20 Songs To Listen To While Consumed With Rage

20 Songs To Listen To While Consumed With Rage

20 lovely angry tunes

Vein, Vein's bandcamp

With a lack of time, or indeed ideas for good, substantial articles, I've opted instead to pen a barebones listicle. Angry songs have been a large part of my life ever since 2010, and thus I have quite a bit of experience in the area. They're all really bastard heavy tunes from subgenres of metal or hardcore that pretty much exist here as a collective list because I'm a fan of all of the artists mentioned and needed to write something this week.

1: Vein: Ideation: Self Destruction

White hot noise, like a precise distillation of The Dillinger Escape Plan on Calculating Infinity and the first Burnt By The Sun EP

2: Glassjaw: Siberian Kiss

Daryl Palumbo's finest aggressive vocal performance bar none.

3: Love Lost But Not Forgotten: Perfectly Fucked

One of the most intense bands under the "emoviolence" banner, merging the sharp guitar lines of Raein with the grinding brutality of a Usurp Synapse.

4: Will Haven: I've Seen My Fate

Big riffs played really loudly with a scary man shouting over them.

5: Harms Way: Amongst The Rust

Groovy, bouncy, malevolent metallic hardcore from Chicago.

6: Street Sects: Featherweight Hate

Scary industrial noise.

7: Youth Code: For I Am Cursed

Scary industrial noise but with a more danceable edge.

8: American Me: Said Nothing Began Firing

An overlooked classic in the field of dirty hardcore, American Me had the street level punch of a band like Bury Your Dead but with the aggression and lairyness of a more metallic band.

9: Behemoth: Slaves Shall Serve

A death metal classic, from the Sumerian chanting at the start to the furious blastbeats and Nergal's feral growl.

10: Throats: Fuck Life

A UK grindcore/powerviolence classic right here folks.

11: Brotherhood Of The Lake: The World To Me

The most horrible guitar tone ever put onto record.

12: Mastodon: March Of The Fire Ants

Big riffs are the best, get high all the time.

13: Employed To Serve: Watching Films To Forget I Exist

Lovely angry mathy chaos.

14: Nails: You Will Never Be One Of Us

Grindy, nasty, sonic hostility.

15: Knocked Loose: Deadringer

Lovely heavy breakdowns.

16: Bury Your Dead: House Of Straw

Menacing, malicious, street level hardcore.

17: From A Second Story Window: I Tried Voodoo Once

Chaotic, nasty early deathcore.

18: Ion Dissonance: You People Are Messed Up

The finest synergy of mathcore chaos and deathcore heft ever achieved.

19: Fear Before The March Of Flames: The 20th Century Was Entirely Mine

More lovely mathy noises with a theatrical edge.

20: Eighteen Visions: Motionless And White

Chain Reaction metalcore from Orange County with big hair and an even bigger bite.

So there you have it, 20 angry tunes that aren't just AMVcore or whatever kind of spiteful tune has made it into the charts from across the spectrum of heavy music.

For a long time, Goya has been a staple in some Latino households. People carry around jars of Adobo when they eat at friend's houses and packets of Sazón Goya can be found in almost everyone's pantry. Many BuzzFeed lists, videos, and memes aimed at Latinos reference Goya somewhere.

But in a year that just keeps hitting us with bad news, Goya Foods CEO Robert Unanue said that Trump was an "incredible builder" and that the US was "blessed" to have him as president at a White House event on Thursday.

Everything You Need To Know About COVID-19 Outcomes, Because It Has To End Eventually

You've heard a lot of possible outcomes thrown around, let's break them down.

If you log into any social media app, you will be overwhelmed with self-appointed experts, preaching the correct way to end this coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic from the comfort of their La-Z-Boy chair. Aside from those dramatic children on TikTok, it's all anyone can talk about. There's an obvious reason for this — the pandemic has taken our world and flopped it on its head, bringing confusion, angst, and an obnoxious amount of sourdough bread into our lives.

All this to say, it's easy to get lost amidst the storm of arguments online. Instead, it's best to break down what's actually going on so we can have an educated perspective as we look to work together to move past our current predicament.

Raven Baxter Was Our Favorite Teen Fashion Icon And We're Still Recreating Her Best Looks, Here

We take a look at Disney's most fashion-forward show to recreate some iconic looks.

Disney Plus

I grew up in the early 2000s. And, like any child at the time, I was hooked on Disney Channel shows. My favorite was and is "That's So Raven."

Raven is a teenage psychic navigating life in hopes of not revealing her powers. Only her family and close friends know she has them. Her powers oftentimes get her in trouble, which is where the comedy comes in. But, they also teach her and her friends sentimental life lessons.

Sobriety is so underrated, even when it comes to healthcare. The instant gratification of a substance or drink isn't exactly as gratifying as some people may think. For those of you who've never been hungover, consider yourself lucky — a hangover is biologically horrifying. A hangover is not instant gratification, so who are we kidding when people say "it just feels good." Being healthy actually feels good and won't hurt you or your bank account in the morning. The best way to be healthy is to choose sobriety.

Ah, yes. The juice cleanse. Yet another popular diet trend that promises to magically solve all of your health, nutrition, and weight issues.

When you take a close look, juice cleanses aren't as magical as they are made out to be, and in fact, they might do more harm than good.

Unauthorized Plastic Surgery Is Totally Unethical, And Happening WAY More Often Than We Know ‬

Plastic surgery for cosmetic enhancements has you looking more botched than beautiful and it’s painful to see.

Coming from someone who could afford numerous cosmetic enhancing procedures I would never in a million years cut up my face or my body. I'm pretty emphatic and when I watch these brainwashed victims with bandages and chronic inflammation (swollen lips) I literally feel their pain.

I've never been big on casual wear or athleisure. Most people who know me have never seen me in sweats. But, I do have those two or three pairs of sweats I can't resist climbing into the second I get home, the newest addition of which is the extra cozy Odyssey crewneck sweatshirt I got in an XL size to feel as close to being wrapped in a blanket at all times as possible.

In the past several months, I've started to expand my horizons, considering the ways in which I can bring my small wardrobe of comfortable bedroom clothing into the public. I've experimented with topping leggings and a sports bra with a denim jacket to the park, and an oversized sweatshirt worn as a dress, cinched at the waist with a belt when I'm out wearing leggings.

How To Dress Like Your Favorite 'Insecure' Characters — Without Spending $2,000

We take a look at the fashion of Insecure season 4, and how you can create these looks yourself.


Insecure is one of my favorite shows ever. It really encapsulates what it's like being a Black 20-something, trying to navigate the many ups and downs of life. Issa, Molly, Kelli, and Tiffany are living their best lives in California while dealing with the twists and turns that come with that.

From life to relationships to careers, this show truly captures everything that runs through my mind on a daily basis. The show has a sense of realness and a strong frankness that makes you gravitate toward the characters and root for their success.
