It's been a while since I made a thread that didn't involve sexual abuse.

Quote by You know which news source I like
For many, teenagers playing tinny music to each other on public transport on their mobile phones can be intensely irritating. Why do they do it?

With mobile phones in many a teenager's pocket, the rise of sodcasting - best described as playing music through a phone in public - has created a noisy problem for a lot of commuters.

"All you can hear is 'dush, dush, dush, dush'. It's irritating. So many times I end up with a headache," says Tracey King, who has signed up to the Shhh! Scheme set up by bus company Arriva Yorkshire to stop the noise on their services.

"As teenagers, they don't seem to have the capability to think about others. I have heard older women turning round and saying 'will you turn that down?' and sometimes they will… and other times I've heard them with abuse and swearing at other people."


More info in the article.

Personally, I find it annoying when people blast music through their phones. I think I speak for many people when I say that not everyone likes the music the blaster person is blasting [whatever music that may be], which is why I use this magnificent invention called headphones.

What do you think?

Public transport is for peasants. Peasants are usually stupid hence why they can only afford public transport. Then because of their stupidity they are unable to understand how their music can irritate others.

Last time I walked around blasting music out of my phone I got beat up. People just don't want to listen some classical music I tells ya.
They made me do push ups in drag

I'm gonna have a really hard time if we're both cannibals and racists.

At least they're not carrying boom boxes around.


Apple probably made an iBoombox and other teens are lining up at the Apple Store to buy one.

Never seen someone do that, but I've seen plenty of people blast the volume so loud you can hear it 5 feet away from them, with the earbuds in their ears.

They don't have headphones bacuase they stole the phone in the first place

When I was in middle school, kids used to do this in class. I don't want to hear what the hell you're listening to, buy a pair of headphones.

Yep that's very annoying I would say this to those guys who wear Dr. Dre'
Instead of buying some stupid headphones you don't use, buy us some ear protection

Because they're disgusting excuses for human beings.

Although it is fun playing some form of tech metal, or even better, a classical song, in order to drown them out.

The funny thing is though, when we do it we get beat up
and when they do, nothing happens, Solution: BEAT THEM UP!

Is there an underlying theme of rape, child molestation or other related sex crimes to this thread?

Some girl was playing music on her phone in the middle of a graduation ceremony last weekend. I wanted to smack a ho.

Actually, a lot of middle aged men were thinking about raping the teenagers that do this.

Were we only supposed to think this?

I remember on the way to school I saw to kids that go to a junior school walking with Eminem blasting out their phones. They looked like they were 7/8. Bastards intimidated me.

I hate it when people listen to annoying chavvy shit like Tinie Tempah. The only time i do it is if the bus isn't very busy, or if I want to show my mate a song.
