Not that I'm violent or anything, far from it. But I have found that listening to angry music helps taking my anxiety away. Just yesterday I had to listen two hours of Limp Bizkit and Linkin Park and some other stuff and while it's not all gone(anxiety), it's much less. I have tried listening to merry and happy music, I have loads of it and if I'm a happy bunny then I like it very much.
I can relate to this. I used to use Tupac's "Holler if you hear me" every morning to get pumped to wake up, get out of bed, and go to the gym. Although most pump-up music is angry, you can find non-violent pump-up music (such as Red Hot Chili Peppers.) (Note: RHCP songs are all about sex, but I don't find that offensive like songs about violence.)
