Being angry is a horrible state of mind to be in but it happens to us all at some point. It can be caused by pretty much anything from a serious situation to a silly and mundane matter.
Some like to shout and scream either at the world in general or unfortunatley at those around them. Some choose to seethe and grumble until some unfortunate soul asks "So what's up with you then?"
Some like to take it as part of life and just get on with it, others take it like a badge of honour as if feeling bad is part of there lot in life.
There are lots of ways of dealing with it but what is your particular take on this?
I am pretty angry right now so if I take your answer the wrong way well then....

When i was growing up, i was an angry kid.
I had a very bad relationship with my mother. She was very abusive to me , but not with my other two brothers. After a short time dealing with the frustration of trying to convince everyone of what was happening, i realised that there was no good way to deal with it. So i left home at 13yo in 1992. I never turned to hard drugs, but heavy music was what i would turn to. Nowadays my musical taste is far wider, but i still turn to music to get my mind off of the petty things that bother me. I'm not very angry any more, but i am a lot more in control of my life now. If i were put back in a situation like that, i would be just as angry.

I like that you say you turn to heavy music(or did do)
What music helped you at the time if I may ask?

I am also angry and have been for weeks. I am dealing with a civil law suit, the death of my mother, human stupidity (granted this is an every day occurrence for most of us) not to mention I haven't been feeling well physically which all leads to me not being able to sleep.
Please let me know when you figure out how to stop feeling this way. Right now my Libertarian porcupine (Libertarian mascot) is bristling and I would hate to think what will happen to someone that rubs me the wrong way right now. Arrrgghhh!
