System of a Down – The Metro

Song: The Metro
Cover Artist: System of a Down
Album (Year): Dracula 2000 Soundtrack (2000)
Original Artist: Berlin


Today you get ‘The Metro’ by 80’s new wave band Berlin. This song epitomises the new wave, synth heavy sound and almost defines the genre all by itself.

While System of a Down has gained all sorts of popularity in the past ten years. This song on the Dracula 2000 soundtrack (and later on the Not Another Teen Movie soundtrack) predated all their popularity and hinted at things to come from the band.

    this band’s top song would have to be toxicity. I have heard they used to be were in a different band named soil which most people dont know. Thats when Tankian, Odadjian, and Malakian formed system of a down but was first called victims of a down… I dunno why though. Their roulette song isnt about playing roulette at all which was a bit disappointing as I’m a huge fan of roulette. but still it’s a very chilled out song in contrast to toxicity. although I love both songs.

    Yes, but Soil never recorded anything and eventually broke up. There is now another, completely unrelated, band named Soil out of Chacago, Ill.
