The Top TenXW

2Imagine DragonsImagine Dragons is an American rock band from Las Vegas, Nevada. Imagine Dragons' lineup consists of lead vocalist Dan Reynolds, guitarist Wayne Sermon, bassist Ben McKee, and drummer Daniel Platzman.

Songs such as Radioactive, I'm So Sorry, and Friction are good for getting things done quickly. Songs like Smoke + Mirrors, The Unknown, and Nothing Left To Say/Rocks are good for focusing and doing things diligently. Then there is Dream to just make you sob and forget what you were thinking about - gabgriffinfcs

I love songs like Polaroid, Friction, Amsterdam, and Radiactive!

Breaking Benjamin is a very good choice for their mixture of technicality and their Post-Grunge/Alternative Metal Sound! - CastlevaniaFanboy128

6Pink FloydPink Floyd were an English rock band formed in London. They achieved international acclaim with their progressive and psychedelic music. The band consisted of 5 members - David Gilmour (Vocals and Guitar), Syd Barrett (Vocals and Guitarist), Nick Mason (Drums), Roger Waters (Vocals and Bass), and Richard ...read more.

I find it very hard to listen to heavy metal while concentrating the mind so this list is kind of awkward to me. However, studying while listening to Pink Floyd is something I can really relate to.

Pink Floyd is a progressive band, that tends to be a lot of psychedelic Rock too! Listening through one of their albums makes you think a lot better! - CastlevaniaFanboy128

I find myself asking "What Shall I Do? " when trying to study. Then I realize, "oh yeah I listen to Pink Floyd! " - Lasvegasxavier

7ToolTool is an American progressive metal/alternative metal band, that was formed in 1990. ...read more.

Tool is like a musical math lesson from Danny Carey himself. Lateralus helped me remember the Fibonacci sequence in math class. Also 46 and 2 helped me remember the number of chromosomes a human has. (46 in case you were wondering)

Tool is a band, that talks in their songs about matters, like evoluzion of man into gods or just adds mathematical systems to their songs!
Definitely Tool is the most intelligent band of them all! - CastlevaniaFanboy128

8SkilletSkillet is an American Christian rock band formed in Memphis, Tennessee in 1996 and based in the United States.

One of the few rock bands in 2010s. Honestly, rock is my favorite genre of music. Go skillet!

I love this band, but I don't think I can listen to Skillet while studying because this might happen :
*listens to Skillet - Whispers in the Dark*
Me : *closes book and starts jumping on the bed while singing along and headbanging* - BlueFrostOfThunderClan

9Three Days GraceThree Days Grace is a Canadian rock band formed in Norwood, Ontario in 1997 with a line-up consisting of guitarist and lead vocalist Adam Gontier, drummer and backing vocalist Neil Sanderson, and bassist Brad Walst.
10RadioheadRadiohead are an English rock band from Abingdon, Oxfordshire, formed in 1985. The band consists of Thom Yorke (lead vocals, guitar, piano, keyboards), Jonny Greenwood (lead guitar, keyboards, other instruments), Colin Greenwoood (bass guitar), Phil Selway (drums), and Ed O'Brien (guitar).

OK Computer, The Bends, Kid A, and In Rainbows are all classics and are just the perfect albums to study to!

Radioheads mixture of Grunge and Electronic Rock is very interesting and made this band stand out a lot! OK Computer was perfect in my opinion! - CastlevaniaFanboy128

The Beatles are a obvious choice! They're psychedelic with their later albums and poppy with their earlier work! And besides nearly everyone likes this band! - CastlevaniaFanboy128

The Beatles are sort of the musical answer to most things, I find. - BKAllmighty

R.I.P John Lennon And George Harrison. I wish I could bring them back to life

16Dream TheaterDream Theater is an American progressive metal band. The band was formed in 1985 under the name of "Majesty", but had to change its name to Dream Theater later. ...read more.

Look, Dream Theater is easily my favorite band, but let's remember the name of the list. Two things that would distract you, therefore you probably shouldn't listen to them if you want to focus, are metal and progressive rock. Dream Theater is both of those. Amazing band, but I would never study to them. - Songsta41

For effective studying and not having to worry about choosing songs every 5 minutes, Dream Theater is great. Also they offer lengthy instrumental breaks which are helpful for studying.

17Green DayGreen Day are an American punk rock band formed in East Bay, California in 1987. The members include Billie Joe Armstrong (vocals and guitar), Mike Dirnt (bass), Tré Cool (drums) and Jason White (guitar) . Green Day are associated with punk rock, pop punk and alternative rock . Some of their influences ...read more.

Green Day are good for anything, studying, casual listening, literally anything. Can't recommend good songs, because they are all AMAZING!

18ColdplayColdplay are a British rock band formed in 1996. The band consists of Chris Martin (lead vocalist and pianist), Jonny Buckland (lead guitarist), Guy Berryman (bassist) and Will Champion (drummer and backing vocalist).
