Here at AUX, we’re ardent doomsday preppers. Even though we’re 99.9% sure that absolutely nothing is going to happen on December 21st, 2012, we took it upon ourselves to put together an apocalyptic playlist JUST IN CASE. Call us paranoid, but we like to err on the side of caution. It’s not like this has ever happened before, right?

Here are 15 songs that will adequately prepare you for our impending doom.

Europe – “The Final Countdown”

It would make G.O.B. proud.

R.E.M. – “It’s The End Of The World As We Know It”

Because, obviously.

Andrew W.K. – “Ready To Die”

If you’re seeking a friend for the end of the world, Andrew WK might be the best man for the job.

Notorious B.I.G. – “Ready To Die”

Also, the other “Ready To Die.”

The Rolling Stones – “Gimme Shelter”

Gimme shelter! No really, Mick Jagger, please let me come stay in your mansion.

Soundgarden – “Black Hole Sun”

Chris Cornell is the Nostradamus of grunge.

Cold – “End Of The World”

Don’t you think obscure nu-metal bands make the most fitting score for the apocalypse?

The Doors – “The End”

It’s a pretty long song, so it’ll give you an extra 11 minutes to tend to any unfinished business.

Pitbull – “Give Me Everything Tonight” feat. Ne-Yo, Afrojack, and Nayer

This song is doubly appropriate, because Pitbull becoming famous was one of the early signs of the world’s impending doom.

Jay Sean – “2012 (It Ain’t The End)” feat. Nicki Minaj

Halfway through this song, you’ll be thinking “Okay, I’m ready, let’s get this over with please.”

Britney Spears – “‘Till The World Ends”

“Keep on dancing” is the official motto of all doomsday preppers, after all.

The Postal Service – “We Will Become Silhouettes”

Leave it to the nancy-boy Ben Gibbard to romanticize a nuclear holocaust.

Boyz II Men – “End Of The Road”

This one is best experienced while dropping to your knees and thrusting your fists into the sky.

The Cranberries – “Zombie”

It’s a little-known fact that the ultimate zombie repellant is Dolores O’Riordan’s voice.

Blue Γ–yster Cult – “Don’t Fear The Reaper”

Can we all agree that when we run out of food, we’ll eat the first guy who says “this apocalypse needs more cowbell”?
