System of a Down

Shavo Odadjian

In 1995, Odadjian became the permanent bassist of the band. They named themselves System of a Down, after a poem written by band mate Daron Malakian entitled "Victims of a Down." Odadjian was not keen on being labeled "Victims," and thought that the word "System" appealed to a much broader audience. The band has stated that they also wanted their CDs to be placed in stores alongside their favorite band, Slayer. It was at this time that Odadjian passed on his original managerial responsibilities to Velvet Hammer Music.
