News: Revision Music

Students at the University of Wisconsin's Daily Cardinal have come up with a poll of what they consider to be the best "study break" music. Here's a selection:

  • “Battle Without Honour” by Tomoyasu Hotei

    Just imagine walking into your final exam, the main theme from “Kill Bill” blaring in your ears as you slice an entire stack of blue books to shreds with your samurai skills. If that doesn’t motivate you, I don’t know what will. —Kevin Slane

  • “Here’s Your Future” by The Thermals

    This song is valuable for its ability to summarize the Old and New Testaments in roughly two minutes. Couplets like “Fear me again and know I’m your Father / Remember that no one can breathe underwater” double as snappy punk rock and indispensable cliff notes for your next Biblical history final. —Matt Hunziker

  • “School’s Out” by Alice Cooper

    Be sure to save this gem for your last exam, as playing it at the beginning of finals week can merely result in depression and lethargy. —Kevin Slane

There are plenty of suggestions over at the Daily Cardinal. But more importantly, what are your suggestions?
