System of a Down quickly rose to fame in the early 2000s, but an internal creative differences dispute among bandmates has prevented new music from the band for more than a decade.

What? Literally zero mention of John Dolmayan? One of the best drummers in the world and you failed to even say his name in a 20 minute video? Are you kidding me? SOAD is nothing without all of them, and you mentioned all except John wtf

I was looking at Wikipedia and saw the narrator practically used that as a script.

Some interesting bits, but there’s no excuse for failing to recognize the unique and rhythmically amazing abilities of John Dolmayan.

Daron: The one responsible for soad being on hiatus is Serj. But he's cool. Still tho.
Shavo: Yeah. We're still good friends, but except for him, the entire band wants this to happen.
Serj: I'm sorry I caused this much trouble. I hope you, the fans, can forgive me for ruining this great band.
John: Man, I love comic books.

I met these guys in early 2000 at a Rock of Ages record store, signing posters and stuff. This was right before they blew up and became huge. I attended a show later that night at Harpo's (SOAD, Fear Factory, Zak Wilde) and I remember smoking a cigarette outside in the parking lot next to their tour bus and the drummer was inside, alone. I talked to him for a few minutes through a small window on the bus and I asked him why he was by himself and he said that Detroit scared the shit out of him and he didn't feel safe leaving the tour bus.

I told my daughter if she got straight A’s on her report card, I’d take her to the nearest SOAD show. San Antonio! I’m still proud of her for making those grades, because dad loved the show the most!

I like how everyone in the comments is yelling at the uploader for not mentioning the drummer's name, and not once has the uploader replied back to any of these comments.
I wonder why that is?

Come hear the sad story of a band who continues to make lots of money touring without having to record any new albums

So, Daron is a control freak and Serj is just too passive. Bummer. Also, side project bands are always a bad sign.......all members not getting paid equally is never good. Its just too bad, One of the greatest, unique bands ever.
