A study has come out and it ranks the intelligence of popular music. It looks at the lyrical content of some of the biggest artists and ranks the lyrics on an average grade reading level. The study looked at different genres in music and the average reading level is only at a grade three. The results though, are questionable to say the least with Nickelback topping the rock chart (somehow) and Eminem only scoring a grade 3.70 reading level(wtf?).
