OMG Marching Season at volume 10 is Heaven on Earth

Their plan would have worked had their neighbors not been teenage dirtbags, baby.
 
2013-04-30 11:04:55 AM  
The Cranberries would have been real torture.

So what was the whistling noise? Was someone actually whistling cionstantly or was it something else? I MUST KNOW!
 
2013-04-30 11:06:05 AM  
Iron Maiden? EXCELLENT!
 
2013-04-30 11:06:23 AM  
I could use their help with the rednecks behind me who are always blasting honkeytonk 80s country music.  I'm going to start flinging dog poop into their pool if they don't find a new station.
 
2013-04-30 11:06:25 AM  
They should have gone with Number of the Beast.  Anything past 7th Son just doesn't work for me.  But that's still pretty cool.

As the years roll by, Iron Maiden remains one of the greatest rock bands of all time.

Up the Irons!

Yanni Live at the Accr. is one of my top ten favs!
 
2013-04-30 11:07:41 AM  
They should have blasted  this.  (Not Safe For Sanity)
 
2013-04-30 11:09:17 AM  
Favourite tunes for blasting enemies and blighting the face of the land:

"The Rose"
"Mule Skinner Blues"
anything sung by the once famous Mrs. Miller
"patriotic" country and western songs
anything patriotic sung by Ashcroft
The American National Anthem ("Ode to Anacreon in Heaven") sung by any celebrity that baseball is attempting to capitalize on, for example, Roseanne (Barr)
anything that has been over-played by the radio for the last six months, even if it was good at first
 
2013-04-30 11:09:44 AM  
They should have played "Iron Maiden Does Zamfir."  Now that is tantamount to a war crime.

It's Sweden so they were probably playing "Joyride" over and over.

My redneck neighbors were having an epic redneck outdoor husband and wife screaming match for over 3 hours, I so badly wanted to point my stereo out the window and blare "You're the Reason our Kids are Ugly" but common sense won out.
 
2013-04-30 11:11:12 AM  
Don't tell me that the address was 22 Acacia Ave and the blasted the music at 2 minutes to midnight?
 
2013-04-30 11:12:30 AM  
Ring ring ring ring ring ring, banana phone....
 
2013-04-30 11:13:12 AM  
WHAT'S GOING AWN
and I said heyy heyy heyyy yeah

And that song is like the only thing worse than f*cking
TRADGEDIEEEE!

/damn, now I need ear bleach
 
2013-04-30 11:13:29 AM  
If my neighbors blasted me with Maiden, I'd buy them beer and tell them to turn it up.
 
2013-04-30 11:14:25 AM  
UP THE IRONS!

Got tickets to see them in September!
 
2013-04-30 11:14:52 AM  
In the mist dark figures move and twist
was all this for real or some kind of hell?

SIX SIX SEVEN ...THE NEIGHBOR OF THE BEAST!
Hell and fire were spawned for Weber BBQ feasts!

You should also include

80's Power Ballads
"I will Always Love You" - Whitney Houston
That damned song from Titanic
"Suspicious Minds" - Elvis
"A Day in the Life" - The Beatles

Tom_Slick: That damned song from Titanic


So this guy walks into an Irish pub with a long package under his arm.  The bartender says "What is that?", and the guy replies "3 pounds of Semtex", and the bartender says "Praise be to Jaysus.  I thought it was a low whistle".

Really? I think it's a pretty good song.

heavymetal: UP THE IRONS!

Got tickets to see them in September!


Have fun!  Saw them at Summerfest last July 4th.  Unfortunately the stage was too small for all the Eddies.

Oh, and I want to add that blasting Nickelback would have been the winnar at pissing anyone off.
 
2013-04-30 11:20:07 AM  
They should have blasted David Hasselhoff. Hot Shot City is particularly good.
 
2013-04-30 11:20:07 AM  

Tom_Slick: "A Day in the Life" - The Beatles


OK, I agree with your other choices, but A Day in the Life?

Come at me, bro.

/Cotton-Eyed Joe - Rednex
 
2013-04-30 11:22:16 AM  
I would have used Rebecca Black's "Friday"
 
2013-04-30 11:24:07 AM  
Afraid to Shoot Strangers? That's not a very rawkin' song.
 
2013-04-30 11:24:37 AM  
Any old pop music from the 80s would work fine, the high pitch would be enough to do them in. Mushroomhead would be effective too.

i would have used anything by SONATA ARCTICA

Go here for some really great bad music.

2013-04-30 11:27:12 AM  
Metal Machine Music by Lou Reed is my current choice to get back at noisy neighbours.
 
2013-04-30 11:27:18 AM  
I would have gone with The Shaggs - My Pal Foot Foot.
 
2013-04-30 11:27:57 AM  
The answer for all your sonic warfare needs: bagpipes.

It doesn't matter what the noise coming from the neighbors is, bagpipes cut right though it.  Rap, heavy metal, Yanni: it's not going to be enough to stop the drone.  They're the only musical instrument classed as a weapon of war.

/I'd have asked the couple to crank Number of the Beast...
 
2013-04-30 11:28:30 AM  
What they really needed was a giant inflatable Eddie head rise up over their house and stare down on the neighbor.
 
2013-04-30 11:28:54 AM  
If they really wanted to torture them they could just blasted Axel Foley's theme from the Beverly Hills Cop movies.

/They'd continue to hear it even after it was turned off.
//Just like you are now.
 
2013-04-30 11:29:08 AM  
"Live at the Acropolis" is an EXCELLENT album.
 
2013-04-30 11:29:46 AM  
\m/

(Would have gone with Canibal Corpse for the lulz)
 
2013-04-30 11:30:38 AM  
Scream for me Sweden!!
 
2013-04-30 11:31:04 AM  
Is this the couple?

2013-04-30 11:32:53 AM  
"New Millenium Cyanide Christ" by Meshuggah should do the trick (or anything else from Chaosphere. Or obZen. Or...fark, just anything by Meshuggah).

Dimmu Borgir probably works as well.

// although this is Sweden, where pensioners are metalheads
// so maybe some Lawrence Welk, turned up well past 11 (just so they can hear it)
 
2013-04-30 11:35:00 AM  
I actually like Yanni...

"Smells Like Teen Spirit" by Miley Cyrus induces psychosis on just three applications.
 
2013-04-30 11:37:47 AM  
I take offense to the fact that these old fookers consider that retaliation. MAIDEN IS A REWARD!

Why do bagpipers march while playing?
To get away  from the music

/love bagpipes
