In a few weeks from now my middle school exams will start and that's why I decided to create this list of artist that help you or me with studying!

The Top Ten

1 Bethel Music

The instruments used and overall genre of music produced by Bethel promotes focus. Studied (and passed) for uni entrance exams listening to them

2 Imagine Dragons Imagine Dragons is an American pop 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

Awesome band

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

Yeah, Demons! - Userguy44

3 David Hodges
4 Evanescence Evanescence is an American rock band founded in Little Rock, Arkansas in 1995 by singer/pianist Amy Lee and guitarist Ben Moody.

5 Pink Floyd Pink Floyd was an English progressive rock band formed in 1965 in London, England. 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 Guitar), Nick Mason (Drums), Roger Waters 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.

Your joking right? I love pink Floyd but it's impossible for me to do anything while listening to them. If I'm working on my homework and I pop on the wall or animals, I will be spending the entire time listening to the story. It's deep concentration music. Not study music. - Slipperyjack40

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

No matter what the subject or assignment is, pink floyd has always helped me stay focused and get it done.

6 Breaking Benjamin Breaking Benjamin is a American post-grunge/alternative metal band formed in 1998. The bands members all changed in the time between 2010 to 2014, with the exception of Ben Burnley (Vocals). The Ex-Members included Chad Szeliga (Drums), Aaron Fink (Guitar) and Mark Klepaspi (Bass). more.
7 Skillet Skillet 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!

8 Tool Tool is an American progressive/alternative/post-metal band, that was formed in 1990. more.

The kinds of compositions and sounds in their songs allow you to have them in the background while studying without getting distracted - kempokid

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 music is made to make the brain work, the perfect sinchronization between the instruments it's just perfect to understand how the body works. Medicine Student from Chile.

Tool got me thru life man

9 Three Days Grace Three Days Grace is a Canadian rock band formed in Norwood, Ontario in 1992 with a line-up consisting of guitarist and lead vocalist Adam Gontier, drummer and backing vocalist Neil Sanderson, and bassist Brad Walst.

I hate everything about studying!

Lindsey is the by far the best music for studying!

She's a good violinist

Who? - Brobusky

I'm Not a Big Fan Of Lindsey ( I Love Her Songs But I Don't Listen So Much because' I'm MetalHead,So...)
She Is The Best Choice For Listening Music While Studying.
Pink Floyd Is A Good Choice Too

The Contenders

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).

No! They are another Pink Floyd! They are one of the last things I would listen to while studying. They are amazing nonetheless. - Slipperyjack40

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

A calming band - Bboymakinwitthefrekfreak

Great choice! - Userguy44

12 Taylor Swift Taylor Alison Swift is an American singer-songwriter. more.

I studied for the final exam listening to Taylor Swift and I ended up failing Kindergarten

I was almost about to graduate so I listend to her music while listening to her, I am now a pre-school dropout.

She gave me a lot of courage in her song

I love Taylor's songs!

They make some very solid music. what does that even mean, haha? right now I'm listening to Eleanor Rigby on the revolver album, one of my favourite albums, and one that I find helps me to concentrate..

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

Imagine - FennikenFan9

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

Members were Freddie Mercury (Vocals and Piano), Brian May (Guitar, Vocals), Roger Taylor (Drums, Vocals), and John Deacon (Bass Guitar, Vocals). Before forming into Queen, Brian May and Roger Taylor had played together in a band named Smile. Freddie Mercury more.

Queen's music is absolutely legendary and I think that a playlist of their Ballads is perfect for relaxing and or/ studying.

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 more.

Yes. When I do my homework or study while listening to Green Day, I get it done no problem and also find that very little time has passed! - Slipperyjack40

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

19 Dream Theater Dream Theater is an American progressive metal band from Boston, Massachusetts. The band was formed in 1985 under the name of "Majesty", only to change its name to Dream Theater later. 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.

I find them to have too many louder elements that break my focus - kempokid

The members currently include Mike Shinoda (vocals, keyboards, rhythm guitar), Brad Delson (guitar), Dave "Phoenix" Farrell (bass), Joe Hahn (DJ) and Rob Bourdon (drums).

One Step Closer, nough said.

Depends on the song. If it's a more creative, progressive song, then it's probably better to just listen to that another time. But mesmerizing tracks like Frame by Frame would surely help. - Songsta41

Their first album and discipline are not only some of the best prog rock of all time but amazing to study to

The Sheltering Sky is one of the most mesmerising songs out there. - IronSabbathPriest

King crimson has a whide amount of songs types and sure the 21st century song isn't that good while studying but other songs from that album are perfect.
