If your taste in music sucks, you don’t get to complain about the noise.

I got on the elevator yesterday, and there were a couple girls on it from the floor above me. They asked if we were always having parties, because they could hear the noise through the floor. Now, my flatmates tend to be rather loud; for the past few nights they (and sometimes I) have been playing classic rock at a high volume and drinking in the kitchen. I apologized to the two girls above me, and actually felt bad for a moment–I’ve lived around people who are too loud when you’re trying to sleep and it sucks. I was sitting on my computer, wondering if I should say something to my flatmates or just hope that they quieted down once classes started, and lo and behold one of the aforementioned girls’ song libraries came up shared on iTunes. She has at least five tracks by the following artists:

  • Ashlee Simpson
  • Avril Lavigne
  • Backstreet Boys
  • Britney Spears
  • Christina Aguilera
  • Green Day (which would be okay if it weren’t for the fact that the only album she has is American Idiot)
  • Gwen Stefani
  • Justin Timberlake
  • Kelly Clarkson
  • Pink>
  • Savage Garden
  • The Pussycat Dolls

These artists made up the bulk of her library, except for a few artists I didn’t recognize (probably terrible British pop artists). I no longer feel bad about the noise complaint; actually, I’m considering buying a pair or really large speakers, pointing them directly at the ceiling, and playing the Dead Kennedys on repeat.

  1. who cares about their track list? the real question is are they cute? ;)


  2. So, what’s the result? I did that once with my neighbours, and they still frown at me when I get out for disposing of my garbage can…
