Normal Your neighbors' music listening habits

My downstairs neighbor is currently listening to 1979 by Smashing Pumpkins. And he is singing. Badly.

On the positive side, this certainly beats the 311, Puddle of Mudd, and Linkin Park he usually listens to.

So please, feel free to complain about (or praise) your neighbors' listening habits here.

Oh my god. I've had all the neighbors with horrible musical tastes. My sophomore year, the girls in the dorm next to us listened to nothing but Britney, 'Nsync, Mariah Carey and Ricky Martin. When my roommate and I got really pissed at them, we blasted a tape of 80s cheese metal she had made--quiet riot, ratt, etc. I'm sure they loved that!

My first year in my apartment, the guy downstairs was obsessed with Nirvana. He also played guitar, so he would sing Nirvana songs constantly. Drove me fucking nuts, and almost made me hate the band. He also blasted lots of Counting Crows (ugh) and too this day, hearing Mr. Jones makes me want to kill someone. That same year, the girls above me listened to lots of Lionel Ritchie.

My one roommate listened to lots of Avril and Eminem....

my nieghbors must die.

all that john mayer, jason mraz, counting crows, goo goo dolls shit was bad enough. that's basically what they listen to 99% of the time. and that one 50 cent song. the one about many men. oh how i hate that song. the ultimate low was the night they were listening to the spice girls.

last year i had some fucktard blasting the darkness 'i believe in a thing called love' over and over. they'd angle the speakers out the window like everyone else wanted that song on repeat. i was using a shitty pair of headphones as speakers with the volume turned up, and there were days where i couldn't even hear my music over theirs. this same fucktard went through similar coldplay and van halen phases.

one night i heard some girls listening to dropkick murphys 'kiss me i'm shitfaced', and i stuck my head in the door to tell them i approved of their choice in music (hey, i wasn't that arrogant about it, i was in fact dorky enough that they gave me a wierd look and didn't even dignify my comment with a response). but that's not exaclty what i'd call great DKM...now if i heard someone blasing the extended dance mix of 'pipebomb on lansdowne', i'd be their best friend.


everyone else who's music invades my earspace on a regular basis listens to standard mainstream rap

The kids behind us had a birthday party a few months back and were blarring "Kidz Bop" all day long. (For those who don't know "Kidz Bop" is when they have squeaky-voiced children cover songs by Beyonce, Britney, Christina and so on).

When I lived in the dorms at school, there was a room of guys who lived across the hall... I loved them because their music playlist was almost the exact same as mine!

In fact, one Saturday afternoon I had just listened to Jet's "Are You Gonna Be My Girl" and they played, not 5 seconds after my song was finished, "Cold Hard Bitch"

Silly me, I never actually went over and met them

I live in a dorm. My next door neighbor is cool. He plays U2, Bowie, Modest Mouse, Blue Man Group. Oh, and Ben Folds, Darren Jesse. Go past that, though.... I get this one room that plays EVERYTHING really loud. Sometimes it's good, Van Morrison, etc. But most of the time it's 50 Cent or in one weird night the Backstreet Boys. Full volume. In guys' dorm. In 2004. Mostly people here play country and rap. People probably think I'm fucking weird though. At its loudest, it's usually U2, Flogging Molly, Dropkick Murphys, The Pogues, Tom Waits, The Clash, Ben Folds, Radiohead, and Johnny Cash. Oh and Bob Marley. So I'm moslty inconsistant, except for the celtic reocurring thing.

My place is blissfully quiet, I got so lucky.

At my last apartment in TN I lived above some frat boys who blasted Phish bootlegs ALL THE TIME. I could not move out fast enough. I would now like to recite one of the songs they played most often, in tribute to those awesome young men.


Let's go out to dinner and see a movie
Let's go out to dinner and see a movie
Let's go out to dinner
And see a movie
Let's go out to dinner and see a movie


oh yeah!

The mini fahs listen to Avril Lavigne and Hilary Duff.

Next month I'm taking the older two to see Ms Lavigne in concert.



It's just a phase, it's just a phase....
