Rock music is cathartic: Or, songs that scream out my rage against my stalkers

Rock music these days is full of songs about crazy/abusive women and bullies.  After my experiences with Tracy, who not only made my life hell for two and a half years but also began stalking me for telling the world about what she did, songs like this are cathartic:

They show I’m not the only one; they scream my own rage, and like catharsis in a Greek play, purify and purge it out of my system.

So if you’re feeling rage bubble up at your abusers/bullies again, listen to some of these songs to get it out in a healthy, bloodless, revengeless way.

Here are some of my favorites, which I mentally direct at Tracy when I hear them:

take your pills and get out
I don’t understand what the f**k you’re screaming about
Don’t blame me
For your problems
You should save yourself
Before you’re gonna save me
You need to find someone else to blame
For the hurt and the pain I’m not the reason that you’re insane

Escape the Fate–You’re Insane

 

There’s something about this psycho bi**h

I love to hate you
I love to hate you
Bi**h

Dope–Bi**h

 

Who do you think you are
Tearing us all apart?

Where did you think you could go?
‘Cause everyone already knows,
It’s 20 to 1
Yeah, so you better run!!!

You got the world on its knees
You’re taking all that you please
You want more
You want more

But you’ll get nothing from me

Shinedown–Enemies

 

Seems I’ve crossed the line again
For being nothing more than who I am

We don’t have to take this
Back against the wall
We don’t have to take this
We can end it all

All you’ll ever be
Is a faded memory of a bully

Shinedown–Bully

 

It’s been a long time coming
And the table’s turned around
‘Cause one of us is going
One of us is going down
I’m not running,
It’s a little different now
‘Cause one of us is going
One of us is going down

Sick Puppies–You’re Going Down
