In 2015, three graduate students and a communications officer made a CERN-themed parody of Howie Day’s hit song “Collide”. Howie Day saw the parody on Twitter, and asked to visit CERN. We said yes, but only if he covered our parody of his song and let us make a music video with him during the visit. We were joking. He wasn’t.

Lyrics:

The beam is starting
The power is on
This is our parting
Goodbye my baryon
Yeah
We counter-rotate
I see you pass by
Till we make argon and lead tungstate
Light up again

Out of the depths of space and time
Even the bosons cannot hide
As the momentum starts to climb
I somehow find
You and I
Collide

The theories you know
We test their ground
Is there another Higgs?
Can SUSY still be found?

Out of the depths of space and time
Even the gluons cannot hide
As the momentum starts to climb
I somehow find
You and I
Collide

Dark Matter
2HDM
And Gravitons

Out in the depths of space and time
Even the sea-quarks cannot hide
Out of the mess we leave behind
What will they find
When you and I
Collide
What will they find
When you and I
Collide

What will they find
When you and I
Collide
