Study Proves Loud Rock Music Hurts The Environment, Willie Nelson Does Not

How about science coming through and proving the superiority of country music, both for the listener and the environment?

According to a study published in the journal Evolution and Ecologywildlife experts testing the “AC/DC hypothesis,” found that music from AC/DC, Guns N’ Roses and Lynyrd Skynyrd negatively affected how insects attacked pests, thereby hurting plant growth, while Willie Nelson and other country songs had no effect, despite being played at the same volume.

The test consisted of using a group of ladybugs to examine how the music affected their consumption of aphids, a pest that infests and destroys soybean plants. In addition to rock, country and folk music, they also used typical urban sounds like jackhammers and car horns.

When rock music was played, aphid consumption was cut in half.

Even the ladybugs love Willie Nelson. Gotta love science.
