Give me your loud, righteous, angry and pissed off music
August 14, 2018 12:59 AM   Subscribe

All the owners of apartments in the block I live in are about to be up for a lot of money due to the fault of others. Music is my stress relief but there are only so many times I can listen to Killing In the Name or the song I won't name from Aenima. I have a broad library of music, apparently it's a little shallow in this area. Hook me up, tinnitus be damned. I listen to any and every genre and have a good sound system that'll do justice to anything at 100db.

If you're up for classical, try the "Dies Irae" from Verdi's Requiem.

Linkin Park - One Step Closer
Run The Jewels - Close Your Eyes And Count To F**k

In case Killing In The Name is the only RATM song you know, Bullet In Your Head is a good one too.

It's a slow burn and I fear this will get me laughed out of the thread, but - blasting Phil Collins' I Don't Care Anymore and air-drumming along kept me from committing a couple teenage rage-fueled crime sprees in high school.

Here's a few from the Celtic influenced side of things:

I'm Movin' On by Ashley MacIsaac

Brenda Stubbert also by Ashley MacIsaac (instrumental, but good and loud)

James Connolly
by Black 47 (If you decided to download this, you want the version on Live in New York City, which is all over a good album for blasting loud Irish punk.)

Circling back to the "Killing in the Name Of" option, I highly recommend Brass Against The Machine
Covers of Rage Against the Machine and other excellent loud angry rock, as done by a brass band, with absolutely stunning vocals by Sophia Urista. Great stuff. Angry and beautiful.

My two favorite Angry Songs are:

Splashdown - Ironspy. This one is a little slower than the example songs you posted, but is still very angry. There are two versions; I personally prefer the one on Blueshift, but that might just be because I heard that one first.

Coheed and Cambria - Welcome Home. Progressive rock; very angry!

hmmm... maybe some appropriate to your situation:

Frank Black - Suffering

If you haven't got enough Rage, there's also a Tributo a Rage Against The Machine en Español.

And even though it's about politics, the Ramones' Bonzo Goes To Bitburg seems to mirror my WTF emotions pretty well.

I am very fond of the Yeah Yeah Yeah's Fever to Tell album for this kind of thing. They have lots of other good songs on other albums, but that entire album is consistently loud, righteous, angry, sad, triumphant and lots of other awesomely rockingly screechy things.

"Alright Alright" by Sahara Hotnights

"Three Minute Warning by Warlock

"Thunder and Lightning" by Thin Lizzy

"Comin' Atcha Live" by Tesla

"Out ta Get Me" by Guns n Roses

"Sanctuary" by Iron Maiden

"Man Like That" by Gin Wigmore

"Who Invited You" by the Donnas

"Who Do You Think We Are?" by Alice Cooper

"Simple Disobedience" by Alice Cooper

"Got the Time" by Joe Jackson (feels like an angry song to me....)

In my many angry mixtapes of my youth, it seemed important to have some slower and subtler angry songs mixed in, to keep from burning out my adrenaline. So, in case these would work as intermediates:

"Pharaoh" by Richard Thompson, covered by The House Band
(I've long wished someone would perform it, flowing into "Creeping Death" by Metallica.)

"Viva la Quince Brigada" - Pete Seeger

"Private Property" by Judas Priest

"Hammer to Fall" by Queen

"Not Dead Yet" performed by Styx

"Digging in the Dirt" by Peter Gabriel

"It All Makes Sense at the End" by Molly Lewis

For me, nothing scratches this itch like hard drum & bass – especially the subgenres known as techstep and (especially) neurofunk.

Head to YouTube and find anything by Spor, Limewax, Evol Intent, Noisia, Black Sun Empire, Billain, The Upbeats, Kitech, Skynet, Gridlok, Current Value, Maztek, Receptor, Phace, or Misanthrop. Then just follow down the YouTube rabbit hole.

I don't have time at the moment, but here are a few tracks to start with:

Dylan & Kitech – "Hatred Written in Fire"
Billain – "Colossus"
Kitech – "Brink of Evolution"
