System of a Down Information Continued
In 1998, System of a Down released their debut album, System of a Down. After the release of the album, System of a Down toured extensively, opening for Slayer before making their way to the second stage of Ozzfest. Following Ozzfest, they toured with Fear Factory and Incubus before headlining the Sno-Core tour with Puya, Mr. Bungle and Incubus providing support.
System of a Down's big break arrived when their sophomore album Toxicity debuted at #1 on the American and Canadian charts, eventually achieving multi-platinum certification. The album has since sold 6 million copies worldwide. It was still on top in America on the week of the September 11, 2001 attacks and the political environment caused by the attacks added to the controversy surrounding their hit single "Chop Suey!" causing it to be taken off the radio as it contained politically sensitive lyrics at the time. Regardless, the video gained constant play on MTV as did the second single, "Toxicity". All four bandmembers are of Armenian ancestry and are widely known for their outspoken social and political views found in the majority of their songs.
In 2006, System of a Down will be touring in Ozzfest. They will be headlining the tour when Ozzy Osbourne is unavailable to appear.
