Default Music for the end of the world

Hey guys, since I've had that recurring dream again of looking out of the window, seeing a nuclear bomb go off at a not too far distance, calmly watching the approaching wave of destruction, I'd like to ask about your playlist for the end of the world.
For me, it's pretty much just this one track so far, in endless repeat. THE CRYSTALITES - Splash Down - YouTube

Well, for me that music just has a really melancholic and fatalistic sound to it. There is actually a song that uses this instrumental (The Kingstonians - Sufferer), and it's lyrics go on about the sadness and trouble in the world that you can't do anything about, but I think that's not even necessary. It also introduces an element of self-pity that I don't like. To me, that warm yet ultimately meaningless rocksteady/reggae instrumental is what the end of the world sounds like. No pity, no judgement, just an inadvertable wave of all-conquering meaninglessness.
