Somebody should do a cover of that song but call it "Don't Stop Beliebin'" for all the Beliebers. There's gotta be SOME way to get the kids involved in 70s fratrock.

Several years ago, a grad student at CalTech used Facebook data to gather the top 10 artists at various colleges and graphed it with CollegeBoard's information on students' average SAT scores at each college (a rigorous method, Mr. College Student!).

The group Walk Off the Earth performs the song "Somebody That I Used to Know," originally by the Australian singer-songwriter Gotye. The catch? They all play on different parts of the same guitar.

It'd be easy to dismiss the five-musicians-one-guitar schtick as a gimmick, but the group actually creates a beautifully-executed rendition of the song in its own right, perfect for listening if you're celebrating Single's Awareness Day today.
