Hey, Mr. Higgs…


August 15, 2012 by quirkyuncle

I recently discovered what must be the ultimate nerd-appeal band: Les Horribles Cernettes.

Affiliated with the European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN) – can’t get more nerd points than this – they boast a repertoire of several original songs about love in the anguished world of particle physics. They have released one album, Collider. Links to most of their songs, along with some info about the band, can be found on their website or their Wikipedia page.

Here are Cernettes performing Hey, Mr. Higgs live. They also have the distinction of being in the first photo transmitted over the Internet.

Gotta love it!
