anapestic stopped beat

Research has shown, for example, that what is technically described as the ‘anapestic stopped beat’ often used in rock music can induce stress

Can someone explain to me what does it mean the phrase 'anapestic stopped beat' into the sentence above.
Thank you.

    Hola.

    Debe de ser el ritmo seco, marcado y "machacón" propio del rock, que aquí se compara con el ritmo del anapesto, el pie métrico clásico formado por dos sílabas cortas y una larga. He mirado el Google, y he visto que sólo aparecen tu pregunta y el texto que ha originado tu duda. Siento no poder ayudarte más.

    Saludos

    From translator.cat´s explanation I deduce that it is the same rhythm that the rock band Queen used in their well known song We will rock you. If you wish to hear this, I suggest you Google We Will Rock You Drum Track and find one of the many sites that have an audio sample of it.
