musical anger

Anger in music - when did this first become popular?

I have gotten a copy of Rob Dougan's music - sounds from the Matrix Reloaded (and the answer is NO I have not seen it yet). Listening to Furious Angels led me to realize that our music has really gotten to express anger. I cannot recall this as I was growing up and began that stage where I listened to music to understand it. Anger via rap music seems the earliest I can recall the expression. It may be frustration over our environment coming through, but it is SOMETHING to THINK ABOUT.
