[System Of A Down]

Chop Suey! è il primo singolo estratto da Toxicity, il secondo album dei System Of A Down pubblicato nel 2001. Lo stesso album si trovava al primo posto delle classifiche americane nella settimana degli attacchi alle torri gemelle ma, a causa di riferimenti al suicidio presenti nel testo, molte stazioni radiofoniche furono intimate a non passare il singolo proprio per rispetto di quanto successo l'11 settembre (il titolo originale della canzone, prima di essere incisa, era proprio "Suicide").
