It may not sound like punishment at all until you hear what the music was. And then you might feel sympathetic for members of Revolving Reverence, who had to sit through an hour of it because they played their own songs too loudly!
The judge says he did it because he noticed that too many people were just paying the fine and not really learning anything from their offenses. So tell us what you think about his unique penalty - and whether that would make you turn the volume down...

P.S. I was also in a high school rock band - I used to murder the drums. And yes, we once got in trouble for playing too loudly, and we totally deserved it: We weren't as good as Revolving Reverence.
