One of the main reasons I never listen to the radio (aside from the music consisting of dickheads singing about "going to the club" in every single fucking song) is the fact that they compress the music so much that it sounds awful unless you turn it up loud enough to even slightly distinguish the midrange from the top end. The bass is too bassy and powerful, and anything upward from there is just a horrible mash of noise. It's dreadful. It's even worse when you're in the car on a rough road, and you think that you'll just turn the radio on for a little bit of quiet background music. You keep the volume low, only to realize that above the sound of the tarmac you can only hear a horrible sound which closely resembles white-noise. At first, you think that your radio isn't tuned properly, but you turn up the volume and realize it's just the compressed garbage of another wigger faggot singing about "putting his hands up in the air" and "seeing girls".
