How smart you are depends on which music artists you listen to [Chart]

How smart are you? How dumb are you?
Music may help shed some light on that very question.
Software application writer, Virgil Griffith has charted musical tastes based on the average SAT scores of various college institutions.
Via Consequence of Sound:

For example, students attending the California Institute of Technology have an average SAT score of 1520. By looking at Facebook to determine the most popular (or — “liked”) band of students at Cal Tech, Griffith was able to conclude that Radiohead really truly is music for smart people. A highly scientific study, I know.

Griffith’s chart reveals Sufjan Stevens, Bob Dylan, The Shins, and Counting Crows as other favorite bands of smart people. Meanwhile, Lil Wayne, Beyoncé, The Used, and gospel music comes in at the lower end of the spectrum or as Griffith puts it, is music for dumb people.
Among other interesting revelations from the Griffith’s chart:
