  18. The End by The Autumns 
While putting this together, a story formed and in my head this became the soundtrack to my future (and obviously imaginary) zombie movie.

It's a classic tale about a group of friends who are skeptical about the impending, predicted apocalypse. Then some kind of catastrophic event occurs and everyone freaks out. They try to get to safety and find shelter, but as a result of the astroid that hit the Earth, or the nuclear bombs or whatever, a ZOMBIE EPIDEMIC STRIKES. One of the friends in the group gets infected and they have to kill them. There's also a sweet little secondary love story that's apparent in the last five songs of the playlist, but everybody dies anyway.

The end.


*Yes, I could have used Zombie by The Cranberries, but that was too easy. And Ke$ha makes me laugh, so deal with it.
