Disturbed Frontman David Draiman Picks His Favorite Song about the Apocalypse

Since tomorrow is Judgement Day and a massive earthquake will throw open all the graves, the dead will rise, Christ will return to earth, and within five months, all of humanity will have been wiped away–at least according to some dude Harold Camping–we thought we’d ask some of our favorite rockers to pick their favorite songs or albums about the apocalypse before it’s too late. Here’s what David Draiman of Disturbed responded with:

“I like that Tool song ‘Ænema.’ That, to me, has become the quintessential apocalypse song. It totally brings forth images of the great flood and devastation and earthquakes. I love the portrait that Maynard paints with his imagery in that song.”

    Great Musician, great taste in music. I approve, so hard.

    I think he meant Aenima, at least that’s what I think of. Forty Six and 2 doesn’t remind me of the end times, but it’s still a pretty dang awesome song, don’t get me wrong. 😀

     I do like how he chose a Tool song, but like Brett said, he meant Ænema, hence the fact that he mentions “floods” and “earthquakes” (learn to swim, Arizona Bay, Some say a comet will fall from the sky, etc.)

      The song is about us reaching a state of evolution at which the body would have two more [46] total chromosomes. We currently have 44 & 2 chromosomes
