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 Eeyore - Slipknot

"It's about this one dude who used to be in every mosh pit at every metal show. He was this gigantic blonde dude, long blonde hair, and we called him "Thor", and he was a f***ing a**hole. So one night, like just a bunch of people- 'cause he would be throwing elbows, he wouldn't help people up, he was the d**k in the pit, let's put it that way, everybody knows that one d**k in the pit. So one night, everybody got around him and they f***ing housed his a**, like they worked him out, and he wasn't in the pit for a while, you know? S**t happens, too bad it happened down your leg bud! And that's what that song was about, 'cause I was there and I watched it and it was BRUTAALLL!... Sometimes you have to learn Thor, sorry." - Corey Taylor, describing the lyrical content to "Eeyore".

A hidden track at the very end of SlipKnot's self-titled album, the track hits you with an overly aggressive wave of guitars, fast drums, and Corey absolutely screaming his ...more - BloodyThunderX

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 Happy Camper - Strapping Young Lad
5 Get This - Slipknot

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

6 Kim - Eminem

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

This is angrier than most heavy metal songs.

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 Underneath the Waves - Strapping Young Lad
9 Cyberwaste - Fear Factory

A rage stricken song about the negativity from the media and former members. This song was made with the passion of rage.

10 F***ing Hostile - Pantera

Damn right Phil

The Newcomers

? X.Y.U - Smashing Pumpkins

How is this song not on the list at all. - Soulstealer

The Contenders

11 Master of Puppets - Metallica
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

A lot of f bombs

14 Given Up - Linkin Park
15 Dyers Eve - Metallica
16 Aesthetics of Hate - Machine Head
17 Surfacing - Slipknot
18 Exile - Slayer
19 Blood Pigs - Otep

20 Break Stuff - Limp Bizkit

Awesome song to listen to when you're pissed off

It has 40 f bombs in it

21 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.

22 The Great Southern Trendkill - Pantera
23 Warhead - Otep
24 Repentless - Slayer

Why wasn’t this song on here? - railfan99

25 Angel of Death - Slayer
26 Right Now - Korn
27 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…

Scott Lewis is a genius lyricist m/ - ThatStrangeKid42
