Is It Dangerous To Drive And Listen to Green Day?

Music with a BPM (beats per minute) greater than 120 can have a negative impact on your driving.

South China University of Technology recently conducted a study analyzing driving performances when motorists listened to rock, light music and nothing at all.

Using a driving simulator, subjects were asked to navigate a six-lane motorway for 20 minutes at a time. The study concluded that the number of times a driver changed lanes increased from an average of 70 times per hour to more than 140 times per hour when listening to loud rock.

Additionally, not only did the subjects driving increase in aggressiveness when listening to their favorite albums, but their speed also increased by an average of 5mph, which may lead to traffic violations.

Another recent study also tested drivers when listening to various genres from the most popular rated 96 tracks on Spotify. Once again, heavier genres dominated the list of most dangerous tracks to listen to, and Green Day ranked most dangerous of all…

Most Dangerous

  1. “American Idiot” – Green Day
  2. “Party in The U.S.A” – Miley Cyrus
  3. “Mr Brightside” – The Killers
  4. “Don’t Let Me Down” – The Chainsmokers
  5. “Born to Run” – Bruce Springsteen

Least Dangerous 

  1. “Stairway to Heaven” – Led Zeppelin
  2. “Under the Bridge” – Red Hot Chili Peppers
  3. “God’s Plan” – Drake
  4. “Africa” – Toto
  5. “Location” – Khalid

What do you think of the ranking? Do you agree rock music can be dangerous to listen to when driving? Or do you prefer heavier songs for a road trip? Tweet us @MDRNMAG and let us know your thoughts!

Miley Slides Us Into Emotional Feels With New Video

Miley Cyrus Slide Away

Miley has always been open and free with her songs and videos. Sure some are outrageous, but they’re still her. But in “Slide Away” we see a completely new and vulnerable side to her.

Fresh from her divorce with on-and-off again boyfriend/partner/husband, Liam Hemsworth, she is in a state of acceptance.

The video shows her in parties unable to get into the fun, she numb watching everyone around her. Not to mention that GORGEOUS gold chain dress she is wearing.

One thing that really sticks out to us, in particular, is a shot of a 10 of hearts card, with a hole in it, at the bottom of the pool. This signifies Miley and Liam for their 10-year relationship. There’s now a hole in her heart. And normally cards float. Relationships should stay afloat, but both have holes now and both have sunk.

We love the realness that Cyrus has been serving us between “Slide Away” and “Mother’s Daughter.” All we know is that we are here to support and love her forever and ever. We stan a queen.
