the interviewer handles it all pretty badly though really. Meh.

In any case: I really can't tell if you're trolling or not here, but I guess either way it's not really worth giving any more discussion to. They're acting like tools here. You like them (or are just trolling) so will disagree. Not much else to say.

If I was taking this seriously, I'd have ignored it.

I do, however, stand by the "they're dicks" bit, and if you agree to do an interview, act your age, not your (UK) shoe size and do the ****ing interview.

I'm not trolling. I do like them, but I'm not forcing my opinion on anyone. I misunderstood what you said.

I didn't like Everything they did but I agreed with the sentiment very deeply.

Especially with the part where they say that they can't be expected to answer questions asking to describe the meanings to their songs, titles etc because that is upto the listener and audience. Everyone takes it differently and if they do answer it, they are basically telling what their fans should believe and they don't want that.

Out of the whole interview, that is what I want to put out that I agree with.

Lol this thread. It's acceptable to be a bit of an asshole in the pit, but as soon as someone in a band does it it's immature. Lighten up, they're just having fun.

No. They most definitely can be expected to answer questions on what they meant when they wrote songs. That doesn't mean that other people can't interpret it their own way; of course they can. They can do it really ****ing badly(like Charles Manson and the Beatle's White Album), or they can do it in a way that's more relevant to themselves.
But basically, that interview shows at least 2 members of SOAD have their heads firmly wedged in their own sigmoid colon.
