Noisy Neighbors. ( Playing Music Too Loud )

United States
September 8, 2007 10:51am CST
It doesn't where I move, I always seem to have that one disrespectful neighbor that doesn't care what time of day or night it is they want to blast their music as loud as possible. The neighbors this morning were blasting music bright and early at 7 AM to the point it was vibrating the house. I try not to do that ever because I think it's rude and that not everyone wants to hear my music. The only times I do do it is when I feel the need to let them know that my stereo is louder and I'll drown your own music down if you don't turn it down. SO, I'm asking - what do you think of this type of noisy neighbor?

I hate them. We had a night last week when the people across the street decided to blast rap music at us. I've got nothing against rap music, some if it is actually very intelligent. But this was so loud that all you could hear was beat -- the words were muffled out. Which vibrated the house. On top of that, my son was sleeping before they started, my dog was freaking out and my cat went absolutely nuts because of the vibrations. What is the point of listening to it so loud that you can't understand any of it???

loudmusic - for the deaf ones
I understand how you feel. It's just pointless to listen to music with all the vibrations and the words are unclear anymore. Maybe they're doing that to get noticed. I'd wish they'd face the speakers to themselves and not the neighbors. Well, here in my location that's a very rare occasion. Because the people around wouldn't really have second thought of calling the police or throw stones at them. *LOL* We live in a decent area so people are quite respectful. We all know how to deal with these pests. You should hesitate to tell on them though. It's better than giving them their fun while you are not really comfortable in your own home. Good luck!

I understand you, our neighbors are making lots of noise too. Sometimes they also blast their music in the morning, but most of the time they are making so much noise by arguing with each other. A fighting match in the morning seems like a normal thing to them.

A fighting match seemed normal for me and my ex-husband as well but I've always tried to keep that stuff inside, I'd go outside to cool off and to get control of my thoughts. I do that now as well.

I understand how you feel. I have two neighbor who think everyone whats to hear that crap they like to listen to. I don't think blasting your music will help much. It may just send the signal that it is OK to play your music loud everyone seems to be doing it. If you know your neighbors and feel comfortable talking to them you should tell them to not play their music so loud or so early. My Income For Life http://www.jaxdomain.ws

We have a few people around here that are like that. Thankfully, they seem to generally be kind of quiet at night, mostly on class nights, but I'm fine with that. I don't get as pissed on weekends when you're loud because I don't have anywhere to be the next day. I find it sad though people don't have a general respect for those around them. I've dealt with a lot of rude neighbors that find it excellent to blast music and sing terribly at the top of their lungs and pretend that no one can hear them when confronted about it later.

It is really inconsiderate to make noisy to bother others. We have to be a nice neighbor because we have a saying here: A far away relative can't be better than a close neighbor. So I try to keep a good relationship with my neighbors. But if your neighbor is so annoying, I suggest you have a talk with him in peace. If there is no improvement, then maybe you have to call the police to help you to stop the noise.

I think you should talk to them on the phone nicely and ask them if they could be just a little bit considerate of other people's right. I believe you are not the only neighbor who suffered that annoyance. If still they won't listen, I think you should report them to somebody of authority in your area. That is public nuisance.

thats well said you will put your stereo louder when you want them to know you too can play loud music but dont. what to say my friend some people need too much energy at 7 in the morning to wake them up, perhaps they are all sleeping inside. smiles and GOD BlesS, apple.

We have one neighbor that blasts their music every morning while the lady does housework. It's annoying but I ignore it for the most part - except (just like you) when I feel the need to show them who has the better system and let'er rip! I've never had neighbors like that anywhere else so it's been a real learning experience

i don't like this kind of neighbours.i understand if they have occasionaly a birthday or a party or something but not alll the time.i guess they must think that they aren't living alone in the forest where noone can hear them.this kind of people should learn to respect the other people living next to them.i love music but i am not listen to music at maximum and i don't disturb my neighbours.we should respect the fact that we live in a comunity of people and have the same rights

That is really disrespectful. I can see how you feel. I would also get very annoyed about that noise. I would never do this when people are still having their sound sleep. Hope your neighbour knows it is wrong and will never play loud music any more.

I think they are some selfish to some extent.they ignore others' existance.different people have different rituals,so they should take consideration into others' thoughts.under this circumstance,I think you can just have a talk with them and ask them to stop.

i have many roommates,when we want to hear the music,the room is noisy,i think we have to let them know that the music or some voice must be accept .at less they have to let the people near them feel nice.

Well, with those neighbors I wouldn't mind taking my what seems to be 20 pound art history book and beating them with it. That may be the only way to beat sense into them. I live in a college apartment so I do feel your pain.
