Play us out
In recent years, North Korea has made some serious threats to the United States. With leader Kim Jong Un vowing to NEVER stop stockpiling nuclear weapons, and the recent political climate the United States in enduring, it’s imperative that U.S. citizens are prepared. So put away your voodoo tactical mojo apocalypse survival kit, because the only thing you’ll be needing is a device to play music on. Here are the top 10 songs to listen to when North Korea finally drops ‘da bomb.
Stressed Out- Twenty One Pilots
Inevitably, when North Korea takes its steps to dropping a bomb on us, the first thing we are going to be is stressed out. There’s no doubt we’ll all feel a little anxious as we see our impending death falling straight from the sky. As we scramble to be near our loved ones (people and animals alike), make sure you’re not going through this time of anxiety alone.
Helps Our Souls- NIHILS
Need I say more?
The chorus rings in with a charming, “Help our souls tonight / We are losing, losing this fight. We are, indeed, losing this fight tonight.” The next line singing “Help our souls tonight / Is there no one on our side.” Ughhhhhh, there’s gotta be someone?
Feels Like We Only Go Backwards- Tame Impala
North Korea believes our current president has “lit the wick of war” and vows “a hail of fire.”
Next, we enter the stage of delusion.
“Walking on a Dream” by Empire of the Sun and “Time to Pretend” by MGMT.
These airy and magical undertones will calm our breathing rate and slowly help us enter a state of euphoria (or that could just be the gas radiation from the giant ball of fire plowing through our stratosphere…)
Love Your Friends, Die Laughing- Man Overboard
Grab hold of your friends, kiss the person next to and just “Love Your Friends, Die Laughing” (you should be laughing at this point – the radiation has definitely gotten to your head – you may even believe that the orange thing flying through the sky is just a cheeseball).
Under Cover of Darkness- The Strokes
And when it’s all over, and the United States is scourged and burnt, the only sound that will be heard is Justin Bieber’s, “One Time.”
