    Interesting article about what we all know. It is truly unfortunate that this has happened. Musical artists are to blame for the most part, wanting their music to be louder.

    Not sure all the artists, maybe its based on what these young people are listening to, I say blame it on the rap as that seems to be all that is new these days.
