    I always listen to metal. It doesn't make me feel calm, nor does it make me feel angsty or anxious. It just makes me feel awesome and I like feeling awesome.

    If I come across it on the radio, I tell it to STFU and switch the station.

    That's what I do when I hear Nicki Minaj on the radio.

    I am not a patient person. I tend to lose patience with slow, presumably calming music. That makes it not calming to me.

    With 'angry' music it's easier to kick back and lose myself (in a good way).

    One word: Catharsis.

    If you really immerse yourself in angry music, the kind that expresses the exact kind of anger you've bottled up (or that you're currently feeling), the release is incredible.

    If I listen to calm music when I'm angry, it doesn't make me feel better -- it forces me to bottle up the anger. Which makes things worse in the long run.

    final exam music.....tapping in to the tribal ancestorial spirit to pass an exam...

    yeah catharsis but don't always take the words in the songs literal you know? They are metaphors for subjective states.

    Yeah, for me it triggers a catharsis I would have trouble experiencing on my own. I find that music doesn't change my emotional state that much - instead it intensifies whatever I'm already feeling, gets the emotional currents flowing more strongly, which helps me work through and purge it.
    Listening to happy music when I'm sad or tranquil music when I'm angry just grates on my nerves because it's the opposite of what I need at the moment. It just slows down the current and makes me feel internally stagnant and paralyzed by/trapped under the feeling.

    I think listening to a song that "matches" my emotions also creates a feeling of being understood. Even though this understanding by something external is illusory (I think it's really self-understanding - people channel their own (sometimes previously repressed) feelings into works of art and then identify with them, like looking into a mirror), it's comforting anyway.
