A study by WithinHealth has determined which rock and metal bands make people feel confident about themselves and their bodies.

Body image, as defined by Medical News Today, is the perception of one’s own body along with the feelings associated with it. This image can be influenced by factors such as social media and popular culture.

To conduct the study, WithinHealth studied body positivity-related playlists on Spotify and surveyed over 1000 music listeners. The five rock artists resulting in the most confidence are QUEEN, GUNS N’ ROSES, LED ZEPPELIN, THE BEATLES and PINK FLOYD, while the five metal artists are METALLICA, TOOL, NIRVANA, FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH and AVENGED SEVENFOLD. According to the survey, 64 percent of participants who felt confident about their bodies listen to rock, 40 percent listen to alternative music and 23 percent are metalheads.

Additionally, 37 percent of participants said that music helped them develop a positive body image and 28 percent of people feel that music videos have a negative impact on their body image. A graph from the study is included in the report.
