The above image, courtesy of TMZ.com, pretty much sums up the overall results of the intriguing recent scientific study by young computer wiz Virgil Griffith which came to the conclusion that smart people listen to Ludwig Van Beethoven while dumb peeps bumped Lil Weezy, and average intelligence folks knew all the lyrics to "Mr Jones" by The Counting Crows.

This SAT scores related to music habits study, which it goes without saying should be taken with a grain of salt, was conducted by comparing SAT scores with music listened to by a sample of college students. The study utilized Facebook profiles' listing of favorite music/artists and correlated this with said students' SAT scores.
