Much of the buzz around the 2014 Induction Ceremony centered on who -- if anyone -- would perform songs from Nirvana's celebrated catalog. Inductees Dave Grohl and Krist Novoselic, as well as longtime Nirvana rhythm player (and Germs punk) Pat Smear were on hand, ready to play, but who would bravely fill the impossibly large shoes of departed frontman Kurt Cobain?

Vocal communication of whales sounds like songs whales sing to each other. So if our algorithm was able to analyze songs made by whales, we started to wonder how well it could analyze songs made by humans. It just made sense to give it a try.
