In an angry mood? Slipknot are the band for you, according to Spotify data

Iowan metal titans Slipknot have been deemed the top artist to listen to while angry, at least that’s according to Spotify data.

Ticket search engine TickX used Playlist Miner to explore a multitude of Spotify playlists that included the words happy’, love’, sad’, chill’, sexy’ and angry’ to find the most popular songs and artists for each mood. The data they sourced found that Slipknot are the most popular artist people listened to when angry.

The most popular angry’ song is Disturbeds nu-metal anthem Down With The Sickness, although two Slipknot songs also feature in the Top 5
