It was probably around month two (May) of quarantine when I realized I was pissed at the world. I mean, I was stuck at home, almost done with school, without prospects of a summer job, and I hadn’t even been able to club on my eighteenth birthday. My internal frustration led to a cycle of egocentric bitterness; I was beginning to believe COVID was out there to specifically ruin my life.
Instead of buying a bunch of fish (which is what I have resorted to now), I decided to cope by listening to songs by women who literally just hate the world, and it worked. Since we are now bridging the most stressful and anger-inducing week of the semester, I figured I’d compile some of my favorites so you can release your pent-up rage by screaming along to these lady-bangers. The playlist can be found here.
This concludes my playlist on women who deserve better, take better, or live better due to their anger. I hope that when you are feeling upset, you can lean on this playlist, scream along, and after 33 minutes find yourself feeling a little bit better, if not wholeheartedly empowered. Keep it up, ladies.
