Playlist for the Apocalypse

With the gloom and doom of the impending Apocalypse bearing down on our collective consciousness, there's no better time than now to give you this "Playlist for the Apocalypse," armed to the teeth with songs about living, dying, surviving, and everything in between. These are songs for fighting, for fleeing, or just laughing and saying its "fine." If you want to scream into the void as it comes hurling toward you, may these songs give you the strength you need. And if you just want to sit back, relax, and wait for whatever today has in store, that's fine too. Don't be afraid, the "sun doesn't go down," it just takes some time off. And if the world does end, celebrate in style. After all, you only get one apocalypse.
