If you follow the Mayan calendar, you're no doubt preparing for the end of the world on December 21. While conventional wisdom says you'll make it until Christmas, we've assembled a soundtrack of Bay Area jams to play just in case Friday is our last on Earth:
• Starship - "We Built This City"
Grace Slick and company conjure up the power of song with this unforgettable song, but will it be enough to stop the destruction of all humankind?
• Journey - "Don't Stop Believin'"
Time to reclaim this anthem back from Giants fans and watchers of The Sopranos and repurpose it for keeping us all alive.
• MC Hammer - "Pray"
Before he became an actual TV preacher for a time, Hammer sampled Prince's "When Doves Cry" on this inspirational rap.
• Digital Underground - "Doowutchyalike"
Once the prayers have been set, it's time to let loose with the ultimate Bay Area party rap.
• Hunx and His Punx - "The Last Time"
Seth Bogart and his sassy ladies are an essential addition to this final spin.
• Santana - "Day of Celebration"
Carlos Santana's epic guitar is something everyone would want to hear just one last time.
• Romeo Void - "Never Say Never"
This saucy and cheeky one-hit wonder sounded like an apocalyptic must even when it came out three decades ago.
• Green Day - "Last Night on Earth"
Billie Joe Armstrong and company has had a sense of impending finality for a minute, perfectly encapsulated on this doomsday stunner.
• Metallica - "Enter Sandman"
The band probably didn't imagine this to be an end of the world soother, but there's strange comfort to be found in this harsh classic.
• Thee Oh Sees - "Carol Ann"
Go into the soft-focused light, dear listeners. Go into the light.
