The impact of rap music on college undergraduate student's reckless behavior was examined in the following study. When compared with rock music listeners, subjects that reported rap as being their preferred genre of music reported significantly higher results when engaging in driving over 80 mph (miles per hour), driving greater than 20 mph over the speed limit, and having sex without contraception. Overall significant responses by music preference were discovered for 5 of the 10 survey questions with rock music listeners being significantly higher in cocaine use and casual sex. It was concluded that music alone, more specifically rap music, was not the sole determining factor for students engaging in reckless behavior.
