Let's be honest, we all have those days where even the smallest things can get a rise out of us. It's a natural part of being alive, although not a particularly fun one, but we all get angry now and then.

You may be a perpetually patient person, but everyone has their limits! And when you reach yours, there's nothing like listening to some angry songs that express all of the rage you're feeling.

Maybe something happened today that broke your very last straw — your boyfriend cheated, they ran out of your brand of deodorant, your boss wronged you again, or you spilled your coffee. Different things make different people tick (and rage), and whatever it is that caused your anger, you're fresh out of deep breaths today.

No matter what (or who) has you feeling mad, annoyed or just plain angry, we've got the best songs to rage out to so you can get it all out and calm yourself down.

Instead of losing your cool or freaking out and saying something you'll later regret, walk it off to the rhythm of these tunes.

Here are the 30 best angry songs to add to your rage anthem playlist and play on repeat until you're done feeling mad.
