I wish I had one of these a few years ago. I lived in a duplex in what seemed to be a seedy part of town. There were a lot of duplexes and quads nearby, all of them rentals. I can't count the number of times cars have driven by with their bass turned up so loud, the whole house vibrated.
I remember my ex-roommate and I countering the music being played in the apartment that was above ours. A mother and her teenage son lived above us after the guy that lived there when we moved in, moved out. The mother worked the late shift at Waffle House. Her son was a teenager who was an Eminem wannabe.
My CD collection consisted of mostly Classic Rock and Classical music. My ex-roommate's collection consisted of mostly Country and current Rock/Pop, as well as a bit of Rap/Hip Hop, mainly Eminem.
The son always had friends over, and they played the Rap/Hip Hop music at very loud levels, sometimes in the middle of the night. My friend and I would counter this with either a Classic Rock CD, or better yet, a Country CD, or tune the receiver on my stereo to a Country station. I had several local stations preset, including a couple of Country stations. We'd also tune to the Classic Rock station from time to time.
The mother wasn't as bad, I think mainly because she slept most of the day, even on the weekends. I only recall two or three times she had her music turned up loud, which was Country. We countered this with either Rap/Hip Hop, or we'd tune the receiver to the local Alternative/New Rock station. Within minutes of having done so they'd turn their music down, so we did the same. What followed afterwards was anywhere between 15 minutes to several hours of peace and quiet.
If this comic was around back then, or if I knew about it back then (2002-2004), I think I would have pulled something similar. I think I would have played the selections in the comic, or worse, Cher's "Believe" or something by Ace of Base.
There's always "Dragostea Din Tei"...
