This isn't everywhere, but more and more cities are passing and enforcing sound ordinances. It is strike against things like cars with sound systems that are more valuable than the actual car, that cruise around with a majorly jacked up sound. How loud do you like your music?
I like classic rock from the 60s and 70s- stuff like the Doors, Beatles, the Who.
At times I feel like turning it up above normal, but I would never turn it up so loud in my car that people half a mile away could here me. I asked this kid once why he, and his friends, did that and why they spend like nothing on car, and so much on a sound system. No comment on the second part, but the first part he said was a power statement.
There are times that loud music is good. However, for most of the times, e.g., nighttime, when most people are resting, or even daytime, when the place is calm and quiet, it means that the people living in the place don't like noise - I don't think I will have loud music, only soft that I can't disturb others. But, during parties, concerts, of course, it is usually loud music.
There are certain songs/music that I enjoy listening to loud while driving... but that only really takes place when I'm driving on the highway, either with the windows up or down, and it doesn't disturb anyone. I tend to turn the volume down, or put the windows up, when I'm in local traffic.
A couple of days someone pulled into my neighbors driveway, went inside, left the running with the stereo blasting, and after ten minutes I started to get annoyed. I finally made a fake trip to the mail box, and on the way back gave the death stare into their window, and then someone scooted outside to turn the car off. Luckily that doesn't happen often. I used to have neighbors that did that all the time.
I saw the movie, but I did not like it that much. Oliver Stone, in general, I have found gets a kick out of taking historical events and turning them into ridiculous soap operas. That movie he did about Alexander the Great was a joke.
sorry, if *I* can hear your music from your car and the windows are rolled up then it's too loud - to say nothing of the damage it's doing to your ears... be considerate!!!
That's pretty much how I feel. Do you ever wonder, though, why it is that, knowing what that sound can do to your ears, people will buy an old piece of junk car, and then put a high-tech sound system, made for like a theatre, in it. Of course, theft is usually brought into the discussion.
