Out Of Line

Songfacts®:

  • Black Sabbath bassist Geezer Butler contributes to this track. "When you listen to the record, you can feel Geezer's presence in 'Out of Line,'" vocalist David Draiman told Artist Direct. "The low end and bass line on that song is unlike any other track on the album. That's him. There's nobody who can do what he does the way he does it."
  • The song also features vocals by System of a Down frontman Serj Tankian. Draiman donated a portion of the proceeds from both this track and "Opinion" to Tankian's Axis of Justice organization.
