This is a really really awesome cover of Toxicity - SoaD
I'd like to hear your views.

Two things. First. Your rule doesn't apply to anything System of a Down has ever done. Sure, they seemed awesome back when you were in middle school and raging against the system, but then you grow up and realize they've sucked this entire time. Which, leads me to point number two.

Second, objectifying women as objects to be displayed for your viewing pleasure: not cool.

That is all.

I don't know, SoaD has some pretty good stuff. And Serj has the awesomestest voice.

They had, like, five-six good songs. Which isn't bad, but I moved on pretty quickly.

Also don't we have a thread for awesome covers? I feel like we should...

I heartily disagree; their self-titled album is one of the handful of albums I can listen to the entire way through and not want to skip a single song... one of the other albums that shares that honorific is Toxicity.

Fair enough; I definitely wasn't trying to state that as fact. In retrospect, I could've followed them longer to get used to the vocals...

I've always held that bow instruments can make any song better.

Also: the drummer does a pretty mean Black Hole Sun.

In their defense, they are actually quite good at it. I disagree that SoaD "sucks", but that is a matter of personal taste, I don't think they're the greatest band in the world by a long shot but I would hardly say they're not a talented bunch... but hey, good for you for maturing and outgrowing their screamy rebel music!

I apologize if you find my remark objectifying, that was certainly not the intention. You'll have to take my word for it, of course, but believe me I do not treat women like objects to be displayed for my viewing pleasure... it is merely an equivalent reaction to that of a woman going bananas for the man taking his shirt off for no reason at all in the middle of the movie, triggered by hormones and/or biology... which is all just a fancy way to say that I am attracted to women because that's how I was built, and expressing that beauty inherently enhances the listening experience for me was the sole intention of my comment and I was in no way claiming attractive women should play music because they are attractive and much less implying they should be recorded and made available for us men to look at. That would be creepy.

You must admit it's a lot classier than "LAWLZ THEY SHOULDVE SHOWN THERE NIPPLEZ". But yes, I agree my comment could easily be interpreted as "uncool".


I will say this, though, and I don't mean to sound like John Lithgow on Footloose, I'm just bored and feel like going all You-Tube-Essay-Comment, but sometimes women are just asking for it. I went to a night club the other day and it was really depressing to see all the drunk boys and girls "dancing" and grinding against each other. So pardon me for the crudeness of this remark, but a woman who goes to a place with terrible music (because unlike SoaD that is terrible music) to get wasted and look for men to grope and drool all over her is an object.

I agree wholeheartedly with this. In my book, a rock band achieves greatness when a violin pops out in the middle of a song.

Sounds like a subject to me, given that you're explaining her behavior in terms of subjective motivations. If you want something and you go out and get it, how are you an object?

This one time a woman was asking me for it. But I was like, "sorry we're out of chocolate swirl ice cream." She ended up asking for a different it and enjoyed her vanilla ice cream.

Hope you learned your lesson, bonzoWhale. System Of A Down are fucking bullshit. In fact, I think I speak for everyone in the thread and every single member of these forums when I tell you, System Of A Down are bullshit. I trust you'll know better in future.

WHAT?


I dunno, it was late :P
But still, allow me to rectify my point, before you all kick me out the door you have clearly pointed out.

How does a woman (or a man for that matter) expect to be respected without respecting herself first? As a young man I am expected to take delight in partying and drinking and women but I do not find joy in looking at people completely wasted, with their senses completely taken out, and as I grew up taught to respect women I find it specially depressing when a young girl allows peer pressure to take the best of her and dances drunk with a drunker horny teenager who takes advantage of her. Seriously, go to a night club early in the morning and look at the people outside, you all know what I mean.

Now take a primitive male brain, who is drunk and impaired, and sees a hot woman throwing herself at him and allowing to do as he pleases with her... what the ____ do you expect him to think?

Clearly everyone focused on that last sentence before flaming my comment, but think of it as a punchline... I am not suggesting that this is something good or something I do, hell no! By saying that, I am not literally implying women are objects, geez, I'm merely pointing out how a lack of principles can result in terrible behaviors and, yes, women are free to go get their gropings if they so please, but come on, this is exactly where it all begins. Don't focus on the wording, I'm a foreigner and some subtle things related to language can slip by, but listen to my argument here, I'm not saying anything too preposterous.

But of course... this is the internet, I should have guessed it would be interpreted that I endorse objectifying women and I probably do it all the time.

Ha! Yes, indeed, it certainly seems to be that way. I agree to some extent, but I can't help to enjoy some SoaD here and there.

Two important things:
Firstly, bonzo, you're a douche. What do you expect him to think? You expect him to not be a douche, like you are so evidently and repeatedly broadcasting you are.
Secondly, Dream, lets not conflate a douchebag's music tastes with bad music: I happen to like SoaD.

BonzoWhale, your opinions on women, romance, "self-respect" and objectification are terrible and you're a terrible person for having them. This is objective truth. Trust me. I'm a Doktor.

Everyone else, we're no longer talking about Bonzo's (terrible) opinions. Yes, I know they're terrible, you know they're terrible, SCIENCE knows they're terrible, and one day, even he may know they're terrible, and look back on this moment in shame, and hang his head, and walk out into the wilderness to cleanse himself of his sins, and be eaten by coyotes.

But until then I think we're in the music forum, yeah?

I'm not a douche. You may disagree with me, it's just an opinion, and there's also the chance that I'm not wording myself right so I sound like a douche, but you'd have to know me to have a valid point in saying I'm a terrible person. Take it or leave it, it's the same.

But I agree, this is a music forum and there is no point discussing other things, so forget I said anything and move along.
