It seems as though most of the time people ask questions on AskReddit, they are genuinely interested and curious about the responses. In some instances, people ask sort of passive-aggressive questions, but these hardly ever get upvoted much, or when they do it isn’t a whopping 82K upvotes. Like this question from u/ArtAnvonavi, who asked: “People who force others into listening to the music by driving a car with windows wide opened and the volume 100% on – why do you do that?”
Some people did answer honestly, explaining that they had broken ACs, or that it feels good to blast your tunes with the wind in your hair. Others answered honestly but kind of aggressively (warranted) to the tune of: “I’ll do whatever the hell I want.”
If you’ve ever wondered why people drive with their windows down while blasting their music with the volume on ALL THE WAY, wonder no more:
My dad does this at 6 A.M. in residential areas with me in the car while dropping me off at my mom’s house in said area.
While this can be annoying, I am much more annoyed by people with Bluetooth speakers on their body blasting music in the break room, on the hiking trails, etc.—u/bootrot
Not as extreme but sometimes the weather is nice outside and you want to feel real wind on your face. That also means said wind is going to be very loud while driving so your music needs to be louder. When the car stops at an intersection it sounds like I am a douche bag but I was really doing my own thing.—u/totoropoko
It’s how I attract others of my kind, like a mating call—u/UtterShenanigans
I like my music loud but my AC is broken—u/MrCromin
For some people that’s their only opportunity to get their Ya Ya’s out. I’m nearly 60 and I don’t have a problem with this. If I catch the eye of somebody doing this I’ll bob my head like ‘this is my jam’. People like that, and they smile. If I hate the music, so what? They’ll be gone in like 10 seconds.—u/pete1729
I feel like this comment is directed at the window rattling sub woofer people. Those people are assholes.
For me, I like the music just like enough that I can sing it and not drown out the music with my voice. Also, wind feels good.—u/taterzlol
Because everyone should hear my Norwegian death metal at 8 am. It gets them hype for the day.—u/spooktober36s
If my car is moving you’ll only hear it for a couple of seconds, if I’m at a stop light I lower it down to about 20% and raise it again when the lights go green. So sorry I’m trying to be happy for a little bit.—u/Human010
Love the music
Love the wind
My car smells weird—u/-Master-Builder-
