Warning: Nerdy Waters Ahead – Baby Got Stats and Too Logit

Posted to Miscellaneous  |  Nathan Yau

John Hopkins BiostatThis just might be nerdy statistics overload even for me. A group from the John Hopkins biostatistics department has created parodies of Sir Mix-A-Lot’s Baby Got Back and MC Hammer’s Too Legit To Quit. For your listening pleasure – Baby Got Stats and Too Logit.

The songs are in MP3 format, so you can put them on your iPod and play them over and over and over again. One play-through was enough for me, but clearly, it’s only a matter of time before this biostat group hits main stream.

Update: Here’s the video version for your viewing pleasure.

  • That was surprisingly funny. I’ve seen a few other math/stat song parodies before, and I most of them are groan-worthy, if anything.

    The band needs to move beyond covers though, and produce some original material, otherwise they’ll never fill Madison Square Garden.

  • Haha… statcore rap, here it comes.

  • by public demand, the Baby Got Stats performance is on youtube (if anyone still cares):
