Can You Guess Which Musical Genre Makes Most Frequent Reference to Asses?

Except rap, which, predictably, is all about asses (23 percent of all rap songs mention them), the majority of musical genres mention the eyes more frequently than any other part of the anatomy—14 percent in metal songs, 15 in folk music. Based on surveys of thousands of songs, the nifty website Fleshmap has cobbled together body part profiles for every major pop music genre. There aren't many surprises (talk of hands in gospel: who would have guessed?), except maybe the weird fact that knees get mentioned surprisingly frequently in almost every genre. Elbows, not so much. (BoingBoing)
