  • i feel like... omg happy bunny is chasing me again!
  • Na! i say if its too loud i must have a hangover.
  • I agree! Rock on freaky bro!
  • HUH?????!!! Whasssss thaaaaatttt??? Damn hearing aid....
  • true most of the time but in some cases no, like if in a band, the instruments are too loud for the singer, then its too loud!
  • I disagree. I never liked loud music, even when I was younger. Although, I have moments, with certain songs, when I just feel the *need* to turn it up.
  • I don't like it, because I'm 23 and I have NEVER understood the point of turning music up loud enough to deafen yourself. I hate it when someone listens to head phones at a volume where you can hear it across the room. I have extra-sensitive hearing I think though. A lot of times I will hear something that no one else does. (Not crazy like, but say the phone rings and it's outside in the front, you are all the way in the back part of the house, I'll hear it and no one else will.)
  • I worship at the altar of Nigel Tufnel...;-D... . . .
  • Don't agree, I've always been sensitive to my hearing. I need to be able to differentiate the lyrics from the rest of the music... when it's so loud you can't clearly make out anything but the drums, it's too loud. If I can hear it when I go outside, it's too loud, if the car next to me can hear it, it's too loud. I don't want to go around with a ringing in my ears because I didn't control the volume of my music, so I've always been conscious of that. Respect for others, it's my music, and others may not appreciate it. I hope that others would do the same.
  • I think its great, I'm investing a large portion of my retirement fund in hearing aides because with the current trend towards louder and louder music listening devices (whether its the ear buds, or the sub woofers in your car) a person who listens to loud music consistently from their teen years on will sustain a 30% hearing loss by their mid thirties. So rock on, you're financing my golden years!
  • To me that reminds me that I went to MANY concerts in my life where you could still hear the lead gutarist playing in your left ear the next day! I say huh and what a whole lot these days! lol
  • Oh no. I can't stand loud music. I turn it up louder than what might be normal for most people, but no so loud that I can't hear myself talk.
  • I guess that I have been too old since I was a minor. I have never liked really loud music. I value my hearing too much to abuse it with overly loud music. If the music is so loud that you have to shout to be heard over it, then it is too loud. I have also never really like the music of my people my age. So, I also find it annoying when people drive up the road with their radios blasting, forcing every one to listen to music that they might otherwise choose not to listen to.
  • I think it's a crock. I like the volume up a little, but when I can't hear anything else or it may be disturbing others...it is too loud.
  • If its too loud, its not may age, its my new hearing aids that need adjustment. This is why i need hearing aids......LOUD MUSIC!
  • That would actually contradict its self because older people need to hear sounds at a higher level rather than a young person, so I don't agree wit the statement.
  • In my case, if I find something too loud it is loud. Noise causes hearing loss, it is smart to complain about loud music or loud noises. Wearing hearing aid in some areas or situations is as smart as wearing sun block lotion on a hot and sunny day.
  • Don't agree, because I can't hear crap after many years of attending concerts. Besides, I'd rather have a conversation at 'inside voices' level, than be screaming into someone's ear that's sitting right next to me.
  • I've lived by that moto since I was a teen. Rock on.
  • I have no problem with that statement and in my case it is probably true.
  • I completely agree. Unless it's literally about to damage your ear drums beyond all repair.
  • Haha. That's my motto. I like my music loud. It's far more enjoyable if it can surround you. It's doesn't HAVE to make your ears bleed, but hey. sometimes you have to sacrifice for the good of the musical experience.
  • Disagree. How loud your music is played has nothing to do with age. My 84 year old Grandpa has his radio up so darn loud that have the neighborhood can usually hear it..
  • i would have to say i mostl;y agree with a few random exceptions cuz my grandma cant hear just fine and grounds me if i dont have the sound turned all the way up.
  • It's not loudness that concerns me, just turn off your crappy music or I'll flush ya fone!!
  • I have never understood this statement, the older you get your hearing drops off so you need your music louder, so it would figure that the louder your music, the older you are.
  • I feel that if you're too loud means you're either deaf, or stupid. I can't stand people who feel tyhey have to share their music with me from a 5 block radius. BTw I love loud whe I'm in a club.
  • I was at a party and the music was so loud that my husband's heart was getting affected. I guess we are too old cause we just turned down an invitation to another party at the same place.
  • You guys mind keeping it down in here?
  • My husband and I argue all the time because he listens to music too loud. I can't stand it when it's so loud that it hurts my ears. I don't mind if he listens to music, but does it have to be so loud? Okay, so call me old, but I'll bet I'll be able to hear when we're in our 80's. He mumbles under his breath at me, but I can hear him. I just don't understand the attraction to listening to music so loud.
  • That's Right! I'm too old. Now turn it down like you're told!
  • Based on personal experience with listening to metal and having an old dad i would say yes i agree with it.
