Listening to Justin Bieber and One Direction makes you a better person, 'scientific' study finds

While it might not get you any street cred, listening to so-called mainstream music such a Justin Bieber nd One Direction will make you a better person, a study has found

According to research conducted in the Netherlands, kids who listen to "unconventional music" – which they define as hip-hop, punk and trance, are more likely to become "delinquents"

A The Atlantic eports, the 'Early Adolescent Music Preferences and Minor Delinquency' study assessed 300 school children aged 12 to 16 and found that those who listened to Justin Bieber or "highbrow" music (their words, not ours) such as Beethoven or jazz turned out to be model students

Note: For interested ONTD scientists HERE is the Atlantic article that has details about the study. I recommend you go over there and read it.

School kids with better taste in music, rocking out to Sex Pistols or Odd Future, were more likely to commit crimes later on in life. "Music is the medium that separates mainstream youth from young people who may more easily adopt norm-breaking behaviors," the study ound

It also suggests that "in peer groups characterized by their deviant music taste, norm-breaking youth may 'infect' their friends with their behavior." So next time someone hands you that new Tyler, The Creator or Milk Music mixtape – be warned.
