Default Is high frequency rising-up OK?

I am studying an audio preamp. The following diagram is the simulation of ac frequency response when the circuit gain is set to be very high. I am afraid the condition will result any kind of disaster, such as break speakers. Any suggestion will be appreciated.

A circuit with that big a peak might become an oscillator under
some conditions. Even if it doesn't, usually a peak like that
has an audible signature.

Hi Peter,
That will most likely break into oscillation on some portion of the signal. It may be much worse in real life also.

I think Nelson was making an understatement when he said ....
