This may sound very negative but which song would you play at the end of the world, a soundtrack to the apoalypse. Personally I would have Blackout by muse. It has a sort of calmness to it.

Depends- are we mourning or partying?

"Golden-Vein" from the Cocteau Twins "Twinlights" ep

(possibly the most beautiful song ever)

"Fight Fire with Fire" by Metallica - or maybe "Battery" or "The Four Horsemen".

Presuming it might last a little while, I'd probably add "Surf Nicaragua" by Sacred Reich, "Peace Sells - But Who's Buying" by Megadeth, "Angel of Death" by Slayer, and to finish off, ELP's first album (side 1).

It might be a bit scary - but what a soundtrack.

"Yackety Sax", the Benny Hill Theme tune.

At the end of the world: "Kyric", the first track of "Echoes", by Lacrimosa. Majestic sadness, and more sadness  .

All:

Y'all must be forgetful: wouldn't Supper's Ready be the perfect thing, since the final section is actually taken from the Revelation, and is called "Apocalypse in 9/8?"

Peace.

A song from GYBE!'s 'Yanqui U.X.O.' - a bit sombre, yet filled with exquisite string arrangements. Lately it has become my fave GYBE! album, and I think this music conveys both the sadness of ultimately dying along with the Universe, and at the same time, a certain kind of " trascendental hope" for "better things" to come in a different outer dimension.

There are many, as Maani said Supper's Ready is one of them, but my first choices are:

  1. 666 (Aphrodite's Child): Narrates all the book of Revelations.
  2. Heaven and Hell (Vangelis): Dark and mysterious.
  3. Journey to the Centre of the Earth (R. Wakeman): Pompous and gothic.

All of Muse's 'Absolution' album with Aphrodites Child The Four Horseman and ELP's Karn Evil 9 rounded off with Genesis 'Suppers Ready'(for the 'apocalypse section' of course!).

It's a funny question really.Only prog fans would spend their last day on Earth listening to their ELP,Yes and Genesis albums rather than trying to get layed!

The world is about to end, man! Fire and Brimstone time! The Beast, walking abroad. The Four Jockies of doom etc. I wanna see scantily clad nurses and puny little bald guys chasing  the person responsible for it all (insert world leader of choice) around a field in fast-mo, to the sound of "Yackety Sax"! It's the tune I want played at my funeral, as the box slides through the curtains. (my daughter says "No Way!", but it's what I want.)

How about something by Brittany Spears (sp?)? I think that would set the perfect mood for the End of Time.

Maybe Jeff Wayne's musical version of the War Of The Worlds... very spooky!

OK, if we must be relevant, (i.e. Suppers Ready, 4 horsemen, 666, etc.) then how about "Circus of Heaven", Yes. Not at all gloomy as end-of-the-world songs go.

To whoever mentioned them: My Dying Bride, excellent. But probably more suited to after the end of the world? lol

I think I'd have to choose the end of some conceptual extreme metal album, where all the demons are unleashed or the character goes on a bloody rampage or whatever, say Emperor's "Thorns on my Grave".

Or perhaps Rush's "Cygnus X-1, book 1" would be suited? The way it ends, certainly.

Or to look a little further back: Danse Macabre, or Night on a Bare Mountain?

Venom, "Warhead". When I heard it on the Friday Rock Show as a kid I nearly s**t my pants.

Have you heard the side-long epic "At War With Satan" (by Venom)?

That caused me to look for fresh Pampers a couple of times...

Maybe some Cannibal Corpse stuff (at the time of "butchered at birth") will fit to a soundtrack to the apocalypse.

KING CRIMSON - Requiem (from 'Beat'). It would fit perfectly for the apocalypse.

Johnny Cash - Hurt. I can't get away from it, I LOVE that track...would make for a suitably depressing End for me.

Supper's Ready would be a great song to listen to, but when leaving to heaven, i'd like to be listening to Pink Floyd's Atom Heart Mother. I hope we'll have prog music in heaven!

ARE WE TALKING OF THE APOCOLYPSE OF REVELATION?, IF THATS THE CASE THEN I SUGGEST THAT THERE WOULD BE NO TIME OR INCLINATION TO LISTEN TO MUSIC!

WE WOULD BE HAVING A HELL OF A LOT MORE TO BE THINKING ABOUT.

Supper's ready would be nice.And Sinatra's My way.So I could't go peaceful.

Well, Supper's ready ain't that bad and Gates of Delirium would make another good choice but I guess I'd find myself together with my girlfriend listening to Rockpommel's Land (the complete album). Then world could end, but I hope we would find ourselfs within the vibrations of this record.
