Shoutout to Danny and Lisa for keeping my boy away from the strangest places.

Real GOATs

@norathecatwitch3601

If my kid ever has friends named Danny and Lisa... I'll know they're safe.

@paulkauss9346

It's rock, it's reggae, it's polka, a little rap, a little jazz, it's almost too much and I like it, what ever it is.

@irinaras1621

When somebody asks me for a loud party music recommend, this is my first pick. Always.

@omamero

System Of A Down is the only band i know that is able to play so many different genres of music in one song, and still make it sound good.
