Yes loud music damages your hearing. If you work in a loud place ( like a factory, or a night club) you will have problems in the future with your hearing. I think that persons who work in loud places should wear some equipment to reduce the exposure to high sounds.

yes loud music can damage the hearing , the sound should be of a favorable frequency so that your ears are not damaged otherwise you can become deaf with too much of noise pollution.

It not only can, it does, if you get enough exposure. Industrial deafness comes from various types of sound generated by electrical or mechanical sources. It will damage the inner ear, and the best known result is a condition called tinnitus. Severe forms can cause actual deafness, although some sufferers, (notably rock musicians) say that the ringing in the ears from the "milder" form is worse. Apparently it really is continuous noise in the ears. Steer clear of direct exposure to loud sound systems, and any machinery where there's an oscillator effect. Even a lawn mower, or a leaf blower, can do injury. Machinery can also damage your upper range of hearing, to the point of being "tone deaf". Most forms of industrial deafness are treatable in their onset and early stages, but there is a point where you really can lose your hearing.
