Listening to music can make you dumb?

A Caltech student has conducted a study stating that the type of music you listen to, can affect your IQ.  I heard this over the weekend on the radio, and was a little curious what this meant.  The report states that artists such as U2 makes you smarter and artists such as Lil Wayne and Justin Timberlake make you more dumb.  I can understand the idea that certain artists/genres may affect concentration – but I think it is kind of bold to state that the artists you listen to, make you dumb.  I don’t exactly remember when it was said, I just remember it was said that  listening to classical music while you study Mathematics will improve your scores, but can  it really make you smarter?  Read the full story here.  Read the list of music that makes you “dumb.”
