Who can argue with a punk rock anthem about the search for statistical certainty? Not me, at least. In fact, I couldn't help but smile this week when I came across a jaunty little tune called Increase the N by an outfit called Hefe from Vancouver.

Who can argue with a punk rock anthem about the search for statistical certainty? Not me, at least. In fact, I couldn't help but smile this week when I came across a jaunty little tune called Increase the N by an outfit called Hefe from Vancouver. I first saw reference to the song (lyrics below) on linkurl:The World's Fair;http://www.myspace.com/heferocks, where they kindly offered a link to the group's linkurl:myspace;http://www.myspace.com/heferocks account. Apparently, they're a group brought together by a love of beer and music, which sounds like a few labs I can think of. If nothing else, it certainly makes a nice change from some of the faced sci-art out there trying to bridge the "gap" between science and culture. Any other good examples out there? Lyrics There's a trend but the error is big increase the N the rat's no good use the guinea pig increase the N the antibody's weak the background high increase the N my P value is bigger than pi increase the N (chorus) increase the N ramp it up i need another hundred let's cut it up my wild-type is out of control increase the N let's rock'n'roll the blot is shit the signal strong increase the n it's above control there's something wrong increase the n mass-spec it baby give me the truth increase the n once is not enough i need proof increase the n
