13 Songs for Revenge

by Megan S.

Commuting is boring.  Whether you're stuck in a traffic jam or packed tightly on public transportation with your nose practically in someone's armpit, it's hard not to wish you were anywhere but there.  Or, at least, that's how I feel.  So, to escape the horrors of a backpack poking my spleen and the damp wool smell of defeat on a Muni bus, I slip on my earphones and envision something better.

For the last week, I've been a heroine hell bent on revenge* with a soundtrack to match.  My playlist includes everything I need to be a woman who takes the law into her own hands and brings down the Big Bad.  And in case you're in need of an escape, I thought I'd share my carefully crafted list with you, too.

*This may be because I just finished watching 22 episodes of ABC's Revenge over the span of two weeks.  It's not genre so I haven't mentioned it on S4, but if you haven't seen it, you should stop whatever you're doing now and watch... Wait a second.  You're reading this.  Scratch that.  Finish this post, make a suggestion to add to my revenge playlist and THEN go watch it.

  1. Aw, I seriously expected Tear You Apart to show in this list!

  2. Muse always put me in a good revenge mood. Like Take a Bow and Assassin from Black Holes and Revelations, off the top of my head.
