Freaky Friday (2003)
What We’re Listening To: Rage
MUSIC for ANGRy SPEEDWALKing.
By The music team
Check out the playlist here.
“Control,” Mannequin PussyYeah it’s good to process anger, but sometimes I just want noise.
“Bloody Mother Fucking Asshole,” Martha WainwrightMy favorite thing about Jennifer’s Body is that the real villain is the pretentious lead singer of an indie-rock band. This Martha Wainwright classic eviscerates those guys who are hell-bent on making you feel inferior. It’s rage-fueled, but ultimately still so vulnerable.
“November,” WednesdayI love it when a song explodes two-thirds of the way through. “The windows smirk at me, they're letting in the dark / There's nothing like the way you loiter in my heart!!!!!”
LAYLA:There’s nothing like screaming “I’m gonna kill you” along with Corin Tucker.
“Terrorist,” Heavens to Betsy
“Smack a bitch,” Rico NastyThe perfect song for when something’s grinding your gears. It feels like that exact moment of pent-up rage right before you’re about to smack someone.
“Ridin Spinners,” Three 6 Mafia
Makes me think of driving around 2015 Memphis in my friend Buck’s car with the volume ear-splittingly high. Nothing relieves rage quite like feeling the bass of Three 6 Mafia in your chest.
“She,” Green Day
“Scream at me / Until my ears bleed / I’m taking heed just for you.” My favorite Green Day song. I remember hearing it for the first time freshman year of high school at theatre camp. World was changed.
“Urge to Purge,” Charly Bliss
This song encapsulates young-adult rage against the system. Help. Entering the world is certainly never what anyone expects. “If this is playing grown up / Hold my hair back as I throw up.” Rage makes me think of being a teenager. Obviously.
