System of a Down is a very influential band for a lot of people. They have such a unique sound, and that enabled them to break into the mainstream. I can remember when they blew up lots of folks who didn’t even like that genre of music liked them. They’re transcendent.
Such influence can reach even the most niche of artists. Artists like Michalina Malisz who beautifully plays SOAD riffs on a hurdy-gurdy. A hurdy-gurdy is a stringed instrument that looks somewhat like a guitar, only you produce the sound by turning a crank. Pretty wild.
