Just sayin'...

This is bit of old news, but here's an excerpt from the Sun, about the findings of a study conducted by Virgil Griffiths, a PhD student, about music choices and intelligence:
Griffith compared students’ scores in SAT exams with their favourite music acts and genres by analysing data on social networking sites.

Those who prefer Indie music are most intelligent, while gospel, pop and rock fans were all ranked at the lower end of the scale.

Fans of legendary acts like Queen, The Beatles, Jimi Hendrix, Frank Sinatra and Bob Marley are all around average and above when it comes to brains, according to Griffith’s graph. And Radiohead, U2 and Bob Dylan count some of the more intelligent people among their fans.

Full data can be found here.
