Christopher is completely correct. These mega-decibel sound systems have the same effect upon the auditory hair cells as Mount St. Helens had upon the surrounding trees. The resultant waveforms reflecting back and forth within the cranial cavity are probably slowly reducing the neurons and glial cells to primordial ooze, which probably in part explains the individual's self destructive behavior.

Legislation is only as good as enforcement. Many urban areas already have noise ordinances. Perhaps if we closed all the donut shops, as someone suggested, we might see them enforced.
