Why do people blast their music so loudly . . . are they deaf??

Ok, I know I've had my share of pumping up the volume with my favorite music, but it's never been THAT loud. Why do people have to turn up the music in their cars when they're on the road . . . or at parties where people can't even hear themselves speak? What is so appealing about damaging your ear drums like that?
