Day 20 – A song that you listen to when you’re Angry – Welcome to the Jungle by Guns N’ Roses

I don’t necessarily seek out a particular song when I’m angry but there are various musical moments where I can go to vent. One favourite has to be the first brilliant album by The Alarm – Declaration. There is no need singing a song when you can shout it…”I cry with anger, I have done no crime…Sixty Eight Guns will never die”  It’s one of the purest chants out there, and having seen them live many times one of my favourite concert moments.

But for sheer screaming aggression you can’t beat Axl Rose – forget the swooning of November Rain, it’s the tirade that comes with Paradise City and Welcome to the Jungle that is made for pure venting.

“Welcome to the jungle it gets worse here every day
Ya learn to live like an animal in the jungle where we play
If you hunger for what you see you’ll take it eventually
You can have everything you want but you better not take it from me”

Ooh.  Better go and have a sit down now.
