Normally I dig Serj's weird vocals, but for some reason I'm finding the singing on this song to be just grating and massively annoying. Can't really get it into it.

Yea man, agree with zFiruath, I usually enjoy his stuff but this song seemed repetitive and kind of boring. I wonder what the rest of the album sounds like.

It is very repetitive but I didn't hate it. Definitely not the best song I've ever heard though lol.
