A long time ago and in a galaxy far away...
Well, in this galaxy. This planet even. Once upon a time, an ancient civilization created a freakishly accurate calendar. In recent years, crazy people have gone nuts over the discovery that the Mayan calendar ends on 12/21/12. AKA: today.
Christians believe that no one can predict the day that the world will end. Scientists estimate we still have billions of years before our sun dies. Even the people that descended from the Mayans don't believe that their ancestors predicted doomsday. My reaction: meh.
But if you're one of those gullible people making rash decisions based on the assumption that there's no tomorrow, you might as well go out listening to some cool music. Here are my ten recommendations for the sounds of your last day on planet earth. Hopefully, my reasoning for these selections should be self explanatory - starting with the first song ever played on 107.7 The End.
R.E.M. - It's The End Of The World As We Know It (And I Feel Fine)
U2 - Last Night on Earth
Dave Matthews Band - When The World Ends
Elton John - Goodbye Yellow Brick Road
Steve Taylor - On The Fritz
Ash - End of the World
Eels - Last Stop: This Town
Soundgarden - Blow Up the Outside World
Family Force 5 - Zombie
The Doors - The End
I'm sure I missed something. Anyone?
