Playlist to rock out end of the world party

I See Stars band


“End of the World Party” by I See Stars

At the end of it all, everyone will probably be throwing insane parties. Well why not have a song that states: “Welcome to the end of the world party. Your first move might be your last. This is the night we all leave it behind. Goodbye for the last time”? All the while having a techno party beat coupled with a metal-like heaviness.




Alice Cooper


“Last Man on Earth” by Alice Cooper

There is a chance, at the end of it all, you might be the only one left, so if you are, this song that could become your personal leisurely theme. While you wander around a desolate Earth, you will be singing “don't need to care about tomorrow, I got no pain, I got no sorrow.”




R.E.M.


“It’s the End of the World as We Know It (and I Feel Fine)” by R.E.M.

Everything about this song illustrates the end times and makes it the perfect end of the world anthem. As the world comes crashing down, we can all start singing this fast upbeat song and look forward to “some time alone” and “feel fine” about the end of the world.






Family Force 5


“Dance or Die” by Family Force 5

With the line “We will survive. We’re running out of time. The world ends tonight, unless we dance or die,” this is another great end of the world party tune to dance your way into the apocalypse.





The Clash


“London Calling” by The Clash

This apocalyptic song mentions the many ways the world could end whether “the ice age is coming,” “a nuclear error,” “zombies of death,” etc. and does it in a very catchy, punk way.




Metallica


“Four Horsemen” by Metallica

There is mention in the Bible that there are four horsemen of the apocalypse, and this Metallica song is about them. With crazy guitar riffs and a heavy sound, this song just sounds apocalyptic.





Muse


“Apocalypse Please” by Muse

This song’s repetitious lyrics, “Declare this an emergency. Come on and spread a sense of urgency, and pull us through, and pull us through. And this is the end, this is the end of the world,” get the point across with some great dissonant music that adds to the apocalyptic theme.





The Misfits


"Don't Open 'Til Doomsday" by The Misfits

The chorus orders; “Don't open 'til doomsday. Destruction's not far away. Don't open 'til doomsday, you might not like what you find inside.” This horror-punk song illustrates the possibility of the destruction of Earth being closer and more centralized than we think, and anyone can bring it upon us.





Pink Floyd


"Goodbye Blue Sky" by Pink Floyd

With the possibility of a nuclear holocaust, this song sets that mood perfectly. With quiet acoustic guitar and looming deeper, darker sounds, this song is perfect to set the mood for the aftermath of any sort of apocalypse we may face.





Blue Oyster Cult


"Don't Fear the Reaper" by Blue Oyster Cult

Because we’re all going to die in the end of it all, it’s probably a good thing to remember not to fear the reaper as he comes for your soul when everyone and everything dies.
