50 Cent could help you land your dream job. According to a study conducted by the Society For Personality and Social Psychology, "high power" music like Fiddy's "In Da Club" inspires the kind of confidence that makes a good impression in job interviews.

"Low power" music, such as the Notorious B.I.G.'s "Big Poppa," makes one more timid and meek, the study claims. "Just as professional athletes might put on empowering music before they take the field to get them in a powerful state of mind, you might try this in certain situations where you want to be empowered," says Derek Rucker of the Kellogg School of Business Management.

Other club bangers that could help you ace that interview or fist-pump your way to a raise include Queen's "We Will Rock You" and 2 Unlimited's "Get Ready For This."
