The title of "Steal This Album!" (2002) is a reference to Abbie Hoffman's "Steal This Book."
System Of A Down Has experienced several times online leaking that happened to "Steal This Album!" (2002), which on the internet was called "Toxicity 2," and "Mesmerize" (2005).
Their song, "Soil," tells bitterly about Serj's friend from his previous band, Soil, who committed suicide.
Daron Malakian's father designed the artwork for both the Hypnotize and Mezmerize albums, as well as that of several Ibanez Icemans owned by Daron.
The name "System Of A Down" is adapted from a poem guitarist/vocalist Daron Malakian wrote entitled "Victims Of The Down". Bassist Shavo Odadjian thought that the word "System" appealed to a much broader audience than "Victims" .
