(MusicRadar) A vague piece of music 'research' has caused much amusement in the last few days. It's by a Californian student called Virgil Griffith, and is an interesting (albeit rather unscientific) study mapping music tastes with average SAT scores.

According to a Wall Street Journal blog post, Griffith "used aggregated Facebook data about the favorite bands and books among students of various colleges and plotted them against the average SAT scores at those schools, creating a tongue-in-cheek statistical look at taste and intelligence."

His findings?- The 'smartest' students' favorite musician is Beethoven (average SAT score of 1371). Other artists at the top of the scale are Counting Crows, Radiohead and Sufjan Stevens. - The 'less-smart' students' favorite artist is Lil Wayne (average SAT score of 889). Artists alongside Lil Wayne at the bottom include Beyonce, TI and any soca musician. - [Uh huh uh huh, yeah yeah.]
