Beats Per Minute or BPM are used to calculate the timing of a song and acts as a guide to the speed it should be played. i.e., 60 bpm = 60 counts in 1 minute = 1 beat per second.

note that it is not 100% accurate due to the time it takes to hit the keyboard and the current internet activity!
If the counter shows % of a beat you should round it up or down depending on the music e.g., 59.988888 would be 60 bpm.
