Everyone has different tastes in music so it's hard to narrow down one genre as the most influential, but scientists have attempted to do that by analysing US music charts from 1960 to 2010. During that time, they've determined that no other genre of music has been as influential as hiphop in changing the landscape of music and impacting all sorts of artists. Hear more about their findings and meet some hiphop fans who explain why the music means so much to them.
