    Why do kids like their "music" so loud?


    Seriously.

    I mean maybe I'm just old (37) but is there really a need to have bass cranked to the point the widows rattle in my apartment when your a quarter mile up the road?

    A few weeks ago my wife and I were awakened by the neighbor who was playing music as he cleaned his car. When we complained he said he couldn't hear it!!!!My wife told him to c'mon in we hear it fine!!!

    Idiots.

    from a nap one weekA few weeks ago awakened by the neighbor who was [laying music as he cleaned his car. When we complained he said he couldn't hear it!!!!My wife told him to c'mon in we hear it fine!!!

    I have superb hearing, at the cost of a very bland sense of smell( I can hear a phone vibrate out in my car lol, but I can barely smell what kind of food is in front of me).

    My friend though has hes new computer set up, with these speakers that he explained to me are the most powerful you can buy, he turned it on at like 40% and I felt nothing but pain. he is proud of the fact the special way the it is built will carry the bass and not let it drop. He can vibrat glass on windows down the road.

    I duno why even have that. I like quite. And its not just being old, I am 22 man. I crank my car music, but only if I am on the freeway, doing 80Mph with the windows down and sunroof open.

    Just building layers of hearing loss lol.

    What kills me is this neighbor has a 2 year old that sits in a car seat in the back...I know that poor little guy is destined for hearing problems in the future.

    I like children my ex has a child of her own who is three and I would do dearly for a child but man doing something like that I can understand rollin down the road music blastin when its just him and his girl but when the kids involved they are really making some really poor decisions. That child should not have to suffer and honestly my ex had hearing problems really bad she wears these hearing aid earbuds so she can hear at the age of 22. Im sorry guys but I really feel bad for others and what they have to live for the rest of their lives but man I am just kinda upset that this people would do such a horrible thing to a child for crying out loud! Damnit where these ppl at ima take my damn Shock Theraphy and Jack3d rolll over their house and show em some real noise.

    I listen to my music loud at my personal hearing expense. As soon as I can tell that I could be interfering with someone else's hearing or comfort, I stop. Listening to loud music is fine. Making other people listen to loud music that they don't want to hear is not cool.

    Just now my wife and I are trying to watch TV and we hear

    BOOM

    BOOMBOOMBOOM

    BOOM

    BOOMBOOMBOOM

    so we're like wtf?!?!?!?!

    My wife sticks her head out the front door and it someone in the apartment building next door. She hollars "Hey dude, can you turn it down? You're shaking stuff on our walls" and the bastard just laughed and kept walking.

    He better be glad I didn't see that.

    I'm complaining when I pay rent tomorrow, if that doesn't work I see me beating someones self centered ass in the future. We'll see how well he hears when I have his head shoved so far up his ass he turns inside out.

    I can't contain myself when One by Metallica comes on my car radio. I like certain songs so much that I insist on sharing my music with everyone at the intersection by rolling down my windows and cranking the volume.

    I'm a car audio fanatic!!! I LOVE BASS.
    You will never hear me beating down your block at 2am, or at the stoplight sitting next to you, or even creeping through the mall parking lot. I keep my music down (unless I'm on the highway) for a couple reasons
    A. There are a ton of scum out there waiting to steal whatever you have that they can't afford. So when you go around town playing your stereo you are just advertising what you have and someone will sooner or later take it!!
    B. Just plain respect for other people around me. Noone wants to hear my ****ty music and I don't want to hear theirs.
    I HATE kids that go around and play it as loud as they can and then look over at you at a stoplight with the "yea I'm a baller" look. They give us actual enthusiasts of the sport a bad name.

    You can do it respectfully...it seems you're the minority. There's nothing wrong with enjoying something, it's forcing others to it too that bothers me.

    I just don't see any need for me to sit in my apartment minding my own business and have things on my walls vibrating because some jackass thinks he's gangsta.

    I'm thinking there may be a psychological aspect...using human animal theory, it's an announcement of arrival and/or territory.

    Or maybe these idiots have such little self-esteem they need this to have people pay attention to them.

    Tell me about it, I usually like to crank my car's system while listening to mudvayne... especially when I'm driving in the ghetto parts of Los Angeles. People (including the Thugs) look at me if I'm crazy.
