Green Day’s American Idiot Is The Most Dangerous Song To Drive To

According to a recent study, you shouldn’t get behind the wheel while listening to Green Day’s American Idiot.

Driving while listening to loud, fast music is an easy way to get in trouble with the law (though the music in question can provide for a pretty hilarious excuse as to why you were driving so fast). But as we all know, certain rock songs are more likely to get you a ticket than others. Now, apparently, a new study has determined that Green Day’s American Idiot is the most dangerous song to drive to.

As reported by NME, a study at South China University Of Technology has made a list of the songs based on how many times listeners changed lanes while listening to specific types of music. Apparently, this number doubled when rock music was on the radio, and it was also reported that drivers increased their speed by at least 5 mph while listening to rock.

According to the study, the five most dangerous songs to drive to are:

Green Day – American Idiot
Miley Cyrus – Party In The USA
The Killers – Mr. Brightside
The Chainsmokers – Don’t Let Me Dow
Bruce Springsteen – Born To Run

Meanwhile, the least dangerous songs to drive to are:

Led Zeppelin – Stairway To Heaven
Red Hot Chili Peppers – Under The Bridge
Drake – God’s Plan
Toto – Africa
Khalid – Location

No one, it should be noted, was surprised by Africa.

Green Day’s own Tré Cool is apparently honored by the distinction, according to a post on his Instagram today:

This, of course, is not the first study of its kind. A recent report by IAM Roadsmart showed that Slipknot’s (sic) from their 1999 debut album increased a driver’s chances of getting in an accident. According to the study, the driver “was a staggering 14 seconds slower and his throttle movements were far more jagged while listening to the metal compared to the control lap, and admitted listening to Slipknot made it harder to concentrate on the circuit layout.”
