Slipknot Ranked As Best Artist to Listen to When You Are Angry
Called “The Ultimate Playlist for Every Mood,” Spotify used it’s data through the Playlist Miner at the end of October and curated a set of artists, songs and genres for different moods including happy, sad, angry and the stats were drawn from a variety of playlists that featured those six moods as key words.
Slipknot was ranked the top artists to listen to when you’re angry, which shouldn’t be any surprise. . Three Days Grace, Linkin Park, Disturbed and Avenged Sevenfold were also included in the same category
Slipknot’s most popular tracks included “Duality” and “Before I Forget” made the top 5 list of angriest songs, but Disturbed’s “Down With the Sickness” took the lead in that group. Alternative Metal was listed as the angriest genre, followed by dance pop, emo, dark trap and Detroit hip-hop.

27 Years Ago James Hetfield Narrowly Escaped a Dangerous Situation at a Metallica Concert
Back in 1992 Guns N’ Roses and Metallica did a co-headlining stadium tour around North America. During a stopover in Montreal, Canada on August 8, 1992 Metallica frontman James Hetfield would be burned in a pyrotechnic accident and would suffer severe burns. Making matters worse is that Guns N’ Roses frontman Axl Rose would incite a riot when his band walked off stage 45 minutes into their set. Check out our retrospective of the incident below1
Dave Ellefson Sings on New Ballad Detailing His Complicated Relationship With Frontman Dave Mustaine
Megadeth planning on releasing new music before embarking going on a European tour supporting Five Finger Death Punch (that makes no sense right?) in January of next year. In a new interview with Rolling Stone Magazine, frontman and guitarist Dave Mustaine revealed that he encouraged bassist David Ellefson to write a ballad about their tumultuous relationship, which has been improving in recent years.
With working titles such as “The Dogs of Chernobyl,” “Faster Than Anything Else” and “Rattlehead, Part Two,” Megadeth have songs ready to go, they just need to get into the studio and record the tracks with Mustaine saying. “It might be two, it might be four,”
The two have had a difficult past as Ellefson now operates as a salaried employee since 2002 with Mustaine elaborating. “‘I think you should write a song about what it’s like being in Megadeth with me, because I read all your lyrics, and I know that your lyrics are aimed at me,’” Mustaine told Ellefson. “‘You’re upset. So why don’t you write about it?’”
There’s no confirmation the song will make it onto Megadeth’s next album with Mustaine saying “I’m going to try to work on it now for this record,” urged Mustaine, “and if it doesn’t get on this record, I’m going to try to work on it on the next record because it was actually really cool to see Ellefson writing something and hear him singing.”
The still untitled album will be Megadeth’s follow up to2016’s Dystopia, which earned Megadeth their first Grammy victory for Best Metal Performance for the title track. It’ll also be the first for drummer Dirk Verbeuren, who replaced Chris Adler part-way through the tour to support Dystopia.
Megadeth originally planned on releasing a new album this year, but Dave Mustaine’s throat cancer diagnosis delayed the recording process and . In his latest update, he said he’s feeling “strong.”
