    Default System Of A Down REUNION for 2015

    Eventhough they reunited back in 2010 it'll be cool to witness at Coachella. Plus I heard they're currently recording a new LP. Thoughts?

    Did they split? I just saw them last year at the bowl.

    It was good but I would give them a sub-headliner spot at the most.

    Shavo came out with a huge rant that Serj has mainly been concentrating on his solo stuff and not really caring about SOAD. The Bowl show I believe was the only SOAD show last year. Other than that they really haven't been writing new music and playing shows.

    This wouldn't work. Someone said sub-headliner, and that would be cool but those guys have so much drama between them that I'd rather they not be at the festival

    Having close ties to the System boys....I've heard Goldenvoice tell them "they're not right for Coachella." Something of that nature...then again that's what I heard yeaaaaaars ago, so at this point I don't know what I remember anymore =P Something I should clarify before posting I guess. Ohh well...

    if anything SOAD would be a decent co-headliner with the Foo Fighters, i mean i think that would draw a bigger crowd than the Stone Roses/Blur

    i know you're right and i knew that was a shitty comparison, i just would like to see a different genre headline coachella than their 5 year running "Mainstream Rock Band" "Kinda indie but getting up there band" and their "Hip Hop/Rap/Foreign band/group" as headliners

    Dude, I feel like people who dislike them in large responded to their popularity around Toxicity. They remind me a ton of Dead Kennedys at their best. I saw SOAD once, back in 2002, and they were incredibly good.

    I don't have a problem with them, I just think they'd be a better fit for Lolla over Coachella.

    I think they'd be a huge surprise at Coachella. But they really were a great heavy band. When I saw them they had Clutch open, and I had no idea what the hell they were. System of a Down was even heavier and crazier. I've listened to them recently and they're as odd and fun as they were ten years ago.

    I rather get a Sepultura reunion, with Max. I believe only Coachella can achieve such feat.

    I saw them like 3 years ago in Vegas and they were awesome. Couldn't have picked a better setlist.

    I would be tempted to go both weekends just to see if they'd switch up setlists. There are so many songs I'd want to hear if that happened.

    They'll get a real nice audience at Coachella.... My friend started bumping SOAD tracks at the end of Sunday Wknd 1, lot 8 ave 101, our car was parked right in front of the entrance... we literally had 20+ random people join our campsite and just started dancing.. pretty epic.

    Nice way to wrap the weekend..

    System puts on a great show. I saw them in 2002 and apart of the Ozzfest run they went on before they went on their Hiatus. Sound was great and they are very much in your face throughout. Serj doesn't do a great job of speaking or interjecting with the crowd, but this made for more music which is always nice. The right fit for Coachella? I do not think so.

    My blast from the past, I've seen SOAD 4 times (not since 2000, I think?). Their Sno-Core tour in 2000 had them as the closer with Incubus (meh) and Mr. Bungle as their openers.

    They're a good band that unfortunately gets lumped in with a lot of nu-metal shit. This is an example of their horrible nu metal shit, but I still fucking love this song.

    They were just weirder and more interesting than the bands that they were tied together with.
