Default Soundproofing a Room

So I live in an attached semi. Its a pretty nice house, fairly big and comfortable. However the one thing Ive been griping especially lately is my room is attached to the side of my neighbor's house. It never use to be a problem as no one lived there for quite some time. However recently a family moved in. This family has a baby. Next they decide to put this baby in the room that is beside my room. So as a result I cannot listen to my music very loudly. It sucks but at the same time I understand where they are coming from. Now usually what I do is just play my music at a reasonable level and than slowly turn it up lol. I usually get a good 20-30min of music before they come over and ask me to turn it down. I know I could be a bitch and state that the city bylaw doesn't require me to turn it down until 11pm but they are my neighbors and so I don't want to make living beside them uncomfortable or a war type of deal.

So I have decide a reasonable thing to do is to attempt to sound proof the side of the wall that is attached to their house. Does anyone know how to go about doing this? The trick is I don't want to spend more than say 100$..

A cheaper version of what Meghan suggested is this:

The egg carton surface actually works to suppress sound waves too.

Shit, it's more expensive than I thought.

You would spend at least $300 doing it that way including freight. You need 88 sq ft and those are $79 for 24 Sq Ft

You could always go to Home Depot and get some 4x8 foam insulation sheets. But they're likely to be expensive too.

Well, what the hell do I know? I just googled "Soundproofing a room" and that was the first site that wasn't an ad.

Headphones are quite cheap these days.

It would make sense that the neighbors would be willing to chip in for the soundproofing. Otherwise, yeah. Get a second pair of headphones.

I should ask them to cheap in. Considering I am doing it for them. The law is on my side on this one so technically I can tell them to shut the fuck up and get off my porch.

sounds like a good way to get your house burned down

p.s. i'm just guessing on this one because quite honestly these types of ghetto problems are solved by getting an education then getting a job, to buy a house far away from ghettos.

what the fuck? just play music softly or get some headphones. I dont understand why people have to play music loud enough for the neighbour to hear, contain your shit inside your own home. you are being a fucking nuisance to your neighbour. You do realize your neighbour can do the same shit to you if they are pissed off.

Cork works. If you cover the entire wall in cork, you can use it as a giant message board or something and just stick a bunch of posters//pictures on it because Cork is well, ugly. But yah, cork works.

Its actually really not that loud. If you enjoy music and where in my room with me when I was listening to it, I doubt you would say "wow this is unnecessarily loud". I think its more the bass carries through the wall.
