Wake up! System of a Down‘s “Chop Suey!” video has officially hit one billion views on YouTube.

The clip passed the milestone over the Thanksgiving weekend, 11 years after it was initially uploaded to the video sharing site.

“Chop Suey!” was the lead single off System of a Down’s 2001 album, Toxicity. It gave the group their first Grammy nomination.

System of a Down returned earlier in November with their first new songs in 15 years, “Protect the Land” and “Genocidal Humanoidz.” The tracks were released in support of the SOAD members’ ancestral homeland of Armenia amid its war with Azerbaijan.
