When I work construction I wear ear plugs, but for concerts/guitar, I just suck it up. I'm sure I wil pay for that eventually though.

my ears used to ring a bit if I went hard on the cymbals for ages, but now I hit lighter (well sometimes....) and I don't get ringing when I do, as for double kicking, I don't really notice that it has much affect, besides I have noticed it is possible to go quite fast but not so loud with longboards, I think it might the greater sensitivity or something, but lets face it when should double kicking be quiet????

After my first metal concert, my ears rang and buzzed on the word "s"(haha) for about 2-3 days. Minimal damage. It helps to have a larger head.
Man, I get real sweaty after I wack my dong. Yeah, cause I headbang while I do, and I can't really "Jump" (haha ) like VanHalen in a dorm room, so I just walk back and forth....haha a couple days ago I was jumping up and down on my bed, with my pants down and my roommate came in when I wasn't looking, hahaha.

This is my band's page

every time your ears ring, it signals permenant damage.
think about that.
i wear plugs when i jam loud.
Imagine there's no countries,
It isnt hard to do,
Nothing to kill or die for,
No religion too,
Imagine all the people
living life in peace...

No wonder why you have the name you do.. haha. Just messing but anyways. I don't wear ear plugs. I have an Aviom set up so I have those big head phones and have that clear wall in front of my set and with the head phones on it blocks out everything on the outside so it's like ear plugs. Without all that though I still don't wear nothing, it doesn't bother me since I am already bad at hearing. My dad can barely hear anymore and has a constant ringing in his ears but that was from guns and deep sea diving and some other things. If you don't have bad hearing already or even if you do then I recommend you get some right away. I need to find some that won't effect the music but will help your hearing like soulinsane was talking about.
walk through nature's dwelling
hide from obscure trees listening
winter brings gloom, brings remnants of our shadows
twilight casts spells on those who espouse their fate

ice pricks necks like knives, leaving shards of cadaverous skin
tears spout from eyes, shunned from mankind's den

Ive been playing for 5 years and ive used ear plugs only a couple times and my hearing is fine. But I probably should start wearing them I dont want to go def when im like 30. That would suck.
