Is it a radio? Yes! Is it "bad"? Yes! When you taunt while it's equipped, will it play music to terrorize your neighbors and scare suckas? Yes!
The TF2 Team

The Boston Boom-Bringer is a community-created cosmetic item for the Scout. It is a gray, orange, and team-colored boombox that is strapped on top of the Scout's default messenger bag. A hidden attribute makes this item play music during any taunt the player performs, though this effect was noted on the official TF2 website.

There are four unique audio clips, each with a chance to play upon activation of a taunt (1, 2, 3 and 4).

The Boston Boom-Bringer was contributed to the Steam Workshop under the name "The B.E.A.T.".
