Sounds like the premise of a Midsomer Murders

I didn't even have to Google the song. It was right there on the page. Now that's good fark journalism.

If you play that song twice, I will be obliged to kill you. It's like something that would be on my Grandparent's 72s. I wonder what happened to those old records? Some of them might be archival or worth a goodly sum of money by now.

If the dispute had been over the neighbors playing loud crappy music, hitting them back with even louder, crappier music would br giving them what they deserved. In this case, not so much.

Thunderdome duels.  That is the only answer.

Mr McRobert said: "It's the accused's position this is not a one-way street and she had been subjected to noise and banging and name-calling and the like."

The problem, of course, is that your stupid farking client admitted it when the police asked why her speakers were pushed up against the wall.

After listening to 15 seconds of it, no jury would convict you.

If yoiu were playing 78s at 72 RPM, that could get annoying quickly.

When I finally was driven out by the meth-heads who moved in next door, I played this (on repeat) for hours while we were loading up the moving vans: https://www.youtube.com?v=40-sqYN13SU

They parked their van in front of her house. It's in the article.

She went nuclear.

Long ago I lived next to some really terrible college bros who refused to acknowledge that anyone else had to get up early to go to work, and they'd party all crazy hours.
My solution was to build a couple of 1000W super-low response subs and run them from opposite ends of the house angled in at their place, at a 5Hz differential below 30Hz.  These guys went insane trying to figure out what the barely audible, yet brain pounding hum was.

It wasnt annoying. It was soothing.

I had to do this to a neighbor once.  When we lived in a townhouse in Pontiac, we had a neighbor who liked to listen to Tijano music very loudly just about every evening.  It was enough to disturb the entire family.
One day our revenge was exacted.  I queued up an mp3 of the "Halloween 3 Montage" music - some better know this as that annoying "8 more days to halloween" music that played throughout the movie "Halloween 3".  Of course, it was played at full volume and continuous loop.
That must have been effective because we never heard their music again.

Sounds

like you beat them at their own game...

I was once stuck in the back of an old 3-engine jetliner that had two of the nacelles mounted on either side of the rear cabin.

The throttles were set so the RPM were just a fraction of a Hertz apart.   It was 4 hours of torture.  Earplugs don't do shiat for subsonics.

The best part about the truly terrible neighbor is that anything you do you look like equal parts crazy. The only way to truly escape the torture is to escape the nightmare neighbors notice.
My mother's neighbor has been campaigning to get the city to put down my mother's dog. She calls the police every time my brother or I visit (neither of us have met her) and tells them we're threatening her. Once my mother caught her on video pouring urine on their boat cover. She installed cameras facing my mother's house and posted four fake security system warning signs on the property line facing my mother's house. She installed a chain link fence on the property line with my mother's house. She purchased an additional dock to try to physically block the neighborhood dock (they aren't allowed to be within 8 feet) by installing it at a 45 degree angle.
Writing this out feels crazy. As far as I know my mother didn't start it or do anything to deserve that treatment. Generally the natural response is to wonder aloud what my mother did to elicit this treatment.

Crazy people will make you crazy because there is no logic in their broken thinking. She has major mental problems.

I walked into the neighbor's backyard and flipped the breaker on their house at 2am.  They didn't figure it out until the morning. Ended up doing it one more time before they got the message.
