Sharks Reportedly Love Heavy Metal and AC/DC


(Classic Rock) Sharks love heavy metal and rock music and have a particular appetite for AC/DC, according to a new book. The authors of The Mice Who Sing For Sex: And Other Weird Tales From The World Of Science claim studies show that sharks are drawn to the low frequency pulsing sounds (20-60 cycles/second) of heavy metal.

The book also claims great white sharks particularly favored the AC/DC songs You Shook Me All Night Long and If You Want Blood (You Got It), becoming calmer and less aggressive when the tracks were played to them.

Radio X DJ Lliana Bird and neuroscientist Dr Jack Lewis wrote the book, which is released on October 8 (Thursday) via Amazon Media. Other discoveries highlighted in the book include the results of a 2013 study in Japan which showed how four fish were trained to show their powers of recognition by giving them food in return for tugging a red bead in their aquarium whenever they heard a certain piece of music.
