No. 22: System of a Down, ‘System of a Down’ – Best Debut Metal Albums

System Of A Down, 'System of a Down'

In the modern era of metal, few bands have pulled off mainstream success and pure weirdness simultaneously. System of a Down released their self-titled debut in 1998 to widespread critical acclaim.

The Armenian-American alternative metal act contains the essential cuts ‘Sugar,’ ‘Suite-Pee,’ ‘Know’ and ‘Spiders.’ System of a Down would reach even bigger heights with ‘Toxicity’ in 2001, the success of which introduced the band’s self-titled masterwork to an even wider audience, allowing ‘System of a Down’ to attain platinum status in the U.S.
