Since their debut in 1998, System Of A Down have released five studio albums with three No. 1 debuts on the Billboard Top 200. To date, the band has sold over 31 million copies worldwide. They’ve written and recorded seven Top 10 radio hits, two of which were chart-topping No. 1’s (2002’s “Aerials” and 2005’s “Hypnotize”).
In 2005, System Of A Down released both Mezmerize and Hypnotize in two installments as a dual album in a single year. Each debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard Top 200 and on charts around the world, achieving the rare feat of having two No. 1 albums in the same calendar year. “B.Y.O.B.” (Bring Your Own Bombs) was the first single released from Mezmerize and earned the band a Grammy for Best Hard Rock Performance.
