....without having to go to application manager and force stopping it? It really annoys me just sitting there in the notifications bar, laughing at me.

Yeah, should have bought an iPhone.

Find a brick or large heavy object. Slam it into the phone until it stops making a noise.
Problem solved.

Good to hear, I couldn't be arsed with it but got 30 of the 60 back, will still end up better off with a bit of luck.

Anyway, I found this:

Still looking and having a play on my partners S2 as I can't see it being much different.

Edit: Just realised, are you on about closing the app or just stopping music?

Just closing the app altogether. All you can do is pause it, whereby it just stays in the notification bar. You have to go into apps manager and force stop it to remove it.

Deek, when music player is open, press the left soft key, there is an "end" option, job done :)

Within the app's settings is there a 'display in notification bar' option checked?

If it's the same as S3, go to settings, accessory, earphones, untick audio applications :)

You just drag and drop they said...

You just change the default app they said...

Inb4 "S3 + £200 for iPhone 5" thread.

What you on about Apple boy? The app does exactly what I wanted, it was just my old brain couldn't find it.
