With nearly 40 million record sales, three albums topping the Billboardcharts, a Grammy
win and a legion of fans, System Of A Down are one of the biggest metal bandson the
planet. At their core has always been Serj Tankian, whose journey from thestreets of
Beirut to rock superstardom is as remarkable and unlikely as you'll get.
By dint of luck, circumstance, struggle, and more than a little talent, Serj hashad the
chance to live an extraordinary life. In Down With the System, he retracesthis
remarkable and unlikely journey, and explores what it's taught him – aboutmusic, about
art, about activism, and about himself. From teaming up with Tom Morello to pushsocial
justice causes on unsuspecting metalheads, arguing with LAPD officers over thebest way
to quell his rioting fans, and traveling with Anthony Bourdain through Armeniaone meal at
a time, Down With the System is an immigrant's tale, anactivist's awa­kening, and rock
memoir unlike any other.
