Serious question, although it could be kind of fun.  Here's my issue: I've got a substantial infestation of carpenter bees in my deck.  Although they rarely sting, they are sort of aggressive and it's a bit unnerving getting buzzed repeatedly by something that sounds like a mini B-17.  That said, I don't want to kill them since they are good pollinators, just get rid of them.  Apparently, almond oil drives them out and keeps them away for a bit, but you have to get rid of them first, because the females will sting (quite badly in fact, I got nailed by one as a kid).   Apparently, the best way to drive them out of the area is with sound waves.

Sooooo, here's were we get to an odd musical question.  I need a song to play for my little friends to send them down the road.  The more bass, the better.  Annnnnnd go.  (Bonus points for playable links)

Also, got to play it in the neighborhood, so nothing NSFW.

This. Except for maybe old school naughty by nature, cypress hill, and house of pain.

Lots of bass music out there. Play some of the trap music from YouTube if you don't have any.

 

Sounds like you need some sound transducers or bass shakers and just dump the bass frequency straight into the deck. Then it really doesn't matter what the music is, you will more feel it than hear it.

Can  you find/do you have speakers capable of playing notes that people can't hear, but bees can?

Kind of like a dog whistle, but for bees...

Something that I test bass response with is Mountains of Mars by Electric Wizard.

 

It's also an instrumental so you can't really offend anyone

In reply to Will :

Not sure.  The "how to" a read said they don't like the vibration, so I just assumed bass was the ticket.

This may sound weird but Prayers for Rain by the cure is super bassy if you have an adequate stereo. You'll feel it in your throat, in a good way. You also may need therapy with too much exposure.

This thread had to show up when I stopped driving my Volvo with the epically awesome woofers in the doors, didn't it.

Sounds like ( see what i did there) what you need is an audio surface driver. Do a google on "terfenol speaker" to see what that deal is. Put Dat Bass Right There...

The intro for Whole Lotta Love is a deep bass line.

The 'Mixed Up' album also thumps excessively.  Dr Magic Mike is neighborhood approved.  How could you go wrong with an albulm titled 'Bass, the Final Frontier'

Three 6 Mafia is what comes to mind.

If you've got the subs and wattage, Late Night Tip has a constant low bass line, and while the subject matter isn't PG, I don't think there's any overt vulgarity, at least not dropping F-bombs and the like.

Stay Fly would be another good one, but it's got some off color lyrics.

Beastie Boys - Paul Revere again not PG, there's some violence but otherwise clean lyrics.  You could probably find radio edit versions of most of their stuff. Sabotage, So Whatcha Want, the list goes on.

LL Cool J - Going Back to Cali

AWOL Nation -Sail

 

I'm getting nostalgic, I had a pair of Alpine Type R 12s and a giant 1000 Watt (RMS) Clarion amp, in the Jeep, I was the shiny happy person you could feel coming blocks away long before you see or hear me.  If I could have all the money I wasted on car audio in my youth back...
