Raging songs to play when you’re mad at the world
By Valentina Yanez
R&B, Pop, and Reggaeton are just a few of the many music genres I listen to, but I still thought something was missing in my life. I realized I needed something faster and “in your face” to deal with my teenage angst.
Rock, specifically punk, motivates me to do the things that I love and not care what anyone thinks. In a strange way, music reassures me that everything is going to be OK – that I am not alone in what I am feeling.
In my musical travels, I noticed that woman-fronted bands never receive enough recognition for their contributions to punk and rock n’ roll. So, here is a playlist of some of my favorite songs to highlight the work of these talented musicians.
Here are a few of the song titles and bands that will help you rock away whatever is on your mind:
- Wall Watcher — Sunflower Bean
- Kool Thing — Sonic Youth
- Heather Doubtfire — The Paranoyds
- Is It Day Or Night? — The Runaways
- X Offender — Blondie
It’s been a few months since my last post, but here I am again. [I never left]. Here’s a compilation of some of my favorite songs. I believe they’re good to listen to when you’re feeling mad at the world or even just to work out.
I hope you enjoy listening to this as much as I do. The playlist is available on Spotify by searching ‘Rock n’ Grrrl.’
