I heard Nickleback had the most intelligent lyrics.

So I ignored the study.

Jesus Christ, What is wrong with people??!!! Have you not read Tolstoy? Pasternak? Shakespeare? Nabakov? Proust?. I expect a certain level of education and knowledge of the great masters of literature, from members of this forum.

Three Little Fishies
Down in a meadow
In an itty bitty pool
Swam three little fishies
And a mommy fishie too
Swim said the momma fishie,
Swim if you can
So they swam and they swam
Right over the damn

Boop Boop diddum daddum waddum choo
Boop Boop diddum daddum waddum choo
Boop Boop diddum daddum waddum choo
And they swam and they swam
Right over the damn.

Yes, it seems you seldom hear great song lyrics like "I guess I should have kept my mouth shut when I started to brag about my car" from Don't Worry Baby by The Beach Boys, anymore.

No one noticed my implication that the Andrews Sisters invented the atomic bomb. :P

It wasn't an implication - it was a straightforward statement. And, obviously, no one disagreed. Where would the world be without the Andrews sisters? They invented Andrews Liver Salts too (just Andrews Salts in the USA). A boon to mankind.

The Newbeats weren't in the same class as the Supremes or the Shirelles, but they were at least good enough to do transgender and transracial Canadians proud:
