I Crank the Stereo Way Up When I'm Driving

    Opposite Effect

    I love cranking it up really loud when I'm alone in my car and rocking out like a madman. What's funny, is after a little while, it actually starts to put me to sleep. Blaring heavy metal music is stress reducing, apparently.

    Driving Seems To Be A Great Stress Reliever!

    Have you ever blown a speaker in your car from listening to your music too loud? Gotten dirty looks for the genre in which you are listening to? I have.. Just about every day I drive! I try to not be an ******* in my every day life, and I'd say I have succeeded with that goal...

    It's Part of My Alone Time

     It doesn't matter what I'm listening to, I have a lot of favorites and I'm just as likely to drive around with Pantera blasting out of the speakers as The Kinks or The Beatles. If I'm alone in the car the stereo will be cranked up high enough to rattle the doors and windows...

    I Like It Loud Too

    I too love to drive with the music blasting. Its pretty much the only time I can listen to music that loud. I live in a house with 2 other other apartments so I really cant do it at home.

    Especially When I Really Like The Song

    It's easy to tell just how much or how little I like a certain song can all be told in the volume of the radio at the time. the more I like a song the louder the radio gets.

    I turn it up as loud as possible, makes me actually feel more relaxed because it absolves me from having to the do the obligatory "pulling over".... I always get where I going ... Cause I never heard the sirens. (**zenzenzend**)

    Cranking It Up!

    When I am in the car the radio is usually blaring, and I am singing along at the top of my lungs! Sometimes I think I embarrass my two kids with my singing, my air guitar, my drumming on the dashboard! But oh well...if they don't like it they can walk right? Lol I just love the...

    Yes I Do Yes, I listen to music when I`m upset. It helps calm me down. I`d rather listen to music, then do something stupid that I would regret for the rest of my life.
