“Chop Suey!“ is the first single from System of a Down’s second album Toxicity. The single was released in September 2001 and earned the band its first Grammy nomination. The song’s working title was “Suicide”; the band members claim the change was not caused by pressure from their record company. The words “We’re rolling ‘Suicide’“ can still be heard faintly in the album versions’s opening seconds — though this intro is only on certain pressings of the album. The song is included as a playable track in the music video games Rock Band 2 and Rock Band Unplugged. Read on...

Song lines: ♪ You wanted to ... I cry when angels deserve to die ... Why'd you leave the keys upon the table
