What kind of music are you into? Metal? Pop? Rap? After reading the results of this study, you may start to put some things into question.
Researchers are New York University performed a study of nearly 200 students to determine where each of them fell on the psychopathic scale. They then cross referenced that with their taste in music.

The playlist of a psychopath
Eminem’s big single from the 8 Mile soundtrack Lose Yourself and Blackstreet’s No Diggity were by far the two songs more correlated with psychopathic profiles.
