Just filling in here: there are plenty of examples that a person can  
be is a true asshole as a fellow human, but still be serene as an  
angle in the music he or she creates. Or vice versa.

I think that's because when a person listens to music it activates  
the same inner (psychological and emotional) mechanisms that  also go  
with "taking action". So if your girlfriends personality (at that  
time) urged here to do things in a different way that the music  
implied for her, it explains her feelings of stress. Since the  
clashing happens at such a deep level i ones mind it's not even sure  
the person understands what's going on; typically only senses the  
threatening feeling, as if asked to do something one don't want to do.
