Super Sonic Haters

FontFilter: A font which reflects deep respect for low frequency vibrations.

I like my music so loud I can feel it. My sub-woofer cost a week's pay. And nothing gets under my skin quite like someone telling me to turn it down.

To publicly declare my defiance of the regulation of my sonic rights, I wish to inscribe the words "The Haters Are Restless" on the volume knob of my stereo receiver.

It will be easy to make a stencil with GIMP. The only question is: what font should I use?

Go to They have a huge selection of free fonts with plenty that would be good for your use.

Seconding dafont. Plus, you can try out the fonts with your phrase. You might want comic fonts (note: so much more than Comic Sans) or Sci-Fi (sorry, I saw the font and couldn't resist =)

I think a block typeface might suit your needs— here's a list from Typophile.

It has to be Magnesium Grime (in my opinion).

Tungsten by Hoefler & Frere-Jones. It's bold, loud and timeless. Good for your knob. :)
