The Angry Woman Playlist

I have a playlist in iTunes I call "Angry Woman." The name is a bit of a misnomer -- it started out being songs by Alanis Morissette and Storm Large and other such artists who have songs that seem ... well ... angry. Over time, however, it's more evolved to a point where the "Angry Woman" applied to me more than to any of the artists or their songs. (To be quite accurate, I should probably change the name to "Depressed, Angry, or Otherwise Somewhat Dissatisfied with the State of Life In General Woman," but iTunes won't let me, so "Angry Woman" it remains.)

At any rate, these are songs that I find validating, empowering, or just otherwise amusing to listen to when I'm down. I was looking for additions to this playlist today on iTunes, where I found a lovely Cranberries' version of Fleetwood Mac's "Go Your Own Way," and Queen's "Who Wants to Live Forever."

Then I remembered that I still had free downloads available at emusic.com, so I went there to try to find Limp Bizkit's "Break Stuff." Sadly, they only had a tribute version, however, they also had what led to the following IM conversation, which I now present for your amusement because I'm too lazy to write a real blog entry for today:

mrsveteran: When I go to this Limp Bizkit tribute album on emusic, it gives related artists as Nine Inch Nails, Severed Heads, and Revolting Cocks.
mrsveteran: Also Pigface.
mrsveteran: So, now, I have to wonder.
mrsveteran: Just what sort of music do you get from the Revolting Cocks?
mrsveteran: And are they angrier than, say, Severed Heads?
mrsveteran: And what about poor Pigface? I would be angry if I had a pigface.
<FellowIMer>: true
mrsveteran: I would be even angrier than having a Limp Bizkit or Revolting Cocks, because at least you can hide that shit in your pants.
mrsveteran: But pigface -- I mean, you're kind of screwed.
mrsveteran: Unless you get some big motherfucking sunglasses.
mrsveteran: I think I'm going to copy this into a blog entry.

And so I did.
