Speaking of music calming the savage beast, scientists in Australia have discovered that playing AC/DC music to great white sharks seems to have a calming effect on the creatures, reports NME.


They are especially fond of "You Shook Me All Night Long," according to new research.


Scientists in Australia have discovered that great white sharks behave in a much calmer manner when they are played AC/DC songs.


Matt Waller, a chartered boat operator in Southern Australia, has been conducting research into how music affects the behavior of great white sharks and discovered that they tended to behave in a much calmer manner when AC/DC is played, in particular "You Shook Me All Night Long."


Waller told Australian news outlet ABC News: "I was talking to a guy who had been diving in Guadeloupe and there were some divers there who just been playing music in the water. We got talking and they said there were some certain songs that saw an actual change in the behavior of the sharks."


He continued: "I started going through my albums and AC/DC was something that really hit the mark. Their behavior was more investigative, more inquisitive and a lot less aggressive. They actually came past on a couple of occasions when we had the speaker in the water and rubbed their face along the speaker which was really bizarre."


The discovery is all the more strange as great white sharks don't have ears, so are simply responding to the frequencies and vibrations from the tracks.

I wonder what would happen if you played some Great White for a great white.

The shark would catch fire.



Tasteless, but I found it humorous.
