I hate it when they play obnoxious rap just to show everyone how gangsta they are. You don't see me playing Dragonforce on highest. (Although if someone played Dragonforce, I wouldn't mind, I love them.)
It does annoy me, I think it's bloody obnoxious, and that we invented earphones for that very purpose: so that you can keep that stupid music to yourself!
Plus, it's bound to do some damage in the long term. Medical journals recently published a few articles regarding the tendency of today's youths to listen to music on high volumes, and it's affecting their hearing. [sarcasm]Shocker.[sarcasm]
I know what you mean, it seriously annoys me when people play really chavvy music through their phones and their speakers are so crap it can't even be made out as a song. Not that that type of 'music' even qualifies anyway. Why should we all be forced to listen to their shite!
I no longer travel on buses to them being filled with obnoxious teenage wankers blaring shitty rap music through a crappy cell phone speakers. They're called headphones you bunch of inconsiderate ass-biters.
God... So much could be said for my hatred of these annoying bastards... Nothing like being woken up at like 5 in the morning because lil Johnny from down the street likes to blast his rap music.. Along with half the other freak'n town!!
It's always rap too! Very seldom do I hear something else being blasted... So that makes it worse considering I can't stand rap at all... I wish I had a magical button that I can press everytime a car goes by blasting garbage like that. Once pressed, their car automatically FLIPS OVER!! *rawr face!!*
I hate it when people do that even when It's a song I like. It's just rude and inconsiderate to those around you. Even when I was a leather-clad, safety pin wearing, patches sewn on the jacket, blue mohawk having punk punk. I still just used headphones (big can ones cuz this was the early 90's) or kept the music reasonable. Just because I like it doesn't mean everyone else should or will.
When it's playing so loud that I can make it out, as if I were the one with the headphones on, then it's too loud, no matter what genre/band/song you may be listening to. Craps! Don't you value your hearing? Probably why it's turned up so loud, you're going deaf!
But if it's just loud enough that I know someone's listening to music... I'm a little more lenient, but still... save your ears.
EDIT: This is when I'm on the bus, and yes, when you're on the bus you'd like your music loud enough that you can hear it, but you shouldn't make it so that it's completely drowning out the bus noise.
Depends on the kind of music. If it's that gangster rap shit then yeah it's fucking annoying. If it's country then yeah it's fucking annoying. If it's hip/hop or pop then yeah it's fucking annoying. If it's heavy metal or some screamo then TURN THAT SHIT UP!!!
