    This is what Wikipedia has to say about it:

    "Noise music is a term used to describe varieties of avant-garde music and sound art that may use elements such as cacophony, dissonance, atonality, noise, indeterminacy, and repetition in their realization. Noise music can feature distortion, various types of acoustically or electronically generated noise, randomly produced electronic signals, and non-traditional musical instruments. Noise music may also incorporate manipulated recordings, static, hiss and hum, feedback, live machine sounds, custom noise software, circuit bent instruments, and non-musical vocal elements that push noise towards the ecstatic"

    I've always been a fan of noise and noise rock. From Lou Reed's Metal Machine Music (1975) to Destroy All Monster's Silver Wedding Anniversary (1996) to Sonic Youth's Daydream Nation (1988) to Merzbow's 1930 (1998). You can't go wrong with a few of the bands from the No Wave scene in New York either.

    Now Hear This: Loud Sound May Pose More Harm Than We Thought
    March 14, 2017 — Matt Garlock has trouble making out what his friends say in loud bars, but when he got a hearing test, the result was normal. Recent research may have found an explanation for problems like his, something called "hidden hearing loss."
