Το ανεπίσημο τραγούδι για το Halloween (βασισμένο στο Monster Mash του Bobby Pickett) με τίτλο The Proton Smash, από τους φυσικούς του εργαστηρίου Fermilab:

I was working in the lab late one night
When my eyes beheld a glorious sight
For my particle beam began to energize
And suddenly, to my surprise

Background vocals: There was a smash
There was an atom smash
The atom smash
It was a particle bash
We did the smash
Jets went off in a flash
We did the smash
We did the atom smash

From my control room where computers gleam
We tuned and twirled the particle beam
The scientists gathered, they wouldn’t hide
How much they love to see things collide

There was a smash
There was a proton smash
The proton smash
It was a particle bash
We did the smash
Jets went off in a flash
We did the smash
We did the proton smash

Bridge: The operators were having fun
It was the start of the run
Who knew what we’d discover
When it was all done?

The detectors recorded what we couldn’t see
While theorists predicted what would come to be
And thinking ahead, some had already made
Shiny new components for the next upgrade

To help us smash
To help the protons smash
To make a smash
The best particle smash
The greatest smash
A real particle mash
To help us smash
To do the proton smash

The data was coming, it flowed in fast
Processed by computers working en masse
The scientists all cried out in delight
They found a bump, a bump in the night

There was a splash
It was a science splash
The proton smash
It was a boson bash
They made a splash
It was shared with panache
They did the smash
We did the proton smash

Researchers danced, they boogied down
To celebrate the new particle they’d found
There was just one hitch in all their plans –
The results were presented in Comic Sans

Now time to smash
There’s much more to smash
The proton smash
It is a particle bash
We like the smash
Hope computers don’t crash
We did the smash
We did the proton smash
