Best Insulation to Reduce Noise??


What type of insulation would be the best for reducing noise?? I have a bare, unfinished ceiling. I've decided on the drywall, but I don't know what type or degree of insulation to use.

thanks

I posted the link for Roxul, because it is a mineral wool acoustic-sound-rated insulation.

http://www.roxul.com/sw18172.asp:
"Roxul Safe 'n' Sound™ is a mineral wool insulation product for use in residential wood and steel stud construction where superior fire and acoustical performance are a primary concern."

Also:
