Top Ten Best Serj Tankian Songs


The Top Ten

1 Empty Walls 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


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.

2 Sky is Over 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.

Best song by Serj...

3 Money 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!

My ranking of Elect The Dead (my opinion):
1) Money
2) Lie Lie Lie
3) Empty Walls
4) Baby
5) Saving Us
6) Elect The Dead
7) Beethoven's C
8) Sky Is Over
9) The Unthinking Majority
10) Feed Us
11) Honking Antelope
12) Praise The Lord And Pass The Ammunition

4 Gate 21 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.

5 Cornucopia 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 Lie Lie Lie 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.

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

7 Deafening Silence 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.

8 Beethoven's C*** Beethoven's C***

Great song. This is possibly my favorite song on Elect the Dead.

9 The Unthinking Majority The Unthinking Majority

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.

My top ten ranking (my opinion):
1) The Unthinking Majority
2) Empty Walls
3) Cornucopia
4) Beethoven's C**t
5) Harakiri
6) Sky Is Over
7) Left Of Center
8) Deafening Silence
9) Saving Us
10) Money

? Butterfly Butterfly

This song is awesome! From the new harakiri album!

? Harakiri Harakiri

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

Hands down THE BEST song not only on the album, but of all of Serj's songs.

11 Feed Us Feed Us

For me it's the best song of serj especially in 2:14 + awesome solo

12 Left of Center 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.


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

The Best Song Of Serj's All Tracks perfect

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

15 Honking Antelope 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

16 The Charade 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!

Very underrated track. It's definitely one of my favorite songs from the album.
