Music That Makes You Dumb

The following study reveals if you like Country or Rap music...you're not very smart.

A Cal Tech’s student has come up with a very interesting chart dealing with music smart people listen to. He began the study with the ten most frequent "favorite music" at every college thru the school’s Network Stats page on Facebook.

Then he downloaded the average SAT/ACT score (from CollegeBoard) for students attending every college.

The study plots the average SAT of each "favorite music.”

The students with the higher SAT and ACT scores favored music by Beethoven. Beethoven was way ahead of every other musical artist.

It’s interesting that those who love rap music – had the lowest average ACT/SAT scores.
You’ll be happy to hear that country music fans fared worse than hard rock lovers…but not by much. By translation of this study, if you like Carrie Underwood or Kenny Chesney’s music…..you’re not very smart.

If you like Led Zeppelin – good – your test scores – on average – are about 100 points higher than someone who enjoys Kanye West.

Pearl Jam, Green Day, Rage Against the Machine,  Incubus, Linkin Park, and Nirvana fans have a test score of about 100 points higher than those who favor Nickelback.

Fans of Disturbed, Tool, Metallica, and System of a Down didn’t do much better than those who love country music.

Beyonce and Lil Wayne showed the lowest level scores on this study for SATs – Beyonce average score of 932, Lil Wayne 889, compared to Beethoven music lovers avg. score of 1371.

Weezer, Led Zeppelin, and Chili Peppers fans had the highest avg. test scores in the rock category.

James Patrick's Bio
It was on a shadowy day in spring when my father, Zeus, became glazed over on a fine bottle of God Beer and committed an incomprehensible error in judgment ---- as he had a one-night stand with a unicorn.

9 months later…….I was born unto the world.

Life was rough for young James Patrick, the Unigod, as the other Unicorn’s did not let him play in their Unicorn games. So he decided to set out on his own to find Castle Greyskull for guidance. At the gates, he was confronted by Papa Smurf and Gizmo and was told that their master was not home, but that he could seek guidance from The Princess of Power……..She-Ra.

She-Ra showed young JP all the wisdom and physical capabilities he would need to succeed in the world. She then transferred him to Peekablue for more physical training…….Much more physical training. From there, his training shifted to Mermista, then to Frosta, Flutterina, and Florence Henderson.

How JP actually ventured into the radio business is still a mystery. Some say that he lost all his magical powers when he wagered & lost them in a game of Old-Maid. Some say that he drank away all his powers, others suggest that he rode in from the sunset on the shoulders of a sasquatch to the ROCK 108 studios. The full truth may never be known. All that we do know is that he was forced to work on planet Earth and if you get him drunk enough, he will tell you the painful, physical, sexual stories that commenced in Castle Greyskull.

You may be wondering at this point of my story, “Where is his Unicorn’s horn?” All we can say is that it’s clearly not on his forehead.
