Their songs, hilarious for high energy physicists and probably incomprehensible for others, are freely available on their Home Page.
Les Horribles Cernettes was founded by a secretary of the CERN, whose romantic relationship with a physicist was made difficult by numerous shifts. The girl attracted his attention by stepping on stage during the “CERN Hardronic Festival”, singing “Collider”, a melancholy song about the lonely nights endured by the girlfriend of a high energy physicist.
The group was subsequently formed around Silvano de Gennaro, an analyst in the Computer Science department at CERN, who wrote additional songs. The fame of Les Horribles Cernettes grew and they were invited to international Physics conferences and The World’92 Expo in Seville, as well as celebrations such as Georges Charpak’s Nobel Prize party. They received press coverage from numerous newspapers, including The New York Times, The Herald Tribune, La Tribune de Genève, and the CERN Courier. The band’s lineup has changed over time, but they are still performing as of 2006.
