Because i noticed whenever i am out and about and sitting in traffic this car or truck always pulls up playing rap that i can hear clearly and the rap is mostly about busting a cap up someone's butt and such, instead of proper music like heavy metal or rock.

Perhaps it needs to be organized. OK tomorrow is Uncle Ted day and everyone needs to be driving down the street with their stereo pumping out full blast...

95% cRap and the other 5% is a mixture of country, pop and R&B.
Never anything good like we used to blast

There seems to be a mindset that believes that one can compensate for low quality and lack of artistic value in “music” by playing it louder. Since crap is the very lowest form of auditory garbage, it therefore follows that those who choose to listen to it are the ones who think that it needs to be played most loudly.

Your heavy metal or rock are really only a slight step above crap, hence a preference on the part of those who want to listen that garbage, to play it loudly.

Real music does not need to be played at absurd volume to be enjoyed, and, in fact, doing so generally tends to detract greatly from it.

For those who are unfamiliar with the sound of real music, I present this example, Serenade to Music by Ralph Vaughan Williams.

Maybe it's rap where you live but it was TECHNO when I lived in the City.

But in answer to your question, name me one touring ROCK band under the age of 50. Ditto heavy metal. All of the new music the kids are playing is obnoxious, but then I am reminded that every generation's music pisses off its parents, so they're just doing what kids do.

In most jurisdictions, there are local ordinances regulating how much noise it is permissible to make in residential or business areas. Unfortunately, these laws are nearly always very poorly enforced.

Doesn't matter what kind of music it is. The point is that it is a desperate cry for attention by an arrested-development, insecure child.
no it isn't
What other sort of nominal person would feel a need to impose his choice in auditory garbage on everyone within a block or two?

Those laws likely exist however if you enforce it you know who is getting fined and that would be rayyyccissss.

I think there should be a law against putting the "N Word" in songs.
All perpetrators arrested and put in prison.
That would silence them.

Back in the day, when they actually made good music, the sound systems were for crap for the most part.

Now that we have the shittiest music of all time, the sound systems are great.

Talk about irony, eh?

The public nuisance laws are pretty hard to enforce on a moving target. Some guy drove by playing loud music I didn't like, is apt to bring a shrug from the cops.

We used public nuisance laws to shut down the neighbor with the karioke machine who sang to us every Saturday afternoon with the windows open. Off key. For hours. But that's the only time I've even heard of them being used to good effect. The neighbors asked her to turn it down or close her windows, and she told us she could make as much noise as she wanted until 11:00 p.m. so fuck you.

The cops gave her one warning, and said if they had to come back, they'd be writing her a $500 ticket. The problem ceased immediately.
