Therapist uses System of a Down’s song Toxicity to talk about how people often get stuck in a life that feels dreary, hopeless, and boring, and they will often rage against that but quickly go back to living an unfulfilling life. We can use anger, the rage to help us get out of this situation if we are intentional about directing our anger and giving it a purpose instead of just shooting it out into the world.

You’ve quickly become one of my new favorite reactors!!!

There’s so many SOAD tracks out there for you to sink your teeth into!!! I’d love to hear your take on “Spiders” or “Hynotize”!!!

Some of the tracks you’ve reacted to recently (including this one) don’t have any plainly stated emotional commentary, yet you dig through the political/societal commentary and find the emotional red line. And, you take the time to turn that perspective into something actionable. Fuckin awesome.

Also, I’d LOVE to see your take on the piano version of “Mien Herz Brennt” by Rammstein!! The lyrics are in German but it’s so worth checking out. The video for it expresses a simple, yet profound representation of childhood trauma. It’s beautiful. Keep up the great work!!!

Cheers

Highly suggest checking out “The Virus of Life” by Slipknot; It’s one of my favorite songs by them in terms of surface themes, and is quite dark and horror oriented on that front. I’d like to see if you could wring a different interpretation out of it than what’s literal in the lyrics.

Another great one in this vein, so to speak, is “Iowa”, a fifteen minute long song that left my jaw on the floor. It’s just as bone chilling, but there might be more of an obvious underlying meaning properly present in that one.

I love this positivity,I’m 53 and have just been diagnosed with depression and anxiety (on tablets just to take the edge off)
Rock and metal has always been my refuge,in the metal clubs and concerts nobody ever judges and that acceptable has been incredibly important (and even life saving for some.
Thankyou so much for being a voice of understanding and reason :blush:
