OK, I’m going to level with you: I thought about changing my playlist because I was worried it would be too aggressive for most people. But then I remembered that I used to be embarrassed about listening to hardcore or metal music. Back in the day, I’d keep some radio rock bands around that I could play in the truck if I had a date or something. But at the end of the day, this is the music I love. I’m a metal guy.

I grew up as a drummer in our church. While listening to my headphones, my pastor always used to ask me what I was practicing to. Frankly, he probably would have had a heart attack if I played my music through the speakers! 

Training hard to my favorite songs is probably the best therapy there is. Have you ever tried working out to metal? Hey, maybe you need a little aggression release in your life, too? Give it a try — you just might love it!
