System of a Down singer Serj Tankian published on his Instagram profile the lyrics of “Temper”, a song that was originally recorded for the band’s debut album but has never been released.
System of a Down played the song on some live shows though.
Tankian wrote: “A very early @systemofadown song that was on one of our demos-lyrics below: if you love this song or play along to it and love Trump, you’re a hypocrite-just a simple fact 🙂 ‘Temper'”
He added in the comments: “Let me add that obviously the song was written in the 90s and refers to injustice in the US and injustice by the US via successive Democratic and Republican administrations. I just find the most current one the most repugnant.”
Serj Tankian’s views run counter to those of the band’s drummer John Dolmayan, who praised Donald Trump in recent weeks.
