The 10 Songs You Need to Listen to Before ‘the End of the World’

+

Publications everywhere are putting together playlists for the end of the world, like this one from The Independent, featuring such surprising songs as “It’s the End of the World As We Know It” by R.E.M. and “Until the End of the World” by U2 and this one from the Miami Herald featuring “It’s the End of the World As We Know It” by R.E.M. and  “The End of the World” by Skeeter Davis and “The End” by the Doors,  and this one from the Chicago Tribune featuring “The End” by The Doors, and “The End of the World” by Skeeter Davis, and this Huffington Post list featuring “It’s the End of the World As We Know It” by R.E.M. and “The End” by The Doors and “The End of the World” by Skeeter Davis and “Until the End of the World” by U2, and this one from the Atlanta Journal Constitution featuring “It’s the End of the World As We Know It” by R.E.M. and “The End” by The Doors and “The End of the World” by Skeeter Davis, and this one from McClatchy featuring, well, you’re never going to guess the songs they picked, but here’s a hint, just like every other one of these stupid fucking lists, Muse, and Johnny Cash, and Europe, and Blue Oyster Cult, and Def Leppard.

The thing is, all of those songs are awesome, the soul-crushing, oppressive monotony of the cliche notwithstanding. We tried to think outside the box for our playlist for your End of the World Party here, because if you’re the type of person shitty enough to actually believe in this nonsense, then this is what you deserve.
