Bookish Playlist: Dystopian

It’s time for another book themed playlist! Today I will be focusing on a genre: dystopian. AKA a futuristic society where the government rules with a heavy hand and there is injustice. It’s one of my favorite sub-genres.

I’m a Wanted Man-Royal Deluxe

-This song has Rowan Damisch energy from Scythe

Let Me Live/Let Me Die by Des Rocs

-This song has The Maze Runner energy

Ready Set Let’s Go by Sam Tinnesz

-This song emulates The Hunger Games

Legendary by Welshly Arms

-I think this song could be used to describe Divergent

Bury Me Face Down by Grandson

-Have you read the Matched trilogy?

New Blood by Zayde Wolf

-What about the Delirium trilogy?

Monsters by Ruelle

-This song seems to call to the classics like 1984 and Brave New World

Natural by Imagine Dragons

-The perfect song to describe how the societies are leeching off weary souls, like in The Handmaid’s Tale

Throne by Bring Me the Horizon

-A great song for the revolution!

Pompeii by Bastille

-for the wreckage of the city, of the post-apocalyptic world

Radioactive by Imagine Dragons

-in case we are in a nuclear wasteland

Edge of a Revolution by Nickelback

-need I say more?

Centuries by Fall Out Boy

-for the heroes and anti-heroes

Empty Gold by Halsey

-dystopian feel, especially the imagery

Uprising by Muse

-A lot of dystopias deal with uprisings and revolutions’. It’s inevitable.

And for fun let’s add a couple songs that protested the tyranny of today:

Holiday by Green Day

Anarchy in the UK by The Sex Pistols

Sunday Bloody Sunday by U2

Born in the USA by Bruce Springsteen

Fight the Power by Public Enemy

Enjoy your dystopian reads and your dystopian music! Here’s the link to my Spotify playlist.
