Serj Tankian Hits Jimmy Kimmel Live

Serj Tankian Hits Jimmy Kimmel Live

Serj Tankian of System of a Down fame, stopped by Jimmy Kimmel Live! last night to perform two songs of his new solo record.  When you have work in the AM it’s tough to stay up for these things, but thank goodness for the great job Kimmel’s team does with getting the videos up on their YouTube Channel in timely order.  One YouTube user comment that made me chuckle, was the one that the person says “what is this a dumbed down version of System of a Down.” This writer’s about to chime in with a “Shouldn’t it be System of the Dumbed Down then?”.

Anyway, ignoring dumb comments from people with no lives, these songs aren’t anything to hate at all. Check them out below:
