System of a Down: Bounce Meaning
I went out on a date
With a girl, a bit late
She had so many friends
Gliding through many hands
I brought my pogo stick
Just to show her a trick
She had so many friends
Gliding through many hands

Hmmm I think that this song is a cross between an actual storyline and sillyness. Now I think that it was about having sex with many women (pogo stick heheh) and the "bounce" part probably describes wild sex. However I think the song is put in a very comical way, so I wouldn't bother pondering over it. *wink*

This song is in fact about sex and heroine both together. Think about it, a syringe for a drug looks like a pogo stick and how the heroine effects the hormones making the user want to have sexual contact with another.

A lot of you see it as a song about heroin, and you may be right. I think it's about a guy and a girl and a lot of her friends having sex. It does say he went out late with a girl and she had so many friends. the chorus clearly is talking about sexual intercourse. And yes a pogo stick resembles a needle, but i think they are referring to a dick here. and is passed around, but the lyrics say "gliding through many hands" not passing. I think gliding through many hands referrs to a guy getting a hand job from many of the girls.

It's about casual sex. People going out and just fucking everyone... "un-announced twister games, all players with no names"
Meaningless empty sex. It's a bit of a political statement about how the media portrays that if you aren't in a comitted relationship and you aren't out having heaps of sex your life is meaningless. Serj said so himself.

Yeah actually i think this song is about an adventure of one of the group members. He went on a date with girlfriend but there was a surprise waiting for him. "Twister games" You know that twister is a game which many ppl are very close and in different positions (yeah it's about sex) "Gliding through many hands" ppl touching her. "All players with no names" That guy doesn't even know thease ppl but he have sex with them. "Just one pogo stick" Says he was the only man in there. The "pogo stick" is (sorry mum) penis. I think that after reading this i don't have to explain "Bounce, Jump, Up, Down" and "It was so exotic" :D
It has two meanings:
1. (Child) It's about something that happened on Serj's childhood. He got a real pogo stick and he show to his girlfriend and she had so many friends, and he could make a trick with the pogo stick and he showed it to her and her friends. Then hi was jumping with it and the friends of his girl friends spread out, leaving space to him to jump and bounce, then he lent the toy to them.
2. (Adult) I know that the song has a sex meaning by the part that says "gliding through many hands" meaning that they masturbated Serj's "pogo stick". In this meaning is about an orgy, he fuck all them.

"twister" is the reference of an orgy and "pogo stick" is the reference of his "dong", if you will, "one pogo" means one dong "jump bounce etc." means girl "bouncing" on his "pogo stick" and i dont know wat everyones saying how this was akward its really not but ya the songs about boikin a girl

"once again this song is about nothing."- Daron Malakian
XD i dont think this song is about "nothing" but i wanted to say that.
I think it generally describe a type of person (someone that likes to party, have sexual intercourse, and do drugs), like many of System Of A Down songs, it have a broad range of meanings, I can't say this means that, if I did, that would be to bias. But I have a specific interest in the meanings they have. I'm going to explain each of the three I have mention:
Sexual Intercourse: Jump, bounce, pogo. All are references of the meaning of having sex.
Party: The bouncing and saying only one pogo stick references to the person parting, as they jump it's like having a pogo stick for legs.
Drugs: Players with no names, dealers of drugs, that is all I see about drugs in this song.

This song is about giant sex orgies.
"JUMP! POGO POGO POGO!"
Think of a girl, going up and down, on a mans lap.
"But just 1 pogo stick"
Theres only 1 man, and a ton of girls.

Uh, heroin doesn't cause sexual stimulation in fact its the opposite... fucking 13 year olds

I think this song is about an orgy but as has only one man represented by the pogo stick (his penis) the rest are women. "Only one pogo stick". with other comments like lay you out touching behind etc it shows relevance to sex. Also passing one pogo stick through all the hands shows the man in control. Although it could be regarded as drug related, referring to a needle.

This song is about sex, I saw an interview with Serj in the past and he basically said it was about sex.
anonymous Jul 29th 2007, 19:23 report
Yes the song is about sex. The only thing is, however, it's not an orgy 'cause orgies are group sex (meaning several couples) and he's talking about only himself pleasing several girls. To be honest, it's called "gangbangs".
anonymous Apr 30th 2007, 03:31 report
yes,yes indeed, good song
its about an orgy yep an orgy, "I went out on a date with a girl a bit late, she had so many friends" refers to lots of girls in orgy "I brought my pogo stick just to show here a trick" refers to penis (pogo stich = penis
yeah you can figure the rest out, its self explanatory
anonymous Aug 18th 2006, 15:59 report
Ok honestly if you couldnt figure out that this was about sex the first time you listened to it....You don't deserve to listen to it..."ooo I like to spread you out, touching whoevers behind" plus the girl had so many friends....But just one pogo stick (as in only one penis).....Unannounced twister game...Its kinda obvious if you ask me
