End of the world songs to avoid this rapture

Since 2000, we music-lovers have compiled playlists, made mix-CDs and collected our favorite "End of the World" songs. If these three songs make an appearance on your End Times CD, you're doing it wrong. - Melissa Crowe
Europe - "The Final Countdown"
It's a masterpiece of cheesiness dressed in poodle haircuts. Nothing like having Swedish synthesizers stuck in your head all day once someone mentions "Final" and "Countdown" in the same sentence.
R.E.M. - "It's the End of the World As We Know It"
To every person who thinks they can sing this song but only knows the chorus, I hope you go first.
Blondie - "Rapture"
Rapping before rapping was cool. No. It's bad. Very bad.
