A UK radio station has been named second most dangerous radio station for drivers to listen to

Music with a BPM (beats per minute) greater than 120 can result in faster driving speeds and more traffic violations

The most dangerous songs to drive to have been revealed – and it’s bad news for fans of everyone from Green Day and The Killers to Miley Cyrus and Bruce Springsteen.

A new study conducted by vehicle finance provider Moneybarn , it seems the majority of the most popular road trip songs UK drivers listen to may have a negative impact on your driving.

Reserach shows music with a BPM (beats per minute) greater than 120 can result in faster driving speeds and more traffic violations. High-energy songs can also impact driving safety.

Of the 96 most popular road trip songs on Spotify, Moneybarn has identified Green Day’s American Idiot as the most “dangerous” song to listen to.

That’s closely followed by Miley Cyrus’s Party in the U.S.A, Mr. Brightside by The Killers, Don’t Let Me Down by The Chainsmokers and Bruce Springsteen’s Born to Run.

Based on their energy and BPM score, less than 30% of the most popular road trip songs are deemed “safe” to drive to. Led Zeppelin’s Stairway to Heaven leads the pack as the safest song for motorists to drive to, followed by Under the Bridge by Red Hot Chili Peppers, God’s Plan by Drake, Africa by Toto and Location by Khalid.
