Top 10 Songs with a High Anxiety FactorMetal_Treasure These songs make me anxious when I listen to them - I mean their music and not so much their lyrics. Usually the riff brings this anxiety but not only. Nevertheless, I like most of these songs so don't get me wrong.
You may be surprised that most of these songs aren't metal - you probably expected metal songs from me but in fact, not many metal songs have this effect on me.
Also, this is very subjective and the songs that have similar effects on you are probably different.
This is a definition from wiki:
"Anxiety is an emotion characterized by an unpleasant state of inner turmoil, often accompanied by nervous behavior, such as pacing back and forth, somatic complaints and rumination. It is the subjectively unpleasant feelings of dread over anticipated events, such as the feeling of imminent death.
Anxiety is not the same as fear, which is a response to a real or perceived immediate threat, whereas anxiety is the expectation of future threat. Anxiety is a feeling of fear, uneasiness, and worry, usually generalized and unfocused as an overreaction to a situation that is only subjectively seen as menacing."
