It's math set to music!
May 23, 2007 8:05 PM   Subscribe

The Klein Four is a group of math students at the Northwestern University who delight in bringing you various lovely, well-sung A Capella songs infused with their very own and very nerdy flavour. They're not the newest of the web, having released their first CD in 2005, but witty lyrics and five-part harmonizing are definitely worth checking out. I did do a search for this and didn't find anything. Please don't kill me.

As opposed to the non-nerdy a capella.

Seems like a fine bunch of spirited lads.

I might be missing something, but that sure looked and sounded like four-part harmony to me. Although I would be very in favor of a group called the Something-or-Other Four who do sing five parts.

Hey, if anyone can make group theory entertaining, it's math students.

This rules & makes me sorta jealous.

Should I listen? One of the primary reasons I'm glad my college career is behind me is that I am now very rarely exposed to the music of witty a cappella groups.
