    Probably nothing to do with the music.

    Hot starting problems are common on the BKD engine and at that age the most likely cause is a failing starter motor.

    Could be Sub related actually. What sub /amp are you running OP? If the amp and sub are drawing a lot of current it could be draining the battery, making it harder to start if you turn it off and re-start just after blasting your tunes. However this is only if your running a serious set up like 2500 Watt RMS atleast. Do the lights flicker with the basslines?
