My dad told me a story about his late father having a car (I THINK it was a Lincoln) that had a ridiculously sensitive alarm.  Case in point, going by it with the riding lawnmower would trigger it.  And it would lock up so you couldn't even get in the car to disable it or pop the hood and disconnect the car's battery or something LOL. I think they would either have to wait until the car's battery died or the alarm stopped after however long...
I wanna say my late grandfather finally took it to the dealership and complained, but I'd have to ask my dad...

That would suck. It would be terrible to drain and recharge the batteries, especially as they age. As for the alarm, that must be a manufacturing defect then.

I think it was just overly sensitive.

I wonder how they calibrate the sensitivity of the alarms.

That would be a problem, the noise of the alarm keeps the sensor tripped so the alarm will never stop on its own....

When you buy an aftermarket alarm system of your car, it does have an option to make it less or more sensitive.  The noise of the alarm doesn't mess with the sensors at all. Only low pitched rumbling like thunder and car engines it what will trip the sensor sound wise.

could a neighboring car blasting music with lots of bass trip the alarm?

 Yes. That happens a lot over here. Watch some YouTube videos on it.

I stayed in stl last year and there would be an occasional motorcycle rev its engine and an alarm or two would go off. Maybe people want their alarms more sensitive in more populated areas to deter theft.

I think it is more to do with what model of alarm dealers have in stock in the particular area. After all, they have their long term relations with their preferred suppliers and manufacturers, so it is just likely that most people from a certain area will have alarms from the same few manufacturers/models
