Ah, the holidays: a time for ample cheer, abundant food, and good times spent with friends and family. Happiness and unity are the end goals — but at the end of one of the shittiest years in recent memory, it's going to be damn hard to resist lobbing a dinner roll at that nosy aunt who won't stop nagging you about when you're going to get a job or a significant other, or refrain from cussing out the uncle who, between great big bites of green bean casserole, insists that Barack Obama is a secret Muslim.

It's enough to make you scream — but screaming at the dinner table is rude, and besides, nobody likes a sourpuss. That's why, when you feel your blood start to boil, you should kindly excuse yourself to "pick up a few things at the grocery store real quick" — some more paper towels, perhaps, or another jar of mayo. Once you're out of there, put on this playlist, turn the volume all the way up, and let these tunes do the cathartic heavy listing. The sweet sounds of Trapped Under Ice, Suicidal Tendencies, Knocked Loose and others will melt away your misery — at least for a little while. Take all the time you need, and if anyone asks: they were all sold out of mayo. You tried.
