System of a Down’s Daron Malakian mourns Charles Manson’s death

Posted by on November 20, 2017

While most of us have been celebrating the death of Charles Manson, there’s at least one person who is saddened by his loss. System of a Down guitarist Daron Malakian publicly revealed his thoughts about the passing of the leader of the ‘60s murderous cult at 83 on his social media page.

Malakian expressed:

“Very sad to hear the news about Charles Manson’s death. During the time I was writing the Toxicity album, Manson’s interviews and music were a big influence on me as an artist. I titled the song #ATWA after Manson’s environmental organization. My interest was in the way he articulated his thoughts and his views on society, not in the murders. The painting in this photo is one I asked my dad to paint with the Charles Manson theme, which I later used as the art for the #ScarsOnBroadway song ‘Fucking’ that was released through limited vinyl. #charlesmanson #mansonfamily”

Later, he commented under the same post:

“If all you know about Manson is what you’ve be sold by the media , I don’t blame you for you negative comments. But the other side of Manson was that he was a song writer who’s song “Look at your Game” was covered by Guns n Roses. Manson also had very valid view points on the society and the environment that even some of you people who are calling me disgusting couldn’t argue with if you took the time to look into his interviews. I would say you would be the disgusting ones if you disagree with him on some of these topics. If Manson was just some idiot who killed people he wouldn’t inspire me in any way. I don’t back murders or murderers in any way shape or form!!!!!Manson was a Genius who could articulate his thoughts in very clever ways. That was the Manson who affected me as an artist. For all of you who say your happy he is dead and he should burn in your imaginary Hell, Your the ones who should be ashamed of yourselves. You seam to be just as bad with your thoughts as the murderers you same that you hate so much!!!!”

    This is demented. I wouldn’t listen to System of a Down if you paid me, and I damn sure won’t after seeing this sick fuck post this message. Isn’t it bad enough we have degenerate rednecks out there who worship Hitler and are proud neo-Nazis, one of which killed a woman in his car because she was “liberal”? And to have certain equally deranged types who refuse to recognize the need for better gun control laws to the point of defending mass murderers? Many of these monsters posted after the Orlando massacre that it was the right thing to do because it was an LGBT nightclub.
    So this guy wants us to “appreciate” Charles Manson and mourn him. Malakian even goes so far to claim that the negative views of Manson are the product of media. You are a seriously ill person, and I hope your band fails due to your psychotic position. There was nothing about Manson to admire in the slightest damn bit. Do not patronize this Malakian maniac by buying his music or attending SOAD shows. What a sicko.

  • If someone Murders your family Daron,I guess it will be ok,if he/she can make music,and cares about the environment…..makes perfect sense.
