"Toxicity" is a song by System of a Down. It was released as a Rock Band downloadable single on August 5, 2008. As of December 30, 2008, this song is no longer available for purchase.

There is lots of room for interpretation in the lyrics, as the toxins could refer to the city of Los Angeles and the Hollywood lifestyle, but could also be a commentary on the music industry, religion, corruption, drugs or any number of things that the band feels is poisoning people.

During a performance at the 2005 Download Festival, Daron Malakian said that the song was about Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD), a condition that causes a person to have trouble concentrating.
