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.
Oh yeah, this is one of my favourite genres too, and Muse’s Uprising is definitely a good choice for this playlist. Thanks for sharing!
