Music with a lot of bass may be good to listen to at the gym or before a big meeting or day, according to a new study.

Researchers at Northwestern University studied 75 college students. They had the students listen to music from a variety of genres, from heavy metal to punk to hip hop.

After listening to students with high levels of bass, the participants felt more dominant and powerful.

In one of the tests, the participants were told they could win five dollars if they predicted the number that came up when die was rolled. Those who had listened to the music with much bass were more likely to want to roll the die themselves than those who did not.
