When someone else in the residence is making annoying noise but you can't, or would rather not, confront them because they wouldn't listen, or would retaliate by criticizing you. So, you make noise (such as playing music) so you don't have to listen to them.
My Sister was belly dancing upstairs, so I plugged my headphones and played some music on the computer for drown sound.
