I was 19 when that song came out.

Pity all the millennials who just had to live in the recently gentrified urban cores.

I turn my music up full so I don't hear others cars, or sirens. So I'm good.

Not many people are pedestrians. If you live in a sizeable city, particularly in California, a simple walk to a restaurant or store a few blocks leaves you deafened and exhausted. It's very loud all the time and crossing streets means running or getting hit. Then comes Trumpy McVoter on his Harley Oildripper. It's pretty bad and all I want is a tostada.

/ Wow I really want a tostada now.

Soooo... what you're saying is I might be able to free my commute up a little if I lay on the horn at that dick who is always in front of me doing 12 miles under the speed limit during rush hour?

I can attest.  When a guy with a loud motorcycle used to live across the street from me, I would tense up and my mood would change for the worse every time he came or went.  When a guy with two loud dogs used to live behind me, I wasn't sleeping well because they'd often bark very early in the morning and occasionally in the middle of the night.  Ear plugs didn't work.  In both cases, the police's response was: ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

My GP knew when the noise went away because my BP dropped so much.

Is that why I get feelings of murder whenever someone on a motorcycle decides it's a good idea to be excessively loud?

Here comes the curmudgeon brigade to remind us that anything above a library fart on a db meter is simply unacceptable.

Yes, yes, it's terrible that one of the expectations of living with the benefits of a modern society is that you're expected to show a modicum of respect to the other people around you who are also in it.

If your idea of fun involves regularly making a lot of noise, move out to the middle of nowhere. Other people expecting not to have you intruding on them isn't some great burden on you, you're just a selfsih dick.

Actually, I'd rather these people move to big cities with the rest of the racket.

Yup, I think we have our Harley Oildripper rider who likes to fire it up at 4am because freedom. Never mind the freedom of everyone else around you to just exist in relative peace.

 / I'm an old bass player. There's good loud and bad loud. I also sure as fark know the difference between those things and a library fart.

If your idea of an inconvenience is hearing a lot of noise, move out to the middle of nowhere. Other people having a good time didn't invite you, deal with it you selfish dick.

I don't have to, like most people living in suburban and exurban areas, I can just call the cops because it's against the law to be a loud, obnoxious dick where I live.

You guys can whine all you want, the reason so many localities and HOAs restrict noise, and boot or prosecute chronic offenders, is that you have no constitutional right to bother other people and you're in a tiny minority of assholes if you're doing it. The vast majority of people only occasionally make enough noise to bother others and most people let those occasions slide because of their infrequent nature.

Fact is, if you get hassled enough about doing it that you're getting offended, odds are you're just an inconsiderate dick and nobody really cares what you think because you've already made everyone else hate you.

Nobody wants to hear your shiatty music, your Boss Hog isnt cool, your singing voice sucks, burnouts only impress thirteen year old boys and that coffee can on the back of your car is just a silly joke you played on yourself.

Grow the fark up and act like an adult like everyone else did.

Why don't you go call some Iraqi veterans pussies to their face for getting jumpy during fireworks shows while you're at it. I DARE you.

/It's easier to think a loud noise isn't a big deal when you're the one making it

The loudest and most frequent vehicles around here are shipping trucks and school buses.   Perhaps I should start calling the cops on them, so I can join the uptight hand wringers club.

Yes, because fireworks = cars.   Legit analogy, completely.

Loud sudden noise = Loud sudden noise. Legit prick, completely.

And way to argue why you think people who find pointless loud noises annoying are uptight whiners. I don't mind if it's a fire truck or ambo, at least that serves a purpose. But some pathetic loser on his Harley who opens up his pipes cause he thinks it makes him a badass, having to hear one of those lame pricks disrupting my peace and quiet every 30 minutes on any day with decent weather? Loud for the sake of loud, or pointless noise, I see no reason why I should have to "just deal with it." If you have no legitimate reason to make the superfluous noise, just kindly EABOD and STFU. Kindly have your mid-life crisis quietly elsewhere, being annoying won't make us give more of a sh*t about your sorry excuse for a life.
