Beyonce fans 'among least intelligent but Beethoven fans are cleverest'
Those who prefer indie music are most intelligent, while pop, rock and gospel fans were all ranked at the lower end of the scale.
Fans of legendary acts like Queen, The Beatles, Jimi Hendrix, Frank Sinatra and Bob Marley are all around average and above when it comes to intelligence, according to Griffiths.
Radiohead, U2 and Bob Dylan all have intelligent fans, he said.
