Historically, there has never been a shortage of religious doomsayers. Everyone knows their rap: "Repent! The end is near!" etc. Additionally, pop culture has been supporting dim-witted proclamations of the end of times with golden oldies like: Y2K, the comet Elenin, and of course the return of Quetzalcoatl. People obviously derive a great deal of pleasure fantasizing about the destruction of the world, which is represented cinematically in a variety of ways. Post-apocalyptic films range in tone from campy and satirical to bleak and depressing, and in the best cases their soundtracks amplify their respective sentiments. For your catastrophic pleasure, the Weekly now presents a cross-section of apocalyptic film soundtracks, which should help readers visualize scenes they are likely to see in the event of the world's end.
