System Of A Down – Chop Suey Drum Cover

(Whoopsh~)Top of the morning to ya laddies, my name is Jacksepticeye and welcome to my first proper actual drumming video. I know I did a vlog a little while ago, whenever this was actually recorded, and I played around with them a small bit, but that was just kind of me messing around and whatever came to my head at the time and just showing you how they sounded. But this time I’m actually gonna sit down and play a song from start to finish and this is something I’ve wanted to do for a really really long time, and a lot of people have been asking for it ever since they found out that I played drums, and now that I actually have a kit, a lot of people have been asking for it again, so I’m gonna try it. I don’t know how this is gonna go; I don’t even know how to start recording it, I don’t know how any of this sort of stuff works, so, it’ll hopefully get better as time goes on, um the-the visuals of the video and like the camera angles and the sound and trying to mix it all together and make it an actual watchable experience, but I’m gonna start off the-the drum cover type videos with a song that means a lot to me, which is Chop Suey by System of a Down and the reason I’m- well- I wanted to do an intro to this video as well and not just a song, that’s going to come um you’ll be able to skip ahead to actually watch that if you don’t care about any of this stuff, but the reason I’m doing Chop Suey, in particular, is because that was the first song- I had an interest in drums before, and I had an interest in just music and everything already, but Chop Suey was the first heavy metal song that I ever actually enjoyed. I remember I was at home one day and Kerrang! TV was on, and they used to just play like heavier types of songs and then- I can’t remember what other music channels I would watch, but they would proliferate some metal in? Um… System of a Down were considered some sort of like, alternative metal kind of band at the time; really weird classification but they kind of blend it in and bled into the other channels, and this song came on and it was so fucking weird and wacky the first time I heard it and it just- it just hooked into me. Like some of the people had heard the songs are like “What the hell is this?” But to me it’s just like- it’s stuck in me and I was like “This is cool! I really like this!” and I used to listen to it anytime it came on, with my friend who was kind of getting into metal music at the same time, so it was the first proper metal song that we had heard and really enjoyed, cuz everything else at the time sounded just like *Death metal voice scratching noises* and we didn’t get it. Um… Nowadays I love that stuff but Chop Suey was my first foray into heavy metal music, and was my first foray into the style of drumming that I ended up having as I was progressing, and it was really like the stepping stone for everything that would come after that and- there was a funny time- My brother – my oldest brother – He used to play drums a long time ago, and he played a lot of different bands and a lot of different types of music. But he came over to visit from England one time Uh, he came back for like a few days and this song came on and I was like- I wanted to impress my brother because he always seemed super cool to me and this song came on the TV and I kept thinking in my head “I wonder if he knows this song? I wonder if he likes this song?” So I turned up the song really really loud on the TV, and my brother heard it in the kitchen and came running in, grabbed the remote off me, turned it up even more and started like head-banging all around the room, and he was surprised that I liked this song, and I was surprised that he liked the song, and then that started off this like, really great bonding session between us, that- *sigh* I dunno, it like- that was like one really common ground that we finally got on board with, because before that we- we never really had something to talk about like that interested both of us? And then, the next time he came back- or maybe it was that trip? um another time he came back he gave me that album, the- The Toxicity album and I- that- that’s like one of my favorite albums ever made, even today. I love every song on that album and it’s just so good- it’s timeless. I could listen to that over and over again, so that’s why I’m doing this song today so, um, I’m just gonna get into it. Sorry for all the rambling but I felt like it was a A good story to tell, so. Let’s go drumming!

  1. Your bluffing system if a down is not even close to metal bro its hard rock times have changed rather listen to parkway drive or something

  2. Chop suey was the song that got me liking heavy metal. well, system of a down because they are the first heavy metal band that appealed to me. Nice to know you like it too 🙂

  3. Bro I remember watching this video the second it was uploaded , and now its already "2 years ago" ….. yikes chief it seems like it was yesterday

  4. Anybody remember this video?

    I actually decided to get an electric drum set years ago when this video came out

    (I still have it today)

  5. 4:17. You should release the entire video from this angle. I like the bass drum shaking the camera. It looks rad as fuck.

  6. I hated this song. When I first saw this I was like ick… And then I watched him play it and something shifted in my mind. I like this. I wish he would do more with his drums. 🙂

  7. This video was my introduction to metal, I saw this video when it came out and noticed that it sounded vaguely familiar and listened to the actual song and later found out that my dad listens to this stuff and listened to it when I was little. Fast forward 2 years from this video being released and now I can't stop listening to slipknot.

  8. I love it when I discover other people that enjoy metal music but I love them even more when I find they like my favourite band!!! All I hear when I listen to metal is the drums in the background and how that beat is created! Awesome playing jack!

  9. So, it's popping up in suggestions again? It's because I looked up the sauce ingredients for Chicken Chop Suey last night isn't it? Not bad though, pretty good actually.

  10. I’m just wondering what was the first song you fellow commenters learned, my first was lonely boy on guitar
