Developing Aggression

My personality is very laid back and non aggressive. Frankly, it's hard for me to find my aggressive, fighting core, and I am looking for ways to learn to tap into that. (My instructor is always saying things like, "Don't ask him if he's alright! I want to see you hit that guy!") One way I've learned to bring out my fighting energy is to listen to high-energy aggressive music when I train. I have two questions for you all:

1) How have you learned to "flip the switch" and generate a fighting aggression within you?

2) What do you listen to when you train?

Here are some high-energy aggressive tunes I've used in my training. (Nearly all of these contain language that may be inappropriate for young children.)

Eminem - Lose Yourself
Pronobozo - Full Flex
Let's Go - Trick Daddy
Korn - Got The Life
Korn - Souvenir
Rage Against The Machine - Bulls On Parade
Rage Against The Machine - Bulls On Parade
Sevendust - Enemy
Sevendust - Crucified
Stereomud - End of Everything
Marilyn Manson - Rock is Dead

I'd like to find more in the hip-hop genre.
