Top 10 Music Artists to Listen to While Studying

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 Provo, Utah, and are now based out of Las Vegas, Nevada. Imagine Dragons' lineup consists of lead vocalist Dan Reynolds, guitarist Wayne Sermon, bassist Ben McKee, and drummer Daniel Platzman. The band first gained exposure with the release of their single "It's Time", followed by their award-winning debut studio album Night Visions (2012), which resulted in the chart-topping singles "Radioactive" and "Demons". Rolling Stone named "Radioactive", which holds the record for most weeks charted on the Billboard Hot 100, the "biggest rock hit of the year".

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

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

3 David Hodges

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.

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

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

Should be at least top 3

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.
