It’s The End of the World: Apocalyptic Playlist


I thought I’d do this for fun! When most websites compile lists of their favorite apocalyptic songs and music videos, some of these are probably not the first to come to mind. So, enjoy!

Living Colour – “Time’s Up”

Fishbone – “Party at Ground Zero”

Exuma – Paul Simon Nontooth (it’s about a zombie revival, for all those who believe in the zombie apocalypse)

Bob Marley – “Natural Mystic”

Ben E. King – “Stand By Me” (I know many think of this as a romantic love song, but he is singing about a blackout, the sky falling and mountains crumbling into the sea.)

Whitney Houston – “My Love Is Your Love”

Stevie Wonder – “As”

Soul Stirrers – “Jesus Hits Like the Atom Bomb” (I had to include a gospel judgement day song, why not this one!)

Janet Jackson – “Rhythm Nation” (Thanks i09 for convincing me that this is an apocalyptic video.)

Blackalicious- “The Sky Is Falling”

Busta Rhymes- “Fire It Up”

Funkadelic- “Wars of Armageddon”

Marvin Gaye – “Mercy Mercy Me”

Sun Ra and The Intergalactic Solar Arkestra – “It’s After the End of the World”

Bonus: Dudley Perkins feat. Aloe Blacc: “Apocalyptic Music”
