Rock Music Evokes a Sense of Power

Rock Music Evokes a Sense of Power

Listening to rock music with dominant bass lines can help you to get faster to the finishing line.

University of Illinois researchers analysing the connection between music and athletic performance discovered that runners and riders feel more empowered when listening to rock anthems and tracks with dominant bass lines when compared to less ‘rocking’ songs.

Power hits including Queen’s ‘We Will Rock You’ and 2 Unlimited’s ‘Get Ready for This,’ were discovered to evoke a sense of power subconsciously and help test subjects to improve their athletic performance.
