Playlist: Zombie Apocalypse


Practically any event, time period, or emotion has an unofficial soundtrack attached to it.  That’s just how I roll, I reckon.

Well, the imminent fit-hits-the-shan, prep-like-mad Zombie Apocalypse needs a little (audio) love, too.  I’m posting this well in advance so that you can add this to your personal Prepper list so that when you have to leave in the dead of night, loaded to the max and armed to the teeth, you at least have a tape in the deck (or a CD or jump drive or iPod) loaded up and ready to go with tunes that fit the mood.

In no particular order… (maybe someday I’ll start linking these song titles to YouTube videos or something, but given the rate at which URLs change, I might or might not bother with it).
