Music Monday: Angry

My friend was handing out power rings and asked what emotion I identified with out of love, avarice, rage, fear, hope, willpower, or compassion. I immediately identified with rage. I have a temper that is mostly kept in check but some things (WMATA, animal abuse) have the ability to set it off.

One of the best things that help me soothe my inner beast is music that corresponds to my emotion.
