I'm sure other hikers in the area would just love to hear your music blaring through the silence of nature. Nobody will think you're being trashy and inconsiderate.

I’ve heard from Park Rangers while hiking that music or other deterrents like bear bells are heavily discouraged because it’s more likely that the bear will be curious of the noise and seek it out rather than avoid it.

That's strange cause I've heard it recommended when with groups to talk loud that way you don't spook a bear and one into one randomly.

If you could convince the bear a large number of large animals is stampeding or something, maybe, but I think the bear'd be more likely to attack the source of the nuisance.
