Day 20 – A song that you listen to when you’re angry

Posted in 30 Day Song Challenge, Uncategorized on October 7, 2014 by Sara Hammerzmith

Ahhh! This one was almost too easy! So many songs popped up in my head. But I’ll take the easy one, mostly because I think some of the other songs I might write about some other time.

People = Shit” by American metalband SlipKnot off “Iowa”. Really though, any song from SlipKnot will do when you are angry – I guess it’s the whole thing. This is why a lot of people seek comfort in metal music – it’s like an escape from reality, like, take “Disasterpiece” from the same band – “I wanna slit your throat and fuck the wound”. That’s the first line in the song.

Sure, it might sound violent. But this is the whole fucking thing. Then you hear Corey Taylor yell it out, and even you might, in a way pretending what you’d do to your tormenter if you could do anything. And once you’re done yelling out all your rage, you go back to normal.

Metal is healthy as fuck. I think I’ll write more about this tomorrow though.
