“Aerials” by System of a Down is one of those songs that just gets me every time I listen to it. While the seemingly cryptic lyrics may deter some people from the song, I find them essential. The instrumentals on the track are what sold me on the song. I’d say that this is probably my favorite System of a Down track, along with “B.Y.O.B.”.
Here’s a quick history of the song:
“Aerials” is the third single released by System of a Down off their second full-length album, Toxicity. The song was released on June 11, 2002.
