    I like to listen to my music pretty loud, but then again I do have a my Entire trunk covered with dynamat so most of the sound is contained within. And its really more about the energy of the music than feeling cool.

    Today, I was listening to Queen ("Don't Stop me now")and dancing on the way to the fabric store. I was at a stoplight and dancing like there's no tomorrow.
    (I have hand motions and everything. I'm so good.)

    People in the cars surrounding me started dancing too, but I think they were mocking instead of joining along.

    So, I switched it to "Take your mama" by the scissor sisters and ignored them. I started to dance bigger and more expressively than with the Queen.
    (it was a long stoplight.)

    HECK YEA, I'M COOL.

    It wasn't so loud other cars could hear it though. That's a little dangerous for my taste. Can't hear honking or sirens or "OMG STOP RUNNING ME OVER".

    The volume knob in my car is really finicky. If I move it, the sound will cut out of one or more speakers. Unfortunately the only volume it works on is rather loud, but I don't mind. So the answer to the question is, loud when I'm listening to the radio and somewhere between moderate and loud when I'm using the iPod. I do enjoy really blasting classical music, though. You get some good looks from other people.

    I always listen to it all the way up. I spent about $1,000 upgrading the sound system in my car so I have to get my money's worth. :)

    And for those that hate subwoofers in cars, I just put in one 10" sub to fill in the low end... I think the people who buy 2 12" subs just to show off are a little annoying too.

    By the way, 2nyRiggz, I think the Scott Stapp CD is awesome too :)

    I crank the music pretty high. I spend a lot of time in the car (50% of my job) so I need some good tunes to keep me awake. I don't drive a pimped out car though, and I usually have the windows up (and the air conditioning cranked). :)

    Mmmm... I have a senior recital playlist and one of the pieces on it just rocks SO HARD.
    BRAHMS I blast. MENDELSSOHN also gets blasted. Passacaglia (Handel-Halvorsen), Saint-saens 3rd...
    Mmm...

    Also, if you haven't heard the Heiftz arrangement of the March from the Love for three oranges by Prokofiev, ZOMG. Drive near me some time, and you'll hear it out my windows. It's such a good piece. (The octaves are totally kicking my butt, though.)

    Once, my friend and I drove to the store playing the Russian Easter Overture on FULL BLAST. It was good. We both kind of stumbled out of the car, half-deaf after it, haha.

    Oh, classical music, I love you!

    They've got nothing on Khachaturian's Sabre Dance. Of course, this can only be played whilst wearing a leather driving cap and possibly driving goggles. :D

    I may or may not have a CD devoted to this pastime in my car...

    Good stuff. I have rabbit ears, so I can hear just about everything as loud and mentally orchestrated. I even leave the beginning of the third movement of Beethoven's 5th at level 2, but can't resist to crank it up when the full orchestra shows up.

    I've been doing that too much lately. Nothing like Metallica from the 80's to blow off steam. Yeah, I'm old.

    My 18 year old son still thinks they're awesome, but he's a music major.

    Yes, I do have the volume fairly high when I am in my auto. And at times I sing along.

    You were going to the fabric store; hence, no matter what you were listening to, it wasn't cool. :p

    *screams "I luv you, Katie!" but disappointed that she can't hear him*

    *Greenspan calls Katie's mobile and offers her a job working for him directly, but she can't hear her phone ring*


    Wow, too bad she couldn't hear. She threw so much away. ;)

    Most people hate riding along with me because it's always Rush, and I'm always playing the air bass pretending I'm Geddy Lee. :eek: :eek: :D
