Oddly enough I've tried that and it doesn't work. I've tried things like Rammstein and Nitzer Ebb and it just doesn't work. People seem to disregard it as noise.
I think it has something to do with the doppler effect. If you hear a guitar riff, even one you've never heard, then you can tell when it's phase shifting toward you. If you hear some kind of industrial metal noise then it just sounds like noise whether it's phase shifting or not. You can't tell.
Some Jack White tracks suffer from the same problem. People hear noise and disregard it, instead of music that makes them move out of the way.
Worst backfire ever: Michael Jackson's Greatest Hits. People everywhere of all ages love it so they turn around to see where it's coming from. Usually toward the music. And then they almost get run over.

Those families that walk abreast and fill up the entire width of the beach walk. And then they get flustered and irritated when you try to get around them. Come on, people, this is not a corn field in Oklahoma.
