You know what they say: taking naps is a pastime activity.

System Of A Down has continued their run as one of the biggest rock bands on the planet despite not releasing new music since 2005’s Hypnotize. From selling out short tours to headlining the biggest festivals in the world, it’s impossible to deny the power of their longstanding hits.

One of their biggest is “Toxicity,” a 2001 track that accompanied “Chop Suey” on Toxicity and recently broke 300M views on YouTube. To make sure the jam lives on through the younger generations, SOAD guitarist Shavo Odadjian brought it to his son’s preschool classroom.

In a mini jam session that includes a tiny voice just out of frame yelling “rock & roll,” Shavo is seen strumming the song’s iconic riffs with his son shredding on an electric guitar alongside him. Watch the adorable video below:
