As we all now know, the sunrise of December 21, 2012 came and went without apocalyptic incident. To commemorate the supposed end-of-days, our friends over at Pigeons & Planes compiled a list of the 15 greatest songs about the end of the world.

R.E.M.’s “It’s the End of the World As We Know It” made the list of course, alongside “every album Busta Rhymes released before 2000” and Prince’s “1999” in the top spot. Check out those and the rest of the list via the link below.
