At first I thought it was a smart idea. Now I know it's just the opposite.
Finally was able to think of a decent puzzle. Haven't been able to think of any for ages! I'd also love some questions on my LatVenture!

Is music actually relevant?

Were you playing music? Performing music yourself?
Playing pre-recorded music?

Were you playing music at one particular occasion? If so, was it a special occasion? A wedding? A party? A funeral? A picnic?

Time of day relevant? Is the type of music you were playing relevant?

Is music actually relevant? Only because my brother was playing music when I thought of how to phrase this puzzle. So no.

Were you playing music? Performing music yourself?
Playing pre-recorded music? No to all.

Were you playing music at one particular occasion? No. If so, was it a special occasion? A wedding? A party? A funeral? A picnic?

Time of day relevant? Not really. Is the type of music you were playing relevant? FA, I wasn't playing music (see above)

Did you have this idea? someone else? was the idea ever put into practice? did it work out? backfire?
Did the idea relate to: job/business? study? leisure activities? sports? family? (romantic) relationships? charity?

Did you have this idea? someone else? This, could be a bit misleading. was the idea ever put into practice? Yes, 'idea' may not have been the best word for it, perhaps 'feature' would be better. did it work out? Yesish. backfire? It didn't backfire, in fact, the idea is still in use today.
Did the idea relate to: job/business? study? leisure activities? sports? family? (romantic) relationships? charity? None of these, really.

Is it relevant how this person set it off? Or maybe it wasnt even a person, but, let's say, a cat?

At first I thought it was a smart idea. Now I know it's just the opposite.
When I first knew of car alarms, I thought, 'oh, that's a smart idea, making cars have alarms in cause someone tries to steal them.' However, car alarms are very easy to set off accidentally. Therefore, when one hears a car alarm, they are less likely to think, 'oh no! A car is being stolen! We must help!' and more likely to think, 'whose car is that? That's really annoying, they need to stop that alarm now.' Therefore, car alarms don't really help serve their intended purpose, do they?
Congrats to Balin for the solve, thanks to Shez, Kaylee, Ciaobella, Ostap, and Beachbum for their questions, and many thanks to Doriana for her dedicated work on this puzzle.
As for the title, well, I thought up this puzzle a while back, totally forgot about it before I had a chance to get access to a computer, and was reminded of it for some reason when sitting in the car and was able to hear my brother's music playing. Don't know why that reminded me of it.
