After Armenia received its best result ever  this year with Sirusho, the world-famous rock band System of a Down shown a keen interest in representing the country in Russia next year. However, the soloist of the American band, Serj Tankian, has openly stated in a recent visit in Finland that this will be under one condition: if they will be able to use Eurovision as a way to make the much-debated Armenian Genocide issue known. “Esc would be an excellent way to make this theme known. We must seriously think of this.” said Tankian in response to a question posed by Finnish News Agency.


With previous song titles such as Violent Pornography, This Cocaine Makes Me Feel Like I’m On This Song, Peephole and Fuck the System, System of a Down would perhaps be censored by the EBU rule about bad language that previously forced Silvia Night to officially change the lyrics of her song, while the EBU would probably choose to believe the political message was a reference to ancient Armenian bedtime stories or an ending relationship.
