A study by the Journal of Personality and Social Psychology has apparently shown that violent music boosts aggressive thoughts, and that listening to music with violent and aggressive lyrics, may not be healthy and anger-relieving after all.

This may explain the feelings of intense anger and frustration I feel sometimes. On the other hand, it just may be normal young adult angst and frustration. Fortunately, the study notes that it is possible that the effects of the music may last for a fairly short time.

I guess I'm not on my way to becoming a raging homicidal psychopath. Gosh and durn.
