    Anyone recommend any? hehe

    I'm pissed off at something totally insignificant, but pissed off nonetheless. I find it a good way to release stress without breaking something or torching some villages.

    And no, I don't mean screamfests where the entire song consists of screaming and monkeys in drums and guitars trying to imitate the voice (I mean, come on! Instruments are supposed to complement the vocals, NOT imitate it). I'm talking of cyberpunk (NO, it's not emo) to industrial stuff a la Celldweller, Nine Inch Nails, Marilyn Manson, Zeromancer, etc. Think Matrix OST. Basically heavy stuff WITH lyrics that actually MAKE SENSE.

    Korn used to be nice before they went too far into investing in that creepy voice. And then they just turned fake like LimpBizkit. LOL

    Some songs I like which I classify as Anger Music:

    Celldweller - Frozen
    Nine Inch Nails -The Hand That Feeds
    Celldweller - Afraid This Time
    Foo Fighters - The Pretenders

    Anybody know of any bands/songs that sound similar to these?

    Meh. Only liked some of the songs of System of A Down (Aerial was awesome), their eastern european/heavy metal mix is kinda repetitive. icon_confused.gif

    Deftones! *slaps head* I forgot about them. Thanks. icon_smile.gif

    And Staind is too um... emo! LOL But good nonetheless. icon_wink.gif

    When I want to hear some anger music I listen to Linkin Park (the rock cds not their remixes), Breaking Benjamin, or 30 Seconds to Mars.

    If you want some good music that you don't need to actually understand but love that type of vocals and music I'd suggest Japanese Rock (J-Rock). You can find their music vids on youtube. Search for Gackt, Malice Mizer, or Dir En Grey. They're a mix of 80s and today's rock with a lot of cross dressing and artistic music videos! 150px-MM-Mana-FlowerFairy.jpeg

    The Melvins are pretty good.

    Black Flag and Bad Brains, Circle Jerks, Scream, and some of Flippers stuff (not so much the music on the latter, just angry lyrics).

    The Distillers and Hole are pretty good when you're pissed too. icon_smile.gif

    "Head Like A Hole" by Nine Inch Nails is a great anger song. So is "God Save The Queen" by The Sex Pistols. "Holiday" by Green Day is a good recent one (2005).

    Mellow angry or bitter songs are harder to come by but I love "I've Had It" by Aimee Mann (highly underrated talent), and "If You Could Read My Mind" by Gordon Lightfoot is one of my favourtie love songs that has an angry undertone.

    Dir-en-Grey is always a good choice... they've gotten a lot more hardcore as the years have passed.

    I recommend "The Outcast" by Dropkick Murphys, although it might be better for a later phase in your anger...the part where you begin to realize your own vulnerability. Don't get me wrong though...it's a f*cking aggressive song.

    System of a Down is good 'n' angry too. Henry Rollins seems to be a standard. For somewhat emotional, more mature punk, go with Social Distortion or Bad Religion.

    Thanks guys. Though the anger has passed already. LOL (It was something really trivial)

    I'm gonna check out everything. Though I already know and like a lot of the bands listed.

    And RATM is more anarchistic. LOL

    LyteFyre, yep. Have heard several good J-Rock bands before. L'Arc~En~Ciel is good and I like them simply because they take the time to sing in English. Heh

    Thanks for the recommendations folks! icon_wink.gif

    Now I'm off to blow the roof off our house. ROFL icon_twisted.gif

    Well, I'll represent the less heavy side of all this. Although, I lean more toward that which is angst-ridden and melancholy rather than in-your-face angry, but angry nonetheless. Maybe I'll call it 'silent anger'. But I digress:

    Radiohead - OK Computer, The Bends are more rock inclined, but Kid A has some fantastic lyrics and is more on the electronic side (Idioteque is one of their best songs, hint hint). Hail To The Thief is also excellent (2+2=5, Orwell references! icon_cool.gif) .

    Arcade Fire - Neon Bible is an amazing record, great to listen to in the dark. It is basically about the deterioration of society (and, to some extent, the hand religion has in it). '(Antichrist Television Blues)' is absolutely amazing (said to be about stage-parents) and also 'Black Mirror', if you can get your hands on those tracks.

    I guess Radiohead makes up the bulk of my angry listening. Oh well icon_biggrin.gif

    Arcade fire - hey, glad to hear someone else on this site appreciates them....but I don't think they are angry enough.

    Above guys have mentioned other's i like but how about...

    Queens of the Stoneage
    -some Arctic Monkeys like Scummy!
    -some reggaeton like Don Omar or Daddy Yankee songs

    YEah, these guys are pretty disgruntled... hope this helps.

    Hell yea! I got to see them live in concert in Orlando last year! I was just pissed that they didn't dress up like they used to. Their costumes were always awesome! ...they looked weird as guys LOL

    Linkin Park. Metallica. And, if it's related to a relationship issue (or lack thereof), I go with Dashboard Confessional.

    They looked weird as transvestites too... but they still rocked.
    "Clever Sleazoid" is a great song! Really shows the maturity of the band's sound... very different from their early stuff.

    Eh I thought they were artistic when they were transvestites...most of the time. And yea "Clever Sleazoid" is much better than "The Domestic Family F*cker"! Though the music from "Raison D'etre" is my favorite!

    How about some recent Gary Numan (like NIN) or even some old school Public Enemy!

    4barbela, 'silent anger' is EXACTLY what I'm looking for. LOL It's why NIN is always at the top of my list. Radiohead is too 'soft' sometimes though. More like electronica (don't get me wrong, I love my electronica too).

    Never heard of Arcade Fire. Will check it out.

    Also if I amy recommend some myself:

    Institute, Lacuna Coil, The Prodigy, and Mike Shinoda, MDFMK are also great.

    Also the new songs by Killing Joke. Their older songs suck though. LOL. but they're surprisingly getting well with the times.

    And how come nobody mentioned Rammstein?! LOL

    P.S. Thanks for reminding me of Staind again. Heh. I've forgotten how good they really were. I kinda drifted away from them when they started getting TOO popular (kinda like what happened to Linkin Park, who I really loved back in High School). Mudshovel was awesome! And I've forgotten Epiphany.

    P.S.S. Has anybody heard Exhibit 13 by the Blue Man Group? That's got to be one of the most moving songs I've heard lately. It was composed as a tribute to the 9/11 attacks. It captures the emotion perfectly, it's one of those few songs that doesn't need lyrics.
