Description

With nearly 40 million record sales, three albums topping the Billboard charts, a Grammy
win and a legion of fans, System Of A Down are one of the biggest metal bands on the
planet. At their core has always been Serj Tankian, whose journey from the streets 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 has had the
chance to live an extraordinary life. In Down With the System, he retraces this
remarkable and unlikely journey, and explores what it's taught him – about music, about
art, about activism, and about himself. From teaming up with Tom Morello to push social
justice causes on unsuspecting metalheads, arguing with LAPD officers over the best way
to quell his rioting fans, and traveling with Anthony Bourdain through Armenia one meal at
a time, Down With the System is an immigrant's tale, an activist's awa­kening, and rock
memoir unlike any other.
