I need some tunes(either positive or dark) to soundtrack the unfolding doom and gloom threads of the economic crisis. I can only think of a few at the moment. What have you guys got.
Here are some that got me started.
R.E.M.- End of the World(as we know it)
Doors- The End
Metallica- Master of Puppets.
Tool- Aenima
T.I.S.M- All Ordinaries Index.
Midnight Oil- Stand in Line
PennyWise- Something to Live for, The Western World
Screaming Jets- Fat Rich @#$%
Cake's version of I Will Survive

the clash - armageddon time
Roger Waters - amused to death
some lyrics:
We watched the tragedy unfold
We did as we were told
We bought and sold
It was the greatest show on earth
But then it was over
We oohed and aahed
We drove our racing cars
We ate our last few jars of caviar
And somewhere out there in the stars
A keen-eyed look-out
Spied a flickering light
Our last hurrah
And when they found our shadows
Groups 'round the TV sets
They ran down every lead
They repeated every test
They checked out all the data in their lists
And then the alien anthropologists
Admitted they were still perplexed
But on eliminating every other reason
For our sad demise
They logged the only explanation left
This species has amused itself to death
No tears to cry
No feelings left
This species has amused itself to death
Amused itself to death

(the whole disc is awesome and could serve as the soundtrack to our demise, right down to Marv Albert doing play by play for the final battle)

Billy Bragg - Help Save The Youth Of America
Pink Floyd - Money (might as well detail what this is all about).
The Art Of Noise - A Time To Fear
Blue Oyster Cult - Don't Fear The Reaper

I'm thinking Eve of Destruction, written by PF Sloan and sung by several, most memorable to me, Barry McGuire. After the Goldrush by Neil Young.

Edit: sorry, I misread the topic. It was supposed to be economic doom, and not nuclear apocalypse. I'll see if I can come up with something else instead...

edit 2; to add:

This one is in swedish, see the english translation and notes in the link. Some parts fit to the economic crisis. Here's a bit:

Note how our shadow, note Movitz mon frére,
[how] it’s being enveloped by darkness.
How the gold and Tyrian cloth, in that shovel there
are transformed into gravel and tatters.
Charon waves from his roaring river
and then, three times, the gravedigger himself [waves],
never again will you squeeze your grape.
Therefore, Movitz, come help me arch
a gravestone over our sister.

Lyrics (with english translation) - (Note How Our Shadow)

“Bommen” means a tax collection gate, where road taxes were collected


“Purpur” refers to cloth dyed Tyrian Purple, i.e. the most expensive type of cloth imaginable. The “shovel” is the gravedigger’s shovel.


“Lustiga lag” would refer to a jovial party or gathering, but “lag” can also have a connotation of being pickled in alcohol, which would make sense for this drunken bunch! The song ends with a bittersweet line that indicates the end of their fun times together, and yet then concludes with an exhortation to go on with the drinking.

Imperiet - Märk hur vår skugga

Isis- Wrists of Kings

Now our blood
Travels though the
veins of our

It bursts forth them
Boiling black
clouds from the wrists of kings

The shadow
Lengthens as
time draws on its tendrils

Creep into mythic cracks
blending with the light of day

We see it
Now Before us
But even so we cannot
Read the lies between the lines

Bring them nothing
They have
Made it's way
The nights

Halford - Golgotha

Golgotha, rise up from your tomb
Devil's had a taste of holy water
Lost children need your guiding hand
Take them through the fire of the promised land

Now we've come together
We're all waiting for a sign
If it takes forever
We believe in the divine

Grand Canyon, source of all our dreams
Protected from a billion years of evil
Golden fire - thunder all around
Covenants will cover up you sinners

Now we've come together
We're all waiting for a sign
If it takes forever
We believe in the divine

Overcoming tyranny to desecrate the entity - satanical
Laying waste this sick disease
That crippled, maimed, feel to our knees - like Jericho

Pile of skulls crunched under foot
Torched remains are crying out - satanical
Rising up to purge and scourge the killing of our paradise - like Jericho


Now we've come together
We're all waiting for a sign
If it takes forever
We believe in the divine

Black Sabbath - Children of the Grave

Revolution in their minds - the children start to march
Against the world in which they have to live
and all the hate that's in their hearts
They're tired of being pushed around
and told just what to do
They'll fight the world until they've won
and love comes flowing through

Children of tomorrow live in the tears that fall today
Will the sun rise up tomorrow bringing peace in any way?
Must the world live in the shadow of atomic fear?
Can they win the fight for peace or will they disappear?

So you children of the world,
listen to what I say
If you want a better place to live in
spread the words today
Show the world that love is still alive
you must be brave
Or you children of today are
Children of the Grave, Yeah

Apocalypse Please - Muse

Apocalypse Please - Lyrics

declare this an emergency
come on and spread a sense of urgency
and pull us through
and pull us through
and this is the end
this is the end of the world

it's time we saw a miracle
come on it's time for something biblical
to pull us through
and pull us through
and this is the end
this is the end of the world

proclaim eternal victory
come on and change the course of history
and pull us through
and pull us through
and this is the end
this is the end of the world

Maybe I should include Ruled By Secrecy from the Absolution album to go with your post. Nice.

reply to post by atlasastro probably should

They are pretty conspiratorial, and have many good songs.

They are like a UFO/NWO version of RATM (political)or something...

Smashing Pumpkins -Tales of a Scorched Earth

This song is very hard, heavy and dark
it kind of make you feel
how doomsday
would be.
