Feeling of sadness or depression, usually felt in the teen years. The whole depression thing isn't really helped by the fact that almost all rock music (the music most angsty people I know listen to,) is aout NOTHING BUT being depressed, or contemplating suicide. But a lot of angsty teens listen anyway, because they think that they can relate to super rich adult celebrities.
Music: Suffocation, no breathing, don't give a f*ck if I cut my arms bleeding...
Angsty teen: Oh Papa Roach...you know how I feel...
Papa roach: *enjoying a giant swimming pool at a resort somewhere*
