So, with all the hoopla about the world ending on Saturday, May 21st, I got to thinking about the right songs for the occasion of what might well be the last blog post here–the obvious one, of course, is R.E.M.’s “It’s the End of the World As We Know It (And I Feel Fine),” but there are plenty of other apocalyptic end-times tunes out there. I’ve posted a few below, can you think of any I missed?
Barry McGuire, “Eve Of Destruction”
Arch Enemy, “My Apocalypse”
Larry Norman, “Wish We’d All Been Ready”
(and as a bonus, a hilarious parody of the whole “Left Behind” phenomenon)
