I Crank the Stereo Way Up When I'm Driving

    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**)

    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.

    My younger sister thinks I'm weird

    because when I have a headache I tell everyone to be quiet and raise the volume to the music. Music actually makes my headaches go away.

    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...

    You know when you stop at a red light

    and in your peripheral vision you see quite some motion in the vehicle next to you and hear quite the expressive music, so you casually glance over, to see a young lady being completely dramatic? Sometimes I wish I was the one glancing over at the weirdo, but this time, I was...

    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.

    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...

    When I say I like it loud,

    I mean it! If I can hear myself singing, it's not loud enough. I've heard me sing, it needs to be covered up.......... I hate what I call "Dumb Thumpers", you know...no real music, just a bass sound that thumps the ground and rattles their vehicle... I'm convinced it has the...

    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.

    Someone once asked me.

    ..... Is your accelerator somehow connected to the volume on the stereo???? Truth is i often have moments when the only way to release tension is to crank it up & just drive!! I love it!! :-)

    I crank it up to Pearl Jam,

    RHCP, Smashing Pumpkins, Weezer, Green Day, etc.. Especially when Nirvana comes on. I have no idea what Kurt was singing about, but I feel like it is pure, so I sing/scream to it. I listened to a lot of alternative rock when my mom drove me to grade school, so I get powerful...

    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...

    Honestly, sometimes I want other people to hear

    my music. I love my music and I want you to know this awesome stuff I'm listening to. If I'm driving on city streets, I might act on any possible excuse to keep my windows down. But I discovered recently that I keep the bass so high that it travels pretty far even with the...

    I commute - anywhere from 1 to 2 hours - each

    way, so it's a necessity for me. It helps me stay awake. I love listening to music.

    I love to sing and dance

    while driving. lol. People driving by me either usually give me weird looks because I am completely of pitch probably or laugh and join in. I find it so much fun to just drive around windows down- it relaxes me. Is that weird? OHH Well if it does!
