Top Ten Best Serj Tankian Songs

The Top Ten

1 Empty Walls

The best song he has ever sung. It is just amazing and has every aspect of music required to make the song an amazing hit and work of art. Easily the best song he made

Hands down. THE BEST SONG IN EXISTENCE

Agreed with most people here. This is by far the best song by Serj. It's also the very first song I've ran into, But I've always listened to the singer's music for a really long time while in System Of A Down. Thumbs up for this song.

This song is simply the best song composed by Serj Tankian.

It brings so much sorrow.

His songs are really awesome.

2 Harakiri

Really good overall. Great theme, instrumental and vocals. Beats out Empty Walls any day

Simply Amazing! A really good song from the new album. Serj overdid himself this time

The music video is just... A kick in the ribs, its amazing and depressing about how we in the end are committing harakiri ourselves by destroying the world and war is killing each other.

Best lyrics I have ever listened to!
Even better than empty walls

3 Sky is Over

Serj did not leave System of a Down. They are working on a new album now that they hope will be the new System of a Down for this generation! Be happy because System of a Down is still going strong! 2012

Awesome song! Serj must be sad to leave SOAD

My favorite song by Serj Tankian! Should be number 1. Empty Walls is a great song, but a little overrated.

I think it's the best!

4 Money

It was a tie between this song and Empty Walls, but I chose Money because it's more underrated. So, Money it is.

Such genuine lyrics about today's so-called leaders.
If you don't get it, watch the video. There's a reason why the video got banned.

Money is an amazing song! So good. In my honest opinion, this is one of my favorite songs by Serj Tankian of all time. Should be at least in the top 5. If you haven't heard this song yet, give it a listen!

Really cool song. Should be in the top 3 at least. One of his best songs ever! The music video for this song is one of the best music videos I've ever watched. Vote for this awesome song!

5 Cornucopia

This song reminded me about System of a Down... Very remindable, I like System of a Down concert, so I don't want to pass this

This song is extremly catchy! And is a very good opening song for harakiri

This is my favorite song by him. I think it should be in the top 3. Please vote!

6 Gate 21

Gate 21 and its rock remix are both just incredible. Empty walls and sky is over are awesome too. I had heard empty walls on the radio but could never find the name of the song and years later I finally found it and discovered who serj was and that he had music and then I realized he was the singer of my favorite band! I'm obsessed with him and System of a Down and I even went to their concert in albuquerque! Some people don't understand the lyrics to System of a Down's music. I'm only a 16 year old girl but I tell people their music is open to interpretation which is the best part of System of a Down!

This is honestly the best piece of music he has ever created. I'm a huge System of a Down fan, I've listen to all there albums and all of Serj's solo albums in their entirety. In my opinon, this is in the top 5 of either, easily. Epic. If you haven't heard it GO LISTEN.

It's a freaking good song seriously, serj tankian is making a very good music. A good harmonic part in this song.

This song is so well written and executed. His live performance was perfect. This is by far his best solo song in my opinion.

7 Lie Lie Lie

The eerie meaning behind the song and behind the music video created for this still gives me chills today. Empty Walls strongly resemble qualities Serj used in System, but this song is no doubt very odd, unconventional, and so damn amazing. "... Broke her little bones on the boulders below, and when she fell, I, smiled... " "Take my hand and let's end it all. " Powerful stuff

Honestly, it's my favorite song by him. It's just so catchy, Serj's singing is amazing as always, the instruments are really good, and the lady who does background vocals sounds good as well.

Possibly second best on album - CaptainComedy17

Great song with very scary lyrics.. wow.. he really out-did himself with this song!

8 Deafening Silence

Very awesome song! Definitely one of my favorite songs by Serj Tankian. My favorite song on Harakiri.

This is my 3rd favorite Serj song, only behind Money and Sky Is Over.

9 Left of Center

Imperfect Harmonies is bad, but some songs in it are good, like Borders Are and Gate 21, but Left Of Center is definitely THE BEST IN THE ALBUM.

BEST SONG FROM IMPERFECT HARMONIES !GREAT SONGS
LYRICS OF SONG IS AMAZING

Why isn't this on the top tens? This song is so amazing. I don't know how gate 21 got on the top tens but this is just an amazing song an should be higher

Love it. Won't call it best but still its awesome

10 The Unthinking Majority

Killer, I don't know why it's not higher on the list. Sweet track!

Of all the songs he's written, this has the best, deepest lyrics, the best melodies, and above all, really reminds me of his old System of a Down songs. (also the video is bad-ass)

This sing is fantastic! I can't don't listen her! It's my favorite sing but I love everything of his sings!

Great song. Empty Walls is his best song, but this one is a close second.

19 Borders Are...

This song features on his new album Imperfect Harmonies so it is not well known, but it really deserves to listen to it because it has a great message - pageg

I'm surprised this isn't in the Top 10. It has such a great tune and deep meaning as well. Such a great song

20 Honking Antelope

great guitar and vocals, and even piano. lyrics are hard to decifer, but song is beautifull altogether.

its tough between honking antelope and empty walls but I think this song is number 1 - shinobi8003045

21 Baby

Nice song because it's remind me about my ex girl friend

22 The Charade

In my opinion I prefer the studio version a bit more than the Elect the Dead symphony version, but they are both amazing!

This is truly an amazing song. Here's my ranking of Elect the Dead:

4) Lie Lie Lie
5) Elect The Dead
6) Baby
7) Saving Us
8) The Unthinking Majority

This song ROCKS! It is a very unique song with a VERY catchy tune. And by the way, this song is calles Ching CHIME not Ching Chang.

26 Disowned Inc.

Great song! Should be a little higher.

27 Forget Me Knot
28 Figure It Out

Let's figure it out! Awesome song! It should be a bit higher, honestly.

29 Yes, It's Genocide
30 Praise the Lord and Pass the Ammunition

Only #25? This song is amazing, the lyrics are on point, the instrumental is awesome and chilling and the song itself shows Serj's vocal capacity. Underrated - andreitudose09

I thought this track would be higher up, the song is so different from the norm it sounds awesome,It conveys a message people are hesitant to say something about.

31 Reconstructive Demonstrations

Blew me away. Especially the bridge because I didn't expect the switch of notes. The first time I heard this song, I was so incredibly awed because the musical composition nearly killed me to the end. I seriously have never listened to anything remotely close to this song. It’s in my top Climate change songs list, for sure.

Best song on the album, besides Gate 21. 40th place?! Seriously? This quite frankly should be at least top 10.

32 Reality TV

What can be better than this song? This song should seriously be on at least 19 or 20, >.< Song is so bloody addicting

Nipples, tounges, testicle, cheeks ^_^ LMFAO

33 Wings of Summer
34 Distant Thing
35 Artsakh
36 Electron
37 Deserving?

Most underrated song ever

38 Gratefully Disappeared

40 Falling Stars
41 Fears
42 Uneducated Democracy
43 Peace Be Revenged
44 Beatus
45 Bird of Paradise
