Blatant connotes coarse or vulgar noisiness: "students demanding unlimited freedom in a noisy and blatant protest against all university authority" (Thomas Anthony Harris).
Boisterous implies unrestrained noise, tumult, and often rowdiness: boisterous youths. Strident stresses offensive harshness, shrillness, or discordance: a legislator with a strident voice. Something clamorous is both vociferous and sustained: a clamorous uproar.
