Apocalypse Please: A Playlist For The End Of The World

So, today’s the day. According to nutjob US preacher Harold Camping, today marks the beginning of the end of the world. At 6pm, to be exact, regardless of timezone – that’s one very well co-ordinated apocalypse. Of course, this got me thinking about songs that would thematically fit in with our apparent, impending doom, and I came up with this lot:

1. ‘Apocalypse Please’ – Muse
2. ‘Hate To Say I Told You So’ – The Hives
3. ‘The End And Everything After’ – Johnny Foreigner
4. ‘Get Myself Into It’ – The Rapture
5. ‘Baptism’ – Crystal Castles
6. ‘Commotion’ – The Hundred In The Hands
7. ‘Murderer’- Grammatics
8. ‘Neon Bible’ – Arcade Fire
9. ‘We Are Beautiful, We Are Doomed’ – Los Campesinos!
10. ‘Numbskull’ – Ash
11. ‘OUCH’ – Be Your Own Pet
12. ‘I’m Not Afraid’ – Howling Bells

Spotify playlist is here. Feel free to make your own suggestions in the comments.

Of course, the deadline for The Rapture has apparently passed without event for much of the eastern world already… so, see you tomorrow, I guess?
