1. Other: Not what I want to hear at 140db at 2am when I'm trying to sleep.
The reason rap has such a bad rep IMHO is that 9 times out of 10 (or possibly even a higher percentage) if some douchebag is breaking bottles, setting off fireworks, screaming at the top of their lungs at their girlfriend/boyfriend, blasting music far too loud, generating huge amounts of stinky trash that sit on the sidewalk or other horrible things, usually at 2 am, the odds are their craptastic activities are accompanied by blasting rap music, and usually rap music of the lowest quality.
