Nine Great Songs For Listening to When You’re Angry

BY Sehba Mohammad

Anger is a completely normal emotional response to feeling threatened and most people feel it once in a while. Listening to music, especially punk rock, is a great outlet for the emotion. The harder, faster, unpolished version of rock, punk rock has stripped down instrumentals, angry anti-establishment lyrics, and enough intensity and grit to match your worst day. The next time someone pushes your buttons don't lash out or resort to passive aggressive tactics,… READ MORE
