i was actually talking to my mom about this a while ago (shes an interior designer)... her favorite trick is lead foil. Yeah, its heavy metal, it kills ya if your eat it, tastes sweet like sugar (yeah i've licked it before) , but it apparently murders soundwaves. Other good things for reducing the noise is hanging thick blankets about an inch or so away from the wall to keep them from vibrating into the wall, and egg-carton foam. The cones on the foam break up sound waves all badass like.

Oh, and lead is only dangerous if its pure, lead oxide is harmless. How do you make lead oxide you ask? let it sit in a room for a week
I'm sure the foil will already be treated to be oxidized though.

I was very bemused as a youngster watching the Golden Girls when Blanche said she was going to "spank her fanny" I had visions of a geriatric vertical bacon sandwich red and bruised from being disciplined!!!
