Still worried about black holes? Let me break it down.
First off, congrats to the LHC team for those first weeks of collisions, and continued luck for 2010. [This rap is endorsed by no organization, btw]. They will not have produced any mini-black-holes yet, but if you are still afraid for the future, this rap is all about why you shouldn't be.
Will Barras personally provided the guitar, mixed in with the audio he produced: http://www.ling.ed.ac.uk/~s9527813/. Wrapping up his PhD so wish him luck!
As usual, I have been a video magpie, and these people and sites deserve mention. I hope they all have a sense of humor.

Fair Use covers me for copyright infringement, considering that I've used short clips for educational purposes without any monetary gain. (And BBC, fair's fair since you branded the Large Hadron Rap with your logo when you uploaded it to your website!) Thanks in advance for not attempting to sue me for my nonexistent royalties ;) If I've missed anyone, just let me know and I'll get a link up.
Thanks to the unnamed dancers for providing their moves and also some camera work, though Mat did the bulk of that and some directing as well.
Roger Vanvleck gets special mention because this kind man from Saranac, MI did not charge me for getting trapped footage off the decade-old camera we used to film. Thanks!
