If I ignore their liberal/socialist/communist politics I fucking love their older stuff (eg self-titled, Steal This Album, Toxicity).  I appreciate what they're trying to accomplish trying to bring attention to the Armenian genocide since my stepmom is the daughter of an Armenian-immigrant mother and father, but I can't stand SOAD's politics.  How do you reconcile your politics with music?  Most liberal pansy ass groups don't sound this good.

I can ignore the politics and listen to music with ease.

I like a lot of what SOAD has put out.  Toxicity is probably my favorite CD from them.

I think they suck ass and sound like shit, but of course, YMMV.



The "why do they always send the poor" song is really fucking annoying
Link Posted: 12/17/2009 7:30:33 PM EDT
The music by itself is bad ass
Link Posted: 12/17/2009 7:32:04 PM EDT
Political affiliations aside, they are still the suck.

i REALLY like their slower, non liberal / hate America message sending songs.

the rest of their songs are just a bunch of fucktards slamming on instruments and alot of additional ruckus.

Lonely Day

SoaD is fuckin savage.
one of my faves, by far :headbang:

Serj has an amazing voice, the music is brilliant. I wish the drummer would shut up with the screaming though.
Link Posted: 12/17/2009 7:35:39 PM EDT
I haven't heard many of their songs, but judging by the ones I have heard, I cannot fathom how anyone can find pleasure in listening to that noise.

Without a doubt, the worst group of noise makers I've ever heard in my life.

The lead singer needs to suck start a 12ga.
Link Posted: 12/17/2009 7:35:58 PM EDT
I don't care about the politics, but the music and singing itself sucks. Big time.

I agree 100% I saw rage against the machine in socal a couple of years ago,and the ''people of the sun'' were the ones cleaning up the trash afterwards.Slightly ironic

They were awesome when I was 15.

This.



but i like the guitar riffs, so I tune out vocals when they come on the radio.
Link Posted: 12/17/2009 7:40:36 PM EDT
Love the music and ignore their message. I do it with a lot of musicians. Life would get stale listening to Toby Keith and Ted Nugent all the time.

This is pretty much where I am.  I just kind of ignore their actual lyrics.  I hear Serj's voice, but don't listen to what he says.  Their guitar work fucking rocks though.

If a group spends time working against the things that I hold important, they don't get a dime of my hard-earned cash.

Seriously, why would I add one dime to benefit their lifestyle?

"why do they always send the poor" might be the dumbest thing ever said since "what's so civil about war anyway".

it's a volunteer army.

I have no knowledge of which you speak...  I would NEVER download a discography from a group.  Actually in the past I did actually buy a couple of their CD's, so...
Link Posted: 12/17/2009 7:52:26 PM EDT
The difference between SOAD and Rage is that Rage can actually play.Other than that, both bands are hypocritical,spoiled,elitist cocksuckers.

And it has the one good song they do. The one song that we can all agree on. Pizza kicks ass.

Link Posted: 12/17/2009 7:54:37 PM EDT
If they would just shut up and sing, everything would be fine.



Link Posted: 12/17/2009 7:55:50 PM EDT
Funny, SOAD came on the second I clicked on this topic.

I like most of their stuff.

I never liked anything they did and I didn't know about their politics until now.

eta:  RATM are intolerable pinko commie faggots also, but at least they have some damn good tunes.

I like a few of their songs, but a lot I can't stand if I actually start to listen to the words.
Link Posted: 12/17/2009 8:14:18 PM EDT
Their stuff is much better when covered by hot chicks in wifebeaters on violins....

Don't believe me?
See for yourself..

I like them havent really heard any new stuff. But the old stuff is good aerials is one of my fav.

Take them by their filthy nostrils


Put them up in doggy hostels.

Do not agree with their politics at all but LOVE the band. I also like Serj Tankian's  (lead singer of SOAD) solo stuff.
