It is probably fair to say that the most beloved System of a Down song is that of “Chop Suey!”. Since its release back in 2001 (as a song off of the band’s studio album Toxicity), several fans have taken to covering the track (some providing fascinating stylistic spins).
One such spin comes in the form of a “Chop Suey!” cover that Instagram user Ishmael Jones created. Rather than play off the track’s nu metal instrumentation and Serj‘s aggressive vocal presentation, Ishmael re-creates the System of a Down song as an RnB track and… it sounds really fucking awesome. Like… Jones may be giving System of a Down a run for their money with this remix.
Of course, we are always going to love the original version of the song, but Ishmael’s remix is truly jaw-dropping and impressive. You can find a link to check out Ishmael’s RnB remix of System of a Down’s “Chop Suey!” below. We also included a link to another video that involves someone reacting to Jone’s remix (and the dude’s reaction is awesome). Let us know what you think of this RnB take on the System of a Down classic.
When it comes to other System of a Down stories, Serj has shared that he would love for fans to stop screaming “Chop Suey!” lyrics at him in public. When it came to the release of the band’s album Toxicity, Serj says that it was one hell of a stressful time for him. And did you know that Serj also did not want to create the System of a Down albums Mezmerize and Hypnotize? You can find the respective links to each of these stories below.
