The reason that people with boom cars (vehicles with loud stereos, particularly loud woofers) are so evil is that they steal your brain.

You could be lying in bed, thinking about Brahms or about love or about why your goldfish seems a little depressed lately -- and along comes the car that steals your thoughts away. Out go the melodies, out goes the love, out goes Swimmy. It's time for your to be the bastard's audience, your mind belongs to the bastard. Presuming that you have a mind, of course.


Remember, this is Par-Tay music. The bass lines are designed to engage and energize. Hooks, they're called. It's not accidental that it steals your attention. That is its intention.
