A new study found that surgeons who listened to AC/DC during operations were faster and more accurate.

The trial showed that surgeons who were listening to "TNT" or "Highway To Hell" went from taking 236 seconds to make an incision to 139 and were also 5% more accurate.

Surgeons who listened to The Beatles' "Hey, Jude" and "Let It Be" also stitched up their patients 50% faster.

One researcher from Germany's Heidelberg University wrote "It is possible that music with high rhythmicity could provide a tempo to keep up the speed of the performance and thus enhance task performance."
