AG doesn't listen to a lot of metal or punk, but she told me that sometimes she has "rage days," something that I don't understand the point of having if you don't listen to a lot of punk and metal.
- Metallica, "Battery"
- Converge, "Dark Horse"
- Nine Inch Nails, "Wish"
- Black Sabbath, "War Pigs"
- Faith No More, "Falling to Pieces"
- The Stooges, "Search and Destroy"
- Sepultura, "Refuse/Resist"
- Slayer, "Angel of Death"
- Lamb of God "Now You've Got Something to Die For"
- Minor Threat, "Filler"
- Suicidal Tendencies, "You Can't Bring Me Down"
- Nirvana, "Heart-Shaped Box"
- Mastodon, "Blood and Thunder"
- Marilyn Manson, "The Fight Song"
- Rage Against the Machine, "Killing in the Name"
- Stiff Little Fingers, "Suspect Device"
- Pantera, "Fucking Hostile"
- Nick Cave & the Bad Seeds, "Stagger Lee"
One thing I learned from putting together a specifically rage-based mix is how happy a lot of the best metal bands are. Even at their most belligerant, Iron Maiden, Judas Priest, AC/DC, Van Halen, High on Fire, Motörhead, Ozzy and Amon Amarth are too gleeful to follow up songs like "Angel of Death" or "Dark Horse." Thus instead we get Metallica at their fiercest, Pantera at their most hostile and topping it all off, Nick Cave, to show that some of metal's most raging tracks can even hold up against "Stagger Lee."
