Tankian: 'Politics Affects Everything'

Subscribe To:

SYSTEM OF A DOWN star SERJ TANKIAN hopes his band's outspoken music will encourage fans to get more involved with politics.

Tankian, who co-founded activist website AXIS OF JUSTICE with AUDIOSLAVE's TOM MORELLO, is proud of his band's social stance.

And he's disgusted by the number of people who refuse to take an interest in political issues, despite the fact they affect every aspect of life.

He says, "The word 'politics' is a funny thing.

"A lot of people say 'I'm not political' and they don't realise that, in today's world, economics, politics, class struggle, are all tied together.

"It affects us directly, whether we like it or not, or whether we want to pay attention to it or not.

"Our lives are political, and System of a Down is a band that talks about politics and has very strong points of view."
