Holy crap - those figures are from the last few days?! I don't think I've heard any song 68 times - let alone a song I love. I think I'd get sick of it after about 15

lol. I think the only 2 songs by ANYONE that I have listened to that nearly that many times was Lost in Hollywood- SOAD (I fell asleep to it on repeat) and Stairway to Heaven- Led Zeppelin (during my geometry test). I am impressed.

adombomb222
01-16-2006, 07:48 PM
i like them but you like Byob or chop Suey better?

Igniton
01-16-2006, 07:50 PM
probably chop suey! because it took me a while to like BYOB

even though the play count on itunes for each is:

BYOB 21
Chop Suey! 10

adombomb222
01-19-2006, 07:25 PM
im really starting to like Boom! and Soldier Side

If yuo cant tell by my updated singnature! :p

yay
01-19-2006, 07:59 PM
I like BYOB, Chop Suey, Toxicity and Aerials. I only listen to them because I have an Armenian friend who is nuts about SOAD. They are good songs though. BYOB would be better if it didn't have Dickhead Malakian screaming so loud he sounds like a chick at the start of that song though.

adombomb222
01-19-2006, 08:05 PM
lol, yea. have you seen the music vedio? that one guy id flippin insane! his eyes pop out of his head!

opivy21
01-19-2006, 08:09 PM
I'm not a huge SOAD fan, but Toxicity is an incredible song. The verse is so good.

My second favorite would probably be Sugar. It's so trippy, but I guess a lot of songs by them are.

Drummerguy123
01-19-2006, 08:17 PM
I'd say Sugar, Toxicity, Aerials, BYOB, Lost in Hollywood, Violent Pornography, Hypnotize, and Vicinity of Obcenity. One thing is for sure, SOAD sure picks good songs for their singles.

Zack
01-19-2006, 08:27 PM
I like the song Deer Dance.

adombomb222
01-19-2006, 08:33 PM
lol yea, i still like soldier side and Boom! even though its an old song its really cool!

Drilli
01-19-2006, 09:41 PM
Ignition, I doubt. Here I wish to buy their MP3. :)

adombomb222
02-10-2006, 04:53 PM
Well since i just bought another system of a down album, Mezmerize, my favorite songs now are; (in order, kinda)

1~ Revange [we all want sweet revange, dont we?]

2~ Lost In Hollywood ["all you maggots smokeing your fags on sunset Blv. all you bitches through your hand in the air and way them like you just dont care." not much more to say, this is a great song.]

3~ Toxicity [I love this song, it sounds so cool, love the message]

4~ Chop Suey! [dont know who wouldnt like this song]

5~ Radio/Video [this is such a cool sounding song!]

6~ Sad Statue [i think many people can relate to this song, with the whole war thing]

7~ B.Y.O.B. [just a good song]
8~ Boom! [like B.Y.O.B. this is great song, love the message]

9~ Question! [Dont we all have questions, this song is so cool, i love the music video]

10~ Solder Side (the song, not intro) [this song also many people can realate to, with the war and stuff. this song more or so then Sad Statue]

The one that got me into SOAD, Chop Suey. Ever since I heard that song way back when I've been addicted to them.

02-10-2006, 08:41 PM
I like the song Sugar, off the Self Titled. It just has so much energy in it, and it's catchy.

Chop Suey is awesome. It's got feeling and sounds sick. The lyrics are great.

Lost In Hollywood Rocks!!!!!! from 3 days ago till now i have listened to it at least 200 times!!!!!!!! I think this is my new fravorite overall song, of all the bands i like! :D :D :D

LOST IN HOLLYWOOD
I'll wait here
You're crazy
Those vicious streets are filled with strays
You should've never gone to Hollywood


They find you
Two-time you
Say you're the best they've ever seen
You should've never trusted Hollywood


I wrote you
And told you
You were the biggest fish out here
You should've never gone to Hollywood


They take you
And make you
They look at you in disgusting ways
You should've never trusted Hollywood


I was standing on the wall
Feeling ten feet tall
All you maggots
Smoking fags on Santa Monica Blvd.


This is my front page
This is my new age
All you bitches put your hands in the air
And wave them like you just don't care


All you maggots
Smoking fags out there on Sunset Blvd.
All you bitches put your hands in the air
And wave them like you just don't care


Phony people come to pray


Look at all of them beg to stay
Phony people come to pray


(The lines in the letter said
"We have gone to Hackensack")


Look at all of them beg to stay
Phony people come to pray


All you maggots
Smoking fags on Santa Monica Blvd.


All you maggots
Smoking fags out there on Sunset Blvd.


All you maggots
Smoking fags out there on Hollywood Blvd.


You should've never trusted Hollywood
You should've never gone to Hollywood


All you bitches put your hands in the air
And wave them like you just don't care
You should've never trusted Hollywood

I dislike Memerize Daron sings way to much Serj is a much better singer. With that said I listen to S/T the most and then Toxicity it has the best songs: Soil, Suite Pea, Ddevil, War?, Sugar, Spiders, Know, Needles, Shimmy, X, Science, Forest, Deer Dance.

S/T>Toxicity>The other albums.

adombomb222
02-13-2006, 09:59 PM
Toxicity is most likely my fravorite album from S.O.A.D. i love toxicity and Chop Suey! But Boom! off Steal This Album is really good, in some ways better the B.Y.O.B. However i havent heard much off their self-titled album, i hope to own all their albums like i do with the offsprings...

[Edit: Cool my 200th post!]

I'm really really really shocked that everyone seems to like the newer stuff the best. The self-titled album from 1998 is by FAR their best work. Toxicity was by far their worst album. Order of albums: Self-titled, Steal This Album!, Mezmerize, Hypnotize, Toxicity.

Best songs:

Sugar
Darts
PLUCK
Peephole
Suggestions
Nüguns
Mr. Jack
Highway Song
Roulette
Streamline
ATWA
Deer Dance
Revenga
Lost in Hollywood
Tentative
Soldier Side

I think the reason I hate toxicity so much is because of "aerials" and "chop suey". they were soooooooo generic and radio-oriented. Also, it was the onset of their selling out. I think hypnotize/mezmerize gets ranked above toxicity, also, based on the fact that those two were kind of concept albums (kind of- not totally) and they fit so well together. The flow of them was incredible, and the songs were powerful. I just found Toxicity to be boring. Though I misssssssss SERJ TANKIAN as the PRIMARY VOCALIST. Daron is a terrific background vocalist, no doubt. His piercing voice compliments Serj's soooooo well, but he should NOT be the lead vocalist. His voice doesn't match the quality of the band's sound, and his voice gets boring. Serj had the most vocal range and incredible talent on the ST- for instance in Suggestions, when he goes in one song from singing to roaring to screaming to screeching like a girl to growling. That's an amazing vocal talent.

Question.... is Serj the guy with the long hair thats arabian? And is Daron the guy that when he sings in B.Y.O.B. his eyes pop out of his head? or is it the other way around?

yeah i take time to listen to every song, just to undrstand it. i dont think you can understand a song wit just listening to it once, ittake many times to hear everything. also you should read the lyrics, i did that to B.Y.O.B. i listened to it a lot and then read the lyrics a few times... and in my own personal level i understand the song.

I got System Of A Down: Hypnotize this weekend, and after listeing to it a crap load of time over and over again. I have to say, its not what I expected at all. Mezmerize is a lot better, not saying Hypnotize was bad, but I would have though that it would be as good if not better then Mezmerize. And maybe it's because I've listened to Mezmerize a lot more and for a longer time.

It's just when i bought it I'd expect it to be another Mezmerize, however I did get the Dual-Disc with the B.Y.O.B. and Question! vedios on it along with "The Makeing Of "Mezmerize" & "Hypnotize"" witch was pretty good, I liked hearing the stuff they had to say about the song and all.

So to people here on the Offspring Forums, i want to hear what you have to say about these two albums. Like witch one you thinkwas better, and why. Also if you got the Hypnotize Dual-Disc what you think about the maeing of the albums and the music vedios.

Personaly, i think that Mezmerize is a way better album then Hypnotize and I would highly recommend it to anyone that wants to get into System Of A Down. And I would rule out Hypnotize at all, its a great album and i would also recommend it to people seeking some good music, I'd also recommend buying the Dual-Disc, the videos are great!

I thought Hypnotize was better then Mezmerize of course I Despise Daron as a lead singer.

02-22-2006, 06:30 PM
hypnotize was a lot deeper, and, in my opinion, mesmerize you can only listen to so many times before it gets annoying.
