Aside from being a cesspool of provocative memes, Twitter is a great place to hear from little-known experts in niche fields. Which is why when we caught wind of this thread from a self-described music historian—a thread that is definitely accurate and not actually a missive from comedy Twitter—we were captivated. Knowledge is power; let's do some learning!

The thread starts off with some predictable singles:

And now, going into the 19th century and further into the past is when things really start to sound, um, off.

But hey, you learn something new every day!
