Default Can loud music kill you?

Someone told me that if you play music in your car over a certain level of db that it can blow the windshield or even kill you. Is this true or an urban myth?

I think it was Myth Busters or something that mentioned this and it actually is possible but it would have to be so insanely loud that I don't think the speakers could handle the power lol

Thanks Alex. I was puzzled but not sure if there was some truth in it. If it had been my mother saying it I'd have laughed it off, lol. No need to worry when I turn up the volume then.

I doubt seriously the music could kill you.
I can see it being so loud that you don't hear what's going on around you, and possibly causing an accident. You could die that way, and the music would be an indirect cause, I guess.

Can music kill you know, make you deaf maybe. Low frequency sound waves however can resonate with the molecular structure of your cells killing you, but a speaker can't produce that.

This topic reminds me of another of another tale of this ilk. That one went along the lines of music being able to affect your heartbeat. The thinking was that a beat out of step with your pulse would cause your body to try to keep time!

I just remembered.. it was actually on that show called Manswers and it's funny because they acted it out and everything. It was so funny. You guys should watch it, you'll laugh like crazy!

I had a look for the video, be warned that the site is not work friendly in terms of wallpaper, content and sound! So they reckon that 200 db will kill you? Interesting stuff (and yes the end is funny).

It could, not necessarily loud music, if the frequency was right it could, there are sonic weapons out there that can make you sick. I think you would rupture your ear drums first.
