Drives me crazy! Do you guys see (HEAR) this on a regular basis too? It is typically some idiot who is purposefully trying to annoy the people around them.

Loudly repeating whatever gangster rap (and I like gangster rap) or whatever trash they are listening to on their headphones. "**** you *****, I shoot yo ass, die die die, gun shot sounds, *****."

OMG, s t f u!

For me, this is even more annoying than bums, etc.

What do you guys think?

I very rarely see this, but I often am sitting next to some guy whose earbuds are so loud that I can hear his crappy manufactured fake electronic drum beats over my own headphones. How do they not go deaf?

Maybe they're already partially are & hence the cranked up volume.

I've always been amazed by this phenomenon, the young idiot rapping the most ridiculous lyrics out loud. It's as if they think it's impressive.

No, it's quite stupid, actually, no one is impressed.

^, yeah basically, i agree.....

any type of music in the subways is annoying, how about waiting for a train and a "wanna be" group is performing?, its annoying and disruptive.
people are tired and have thoughts of what they are going to do, go, etc....no one wants to hear "noise" they call music.

its annoying.

How about singing aloud some Air Supply songs? Would that make it better?

Definitely has always been a peeve of mine. Would give you rep points but says I have to spread them around.

Yup. Also all or the overwhelming majority of times I've heard this, it has been gangster rap. The other thing I've noticed is people who are banging/dipping their head in an exaggerated manner and swinging all around. It's not as annoying as the noise but I find it just to be some sort of attention grabber and not something that should be done with tons of people around.

Of course, if there were going to be a list of annoyances on the subway, the head banging would not even come in in the top 10. Just thought I would mention it since it sort of related to topic at hand.
