Kelly Clarkson’s “Einstein,” Plus Other Fuzzy Math In Pop Music

All morning I’ve been listening to Kelly Clarkson’s quite enjoyable new album, Stronger, and found myself laughing aloud at the lyrics to the song ”Einstein. Ahem: 

Simple math
Our love divided by the square root of pride
Multiply your lifeless time
I’m going out of my mind
It was heaven when I finally figured it out alone…

Dumb plus dumb equals you
Dumb plus dumb equals you
Dumb plus dumb equals you

Indeed, there is no better way to tell a man to shove it than to diminish him with some lyrics containing some seriously fuzzy math. Dumb plus dumb equal you, BOO YA! 

In honor of Kelly — and my favorite high school calculus teacher — here are some other bad math moments in music history.
