I don't care what others do at their campsite as long as it does not impact me and I try to do the same. I do enjoy some Taichovsky, Allman Brothers, Marshall Tucker and Pink Floyd from time to time but at a reasonable level.
dont foget LYNYRD SKYNYRD,and BOSTON
And the Simon Fraser University Pipe Band and the Metropolitan Toronto Police Pipe Band. I just don't think this music could be too loud!
I play loud music of all varieties when group camping in a sectioned-off part of the campground. For individual camping trips, the music as low as it can be - played with a simple single desktop speaker.
I try to NOT allow the actions of other people to annoy me. Such annoyances ruin MY enjoyment.
So, I ignore them, their music, their campfire, etc. I allow them whatever they want that enhances their enjoyment.
Then, I can enjoy myself.

I don't think there is a clear yes or no answer here. Generally speaking, I think when one camps in a natural setting such as a state, national park, etc.,we expect no significant noises coming from other sites. Most campgrounds have "quiet hours" but it seems like there aren't many rangers around any more to enforce them. I do think a camper has a right to enjoy some music at his site providing it can't be heard much by the neighbors.
I play Sirrus Satelite from the TV through my surround sound in my 5ver,at a low leval to my outside speakers,but always walk to the next campsite to make sure the neighbor cannot hear my Country/Oldies music,now if my neighbor plays his loud,or plays his dog and children too loud, I put my earphones in, plugged into my system and ignore everybody around me!

There are different types of people who camp. There are partiers who think of camping as a getting away from everyday life and letting it all hang out. There are others who go camping to be close to nature and enjoy the peace and quiet.
Too bad CGs aren't separated into types so everyone could enjoy camping in their own way without infringing upon others.
