Now it’s “music that makes you dumb”

Follow up to post about books that achieve this end.

This site does the correlation with music and SAT scores.

Looking at Facebook for University of Nottingham today it seems the following represent our top 10:

Muse
1 Muse
2 The Killers
3 Oasis
4 Jack Johnson
5 Snow Patrol
6 Coldplay
7 Bloc Party
8 Radiohead
9 The Kooks
10 Razorlight

Which, in US terms, would definitely mean mid-table obscurity.

How disappointing.
