Next song: Crook attack

Ahh, a peaceful Muni ride, listening to tunes on your iPod.

Not quite.

A 19-year-old woman was rudely ripped from her listening pleasure Monday after a 20-year-old brute yanked the iPod from her hands, police said.

The woman was sitting on a Muni bus at Geneva and San Jose avenues when the hoodlum snatched the popular device, cops said.

She put up a fight trying to hold onto her property, but the merciless goon fled the bus on foot, yanking her out of her seat during the mad dash, police said.

The victim was not seriously injured, cops said.
