That's a Big Twinkie: A Soundtrack to the Apocalypse

The last shipment of Hostess Twinkies was supposedly delivered last Tuesday, as Hostess indeed filed for bankruptcy. Twinkies were also linked to great destructive forces in the movie Ghostbusters.

This all falls very close to December 21, which marks the end of the Mayan Mesoamerican Long Count Calendar and is also predicted to be the date of cataclysmic events that are expected to transform the world and society as we know it. In other words, the psychokinetic Twinkie apocalypse is coming.

I am also assuming that as a Rocks Off reader, one of the first things you want in your preparation for this apocalypse is a thrilling playlist that is specially crafted for these end times and is available right here, am I right?

What differs my soundtrack from other similar Internet creations? It comes with an entire Slayer box set, which even I don't currently own. Without further ado, here is your custom-tailored soundtrack to the apocalypse.

10. The entire Soundtrack to the Apocalypse box set by Slayer
Thanks to Slayer, this just got classy!

9. "Smells Like Teen Spirit," Paul Anka
Speaking of classy, and music that may make you angry, this swingin' Nirvana cover used to be on repeat at my first job. It reminds me of the smell of apocalyptically burnt coffee beans and makes me laugh, though. An old coworker almost quit over this song, and the Internet sees it as musical blasphemy. Some claim that our world as we know it will implode if this song is played enough. It is kind of bad. Who knows?

8. "Ghostbusters," Ray Parker Jr.
In defense of the Twinkie model, this song could come in handy.
