Australian kids hate opera even more than they love Big Macs.

A McDonald’s near Sydney got fed up with the hooligans loitering in their parking lot, so they blasted opera and classical music to force the too-cool teens to take their antics elsewhere, the local Macarthur Chronicle reports.

“We’ve noticed a reduction in the number of young people hanging around,” store manager Matthew Watson said. “We play a range of classical and opera music and so far it seems to be working.”

Another Australian parking lot played Barry Manilow to send teens running for the hills.
