Top 10 Angriest Songs

The Top Ten

1 S.Y.L. - Strapping Young Lad

I could try and make a post explaining the deep felt anger behind this song, but it simply has to be heard to be understood. Devin Townsend pulls NO punches here, delivering the message right onto the start, and the repeated f-bombs and hard shouting on top of a mess of hard hitting metal, really drives the point home. S.Y.L. is unrelenting, and its message is as straight-forward as it gets. One hell of a listen and deserves to be in the Top 10, no question about it. - BloodyThunderX

2 Happy Camper - Strapping Young Lad
3 Payback - Slayer

It begins with middle fingering someone, and then it builds up until a fight, where the narrator brutally dismembers and tears the flesh and bone out of the person he hates. Just very hateful, and a great song to vent out to when you are pissed, as no one would rationally tear the flesh and bone out of the one they really hate.

Angrier than Raining Blood or Kim!

4 Underneath the Waves - Strapping Young Lad
5 Cyberwaste - Fear Factory
6 Kim - Eminem

This is angrier than most heavy metal songs.

You can tell Eminem had a happy, loving relationship with Kim.

This song is extremely angry

"now it's double homicide and suicide with no note"
The sheer intensity of this line...

7 People = S*** - Slipknot

The title is true we're evil but for some reason maggots like the name I just like the song

One of the darkest and angriest albums I've heard in my life - KMalik993

8 Aesthetics of Hate - Machine Head
9 F***ing Hostile - Pantera
10 Master of Puppets - Metallica

The Contenders

11 Get This - Slipknot

I thought People = was the angriest song ever, but then I heard this one

12 Killing in the Name - Rage Against the Machine

I’d say we hate you by electric wizard or war nerve by pantera but I can’t find either

13 Dyers Eve - Metallica
14 Disciple - Slayer

A lot of f bombs

Gotta be higher - DejanKalinic

15 Given Up - Linkin Park
16 Exile - Slayer
17 Surfacing - Slipknot
18 Blood Pigs - Otep

Has anyone listened to this song? It's angry as hell

19 Break Stuff - Limp Bizkit

Awesome song to listen to when you're pissed off

It has 40 f bombs in it

20 Warhead - Otep
21 The Great Southern Trendkill - Pantera
22 Jerk-Off - Tool

The intensity in the singers hatred just grow exponentially to the point where even a gargantuan scream of seething hatred seems like its not enough and he is almost incapable to exclaim anymore and simply barks expletives. A true monster of hate.

23 Repentless - Slayer

Why wasn’t this song on here? - railfan99

24 Right Now - Korn
25 Lie to My Face - Carnifex

Why in the world is Taylor Swift on this list? Just saw a song by her above a bunch of others, which actually were deserving of a spot. Nothing Swift has ever made is even close to angry - it's whiney little preteen girl crap. ANYWAY, you don't know real anger until you've heard "Lie to My Face". Unlike a bunch of pop-punk songs I also see here, this song radiates hatred and anger. It's that feeling of pure negative energy for that someone who you struggle to be happy with - that you just want them to lie and say everything will be alright. And unlike the unfair amount of Slipknot songs dominating this list, Carnifex actually uses emotional words in their songs. They (unlike Slipknot) aren't just saying random swear words all over the place to look "cool". Because it's not. You don't need a bunch of f-bombs to be angry, this song has literally 1 curse in the whole thing. People just don't know what angry really is…
