Waterstones Says

Tracing a path from the streets of Beirut to the world's biggest rock stadiums, this dynamic and event-filled memoir from the legendary System of a Down frontman recounts a life of activism, adventure and musical innovation.

The incredible first memoir by System Of A Down frontman Serj Tankian

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.

“A journey through Armenia and the arrival of System of a Down”

I've loved System of a Down since my teens, hearing their self titled album blew my mind and I was a fan ever since. They're still on my Spotify rotation consistently! I knew I fair bit about the Armenian... More

“A brilliant, funny, unsettling, and positive glimpse into Serj Tankian’s life experience”
