There's often safety in numbers....
If you have emotions running high, stay indoors DO NOT express this frustration in public. Do not make yourself look foolish as it will remove the effectiveness of your getting resolve around this annoyance.
One thing to consider is if these fools are high on drugs during the period you hear this loud music and confront them it could get worst and you may become emotionally ensnared in a huge verbal conflict.
If I may suggest a calm public approach, written documentation only expressing your wish to quite enjoyment of the space you are renting as your sanctuary sand home. While you are not a Buddhist monk there is a measure of mental well being which is being disturbed. Go to the top over the mangers head if nothing gets resolved with management. Everything in writing, keeping copies. If all else fails which if you plan this wisely it shouldn't, but after you try being reasonable and unemotional publicly and if you stake a look at your behavior to see if it is over the top... The only two options after trying your best to get resolve is to move and hope you don't go through that again and or purchase a home. Oh the third is to become a Buddhist Monk in a foreign country.
There are some practical answers here. Though, I remember stereo wars from college. It only leads to escalation. What next, recordings from the airport runway?
I prefer diplomacy. And, I keep my expectations reasonable. People party out here in suburban Longmont, CO. There is noise. But a lot of the people who live here are parents who prefer the quiet. Sometimes the problem solves itself. Other times, you just end up complaining to management.
It could be an age thing. But, I've had friends hire bands and turn up the music until your ears bleed. Very rude.
If the noise is persistent, then you should approach the landlord/manager. The landlord or manager may have some good news, as in, the noise makers are being evicted or are moving on their own. In other words, get a full situational analysis before acting.
When you have complaints like these, you should write a letter. Though, property management companies will respond, especially if more than one tenant is complaining by email. Take heart. Yes, as a last resort, you can move.
Sorry, but we live in a time wherein nobody has any respect for anything or anybody. When you get the chance, never rent or buy a home with neighbors that can make you miserable, and any attention paid, is nonetheless attention! Best of luck to you.

(I assume when you say apartment, that means you are renting, people from back east say apartment even though they own it, where in the west we call them condos).
Everyone on here is right! Let me summarize:
1. File a complaint with the property manager or the owner.
2. Actually go to the neighbors and tell them to tone it down.
4. Contact an agent to buy a home.
Doing steps 1 and 2 will result in a couple of things:
1. You make instant enemies of the neighbors (making your life hard).
2. The neighbors actually do tone down their noisiness (not likely).
#3 above is moving, move to another apartment or save up money and buy a home (condo or house).
#4. Buying a home, I recommend a good agent, go to http://www.399home.com and you can see a great agent and look for homes to buy!
Thanks and good luck.
You have the right to quiet enjoyment where you live and pay rent. Do a Google search and educate yourself on all the particulars then have a very nice respectful conversation with the landlord about solving the issue. If it is a company and you do not get satisfaction get the Corporation or LLC's name that owns the property and Google their Corporate Governance. Got to the Top. When you find the names of the CEO or President look in Linked-in for their email address or phone number and contact them and get resolution.
