    "Why do entertainers play their music at such high volume in concerts? I’ve been blown out of buildings by the noise.
    —Charles Umpstead, Watsontown, Pa.

    They’re trying to generate excitement, and a high level of decibels accomplishes that goal. Subjected to such intense sound, listeners’ bodies produce adrenaline, noradrenaline and more. These substances make the heart pound and give an impression of increased muscle strength. Not surprisingly, some people become psychologically addicted to this hormone rush, which is implicated in thrill-seeking behavior. What a way to get—and keep—fans."


    Which is also probably why musicians trash their rooms. :)
