I'm not sure if this belongs in skunkworks but I didn't know where else to put it. Also this is only to present some information for discussion, I'm not trying to form any elaborate conspiracy theories or anything.

There are defenitely quite a few popular music artists who incorporate the apocalypse or even aliens into their lyrics. Sometimes it is very subtle, perhaps in the form of just one word or an overall abstract idea. Other times its very blunt and obvious. Do you know of any common artists who incorporate these ideas into their songs? Here are a few that I have noticed, listed by artist and the song, also with a link to lyrics. If you follow any of the links, follow the tool one.

Blink182 - Aliens Exist This is a relatively obvious example of an artists belief in Aliens. Tom Delonge is widely known to believe in Aliens and even impending changes.

Angels & Airwaves - The Adventure In this song Tom Delonge talks about things like the rapture and maybe even Indigo children. Most people dont even realize this, but its quite obvious if you listen to the lyrics.
www.lyricstop.com...

Tool - Roseta Stoned Here we have what seems to be a claim or a story of nothing less than an Alien encounter. It is a beautiful song featuring the amazing vocals of their lead singer, Maynard. The entire Tool album 10,000 days has a strange apocalyptic feel, I highly recomend it for anyone who hasn't heard it yet.
www.azlyrics.com...

Mae - Cover Me This seems to be another obvious example of Apocalyptic lyrics. The first few lines includes the statement "the world is ending dont you even know".
www.plyrics.com...

Coldplay - The Speed of Sound This is more debateable, but I still think this song has undertones in the lyrics that suggest a belief in impending changes.
www.azlyrics.com...

There are many more examples of this, but I cant seem to think of any at the moment. These are the ones that stand out the most to me. What does it mean for our culture when major music artists adapt a belief in these kind of things? What is your opinion on this? What other songs have you noticed that have apocalypse or alien related material?

This is a wicked rap song by Immortal Technique called "The Point of No Return"

[Talking]
Yeah... It's that real this time around
Immortal Technique... Revolutionary Vol. 2
It's on now mother #er..
Lock and load!

[Verse 1]
This is the point of no return I could never go back
Life without parol up state shackled and trapped
Living in the hole, lookin' at the world through a crack
But # that, I'd rather shoot it out and get clapped
I've gone too far, there ain't no coming back for me
Auschwitz gas chamber full of Zyklon-B
Just like the spanish exterminating Tynos
Raping the black and Indian women, creating Latinos
Mother #ers made me out of self riteous hatered
And now you got yourself a virus, stuck in the Matrix
A suicide bomer strapped and ready to blow
Lethal injection strapped down ready to go
Don't you understand they'll never let me live out in peace
Concreate jungle, guerilla war out in the streets
Nat Turner with the sickle pitch fork and machette
The end of the world, mother #er you not ready
This is the point of no return and nobody can stop it
Malcolm little running up before Elijah Muhammad
The comet that killed the dinosaurs, changing the earth
They love to criticize they always say I change for the worse
Like prescription pills when you misusing them nigga
The Templar Nights when they took Jerusalem nigga
And figured out what was buried under Soloman's temple
Al Aksa the name is no coincidental
I know too much to government is trying to murder me
No coming back like cutting your wrists open vertically
How could the Serpent be purposely put in charge of the country
Genetic engineered sickness spread amongst me
My people are so hungry that they attack without reason
Like a #in' dog ripping off the hand that feeds him
Immortal Technique is treason to the patriot act
So come and get me mother #er cause I'm not coming back

[Hook]
This is the point from which I could never return
And if I back down now then forever I burn
This is the point from which I could never retreat
Cause If I turn back now there can never be peace
This is the point from which I will die and succeed
Living the struggle, I know I'm alive when I bleed
From now on it can never be the same as before
Cause the place that I'm from doesn't exist anymore

[Verse 2]
This is the point of no return nigga you better believe this
Mary Magdalene giving birth to the children of Jesus
The evolution of the world, bloody and dramatic
Human beings killing monkeys to conquer the planet
The kingdoms of Africa and Mesopotamia
Machine gunnin' your body with depleted uranium
This is the age of microchips and titanium
The dark side of the moon and contact with aliens
I started out like Australians, criminal minded
Broke into hell, tore it down, and built and city behind it
South Paw, murderous, methodology nigga
Remember that I'm just a man don't follow me nigga
Cause once you past the point you can never go home
You've got to face the possibility of dying alone
So tell me mother #er, how could you die for the throne
When you don't even got the #in' heart to die for your own
It rains acid, one day the earth will cry from a stone
And you'll be lookin' at the world livin' inside of a dome
Comperized humanity living inside of a clone
This is the place where the unknown is living and real
Wormwood to planet X and the seventh seal
Universal truth is not measured in mass appeal
This is the last time that I kneel and pray to the sky
Cause almost everything that I was always ever told was a lie

[Hook]
This is the point from which I could never return
And if I back down now then forever I burn
This is the point from which I could never retreat
Cause If I turn back now there can never be peace
This is the point from which I will die and succeed
Living the struggle, I know I'm alive when I bleed
From now on it can never be the same as before
Cause the place that I'm from doesn't exist anymore

"Cause of Death" by Immortal Technique

[Talking]
Immortal Technique
Revolutionary Volume 2
Yeah, broadcasting live from Harlem, New York
Let the truth be known..

[Verse 1]
You better watch what the # flies outta ya mouth
Or I'ma hijack a plane and fly it into your house
Burn your apartment with your family tied to the couch
And slit your throat, so when you scream, only blood comes out
I doubt that there could ever be a more wicked MC
'Cuz AIDS infested child molesters aren't sicker than me
I see the world for what it is, beyond the white and the black
The way the government downplays historical facts
'Cuz the United States sponsored the rise of the 3rd Reich
Just like the CIA trained terrorists how to fight
Build bombs and sneak box cutters onto a flight
When I was a child, the Devil himself bought me a mic
But I refused the offer, 'cuz God sent me to strike
With skills unused like fallopian tubes on a dyke
My words'll expose George Bush and Bin Laden
As two separate parts of the same seven headed dragon
And you can't fathom the truth, so you don't hear me
You think illuminati's just a #in conspiracy theory?
That's why Conservative racists are all runnin' #
And your phone is tapped by the Federal Government
So I'm jammin' frequencies in ya brain when you speak to me
Technique will rip a rapper to pieces indecently
Pack weapons illegally, because I'm never hesitant
Sniper scoping a commission controllin the president

[Hook]
Father, forgive them, for they don't know right from wrong
The truth will set you free, written down in this song
And the song has the Cause of Death written in code
The Word of God brought to life, let it save ya soul..

Save ya soul mother#er...save ya soul..

Yeah, yeah, yeah

[Verse 2]
I hacked the Pentagon for self-incriminating evidence
Of Republican manufactured white powder pestilence
Marines Corps. flat (?) vest, with the guns and ammo
Spittin' bars like a demon stuck inside a piano
Turn a Sambo into a soldier with just one line
Now here's the truth about the system that'll # up your mind
They gave Al Qaeda 6 billion dollars in 1989 to 1992
And now the last chapters of Revelations are coming true
And I know a lot of people find it hard to swallow this
Because subliminal bigotry makes you hate my politics
But you act like America wouldn't destroy two buildings
In a country that was sponsoring bombs dropped on our children
I was watching the Towers, and though I wasn't the closest
I saw them crumble to the Earth like they was full of explosives
And they thought nobody noticed the news report that they did
About the bombs planted on the George Washington bridge
Four Non-Arabs arrested during the emergency
And then it disappeared from the news permanently
They dubbed a tape of Osama, and they said it was proof
"Jealous of our freedom" I can't believe you bought that excuse
Rockin a mother#ing flag don't make you a hero
Word to Ground Zero
The Devil crept into Heaven, God overslept on the 7th
The New World Order was born on September 11

[Hook]

[Verse 3]
And just so Conservatives don't take it to heart
I don't think Bush did it, 'cuz he isn't that smart
He's just a stupid puppet taking orders on his cell phone
From the same people that sabotaged Senator Wellstone
The military industry got it poppin' and lockin'
Looking for a way to justify the Wolfowitz Doctrine
And as a matter of fact, Rumsfeld, now that I think back
Without 9/11, you couldn't have a war in Iraq
Or a Defense budget of world conquest proportions
Kill freedom of speech and revoke the right to abortions
Tax cut extortion, a blessing to the wealthy and wicked
But you still have to answer to the Armageddon you scripted
And Dick Cheney, you #in leech, tell them your plans
About building your pipelines through Afghanistan
And how Israeli troops trained the Taliban in Pakistan
You might have them house niggaz fooled, but I understand
Colonialism is sponsored by corporations
That's why Halliburton gets paid to rebuild nations
Tell me the truth, I don't scare into paralysis
I know the CIA saw Bin Laden on dialysis
In '98 when he was Top Ten for the FBI
Government ties is really why the Government lies
Read it yourself instead of asking the Government why
'Cuz then the Cause of Death will cause the propaganda to die..

[Man talking]
He is scheduled for 60 Minutes next.
He is going on French, Italian, Japanese television.
People everywhere are starting to listen to him.
It's embarassing.

You can't forget Muse. No band is more alien/apocalyptically inclined than them. Hell, they even have a song called 'Apocalypse Now', and one called 'Rule by Secrecy' (following the Jim Marrs book title) and another song with the chorus 'When the Zetas fill the skies, will our leaders tell us why'.

Freaky, considering I've never heard of Immortal Technique I wouldn't exactly call them popular. I wouldn't really consider Tool popular either, but most people have heard of them so I guess that's okay.

Some good ones about NWO and end of the world are from A Perfect Circle:

Pet: (Protest song against Bush and the war in Iraq)

Don't fret precious I'm here, step away from the window
Go back to sleep

Lay your head down child
I won't let the boogeyman come

Counting bodies like sheep
To the rhythm of the war drums

Pay no mind to the rabble
Pay no mind to the rabble

Head down, go to sleep
To the rhythm of the war drums

Pay no mind what other voices say
They don't care about you, like I do, like I do
Safe from pain and truth and choice and other poison devils,
See, they don't give a f**k about you, like I do.

Just stay with me, safe and ignorant,
Go back to sleep
Go back to sleep

Lay your head down child
I won't let the boogeyman come
Count the bodies like sheep
To the rhythm of the war drums

Pay no mind to the rabble
Pay no mind to the rabble

Head down, go to sleep to the rhythm of the war drums

I'll be the one to protect you from
Your enemies and all your demons

I'll be the one to protect you from
A will to survive and a voice of reason

I'll be the one to protect you from
Your enemies and your choices son
They're one in the same
I must isolate you
Isolate and save you from yourself

Swayin to the rhythm of the new world order and
Count the bodies like sheep to the rhythm of the war drums

The boogeymen are coming
The boogeymen are coming

Keep your head down, go to sleep, to the rhythm of a war drums

Stay with me
Safe and ignorant
Just stay with me
Hold you and protect you from the other ones
The evil ones
Don't love you son,
Go back to sleep

Music is very much a part of how to define a society. Some of the music that kids listen to these days scares me. The screaming type you know? It is so perfect for rage and torture. I guess maybe I am old and old people have said the same for generations.I personally like any type of music that makes me feel deeply. Reggae, blues, rock, some country, and I also love some classical, hawaiian, many instumentals and lots of new age.

metal should not scare you. theres only a handfull of death metal bands with violent lyrics. deicide is one.

this is coming from a metal fan. bought my first metallica cd when i was 8. ive been listening to metal for a while, and im not violent.

rap is what u need 2 worry about
