Top 5 Angry Songs

By thePatrick

I just thought that I would start posting some top 5 lists. I don't know why. I don't know if it matters, either. But for this first one, just realize that I am at work, and have had to deal with an enormous amount (even larger than usual) of stupidity today. So, I give to you, my top 5 angry songs. They are usually good songs to blast right after you got a speeding ticket, or something else of that nature. Really riles up the senses. So without further ado:

5) My Own Summer (Shove It) by Deftones - This song has everything an angry song needs: a screaming chorus, repetitive guitar riffs, and instruments tuned to drop whatever. Amazing. The kind of thing you want to listen to as you watch people walk up and down the left side of a stairway or sidewalk.

4) I Hate Everyone by Get Set Go - For those who don't know, Get Set Go combine light hearted melodies with the most spiteful lyrics known to man. Plus, Mike TV is the kind of guy who actually writes down, and then sings, the crap that most of us think and wouldn't dream of uttering. He should write a song about people who don't know the difference between "you're" and "your".

3) Cecilia and the Silhouette Saloon by The Blood Brothers - First off, I deep heart luff The Blood Brothers. So sad they broke up last year. However, if yelps are any indication, then this song is meant to be listened to loudly at red lights after having just been cut off by the last car to make it through the green.

2) Ladies and Gentlemen: My Brother, The Failure by Thursday - After the one and a half second drum intro, when the guitars jump in with the main riff, the energy is so tense that you can just punch slow moving people in the back of the head, and not even have to worry about the consequences.

1) Cold Cash and Colder Hearts by Thrice - Jump to 1:59 in the song, and then you will know what I mean. This song is held together by Riley Breckenridge on drums. He's amazing, and his energy is what drives this song. Play this while you are stuck behind the car that is driving 5 mph below the speed limit with its turn signal on.

Now Rawk it! And don't let the stupidity of the world get you down.


Another angry song that really gets me going after someone is stupid is Right Now by Korn. I know, Jen and Korn, weird, but seriously. You may want to check out the edited version if you have grown toward non-f worded songs...just a warning.


I'm glad to see 'I Hate Everyone' made your list. Although, 'Bad Day' is even angrier...BUT he hasn't sent you your CD for your donation yet, so I'll let that one slide...

...seriously though, it makes 'I Hate Everyone' look like 'Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star'. Yikes.

Love the list, some great lesser known songs on here.

Great list of angry songs, love them!
