* The song "Wasteland" by Atargatis describes how, after having ruined Earth reducing it to a dry wasteland, humans become wretched, naked, creatures of knotty limbs looking in vain for fertile land. Overlaps with GaiasVengeance, as Mother Nature itself wants them to give up and leave Nature heal itself.

* Music/{{Muse}}'s music video for "Sing For Absolution" features a spaceflight to retrieve a massive capsule containing thousands of cryogenically frozen people and take them to Earth. Problem is, when they get there, Earth is an unrecognisable, let alone uninhabitable wasteland akin to the surface of Mars, and it looks like it has been that way for some time. The only things that let the viewer know it is Earth are Big Ben and what remains of a bridge.
* Music/MasakiYamada's EZO song ''Fire Fire'' is the world after a nuclear holocaust.



* The Postal Service song "We Will Become Silhouettes" seems to be set in the aftermath of nuclear destruction. The titular silhouettes are a reference to the ghostly images of people that were left behind on walls after [[http://i3.photobucket.com/albums/y95/armyyouhave/Hiroshima_Shadow.jpg the nuclear bomb drops on Hiroshima and Nagasaki]]. In a classic example of LyricalDissonance, the song sounds like a normal peppy, Postal Service electro-pop love song.
* Music/BlackSabbath's song "Electric Funeral" from ''Music/{{Paranoid}}'' portrays a struggle for survival on a post-nuclear Earth.
* Music/EdgeOfSanity's song "Crimson" takes place in a post-apocalyptic Earth where humans can no longer breed.
* Music/ElectricWizard has a song called "The Sun has Turned to Black" which describes the very end of humanity by unknown means.
* Music/RunningWild's song "Straight to Hell" is about bunch of survivors trying survive in post-apocalyptic world and "Land of Ice" is about TimeTravel to a future where the world is caught on nuclear winter.
* The 1994 anime ''Rusty Nail'' PV for Music/XJapan combines this trope with an AlienInvasion - the band members' animated avatars all play important roles in it - Toshi's character (armed with the phallic LanceOfLonginus no less) and Pata's are part of LaResistance, hide's is TheQuisling / SlaveMook with the invading aliens due to a HypnoTrinket he wears, and Yoshiki's is CrystalDragonJesus ''and'' the only one who can overcome the HypnoTrinket controlling hide's - by throwing roses at it.
* Music/JudasPriest's "Cathedral Spires" from ''Jugulator'' is about mankind in post-apocalyptic world waiting to die in the titular structure.
* Music/SteelyDan's [[http://www.steelydan.com/lyrcountdown.html#track8 King of the World]], not very clear, but can be interpreted as such.

* Music/{{Stereolab}}'s "One Small Step"
-->From the sky would fall an incessant rain of bombs
-->We had nowhere to go but retreat underground
-->Our ground had been peppered with loads of mines
-->Growing our food was a risk at any time



* Music/{{Moby}} said his "South Side" song is about a post-apoc world:
-->Here we are now going to the south side\\
I pick up my friends and we hope we won't die\\
Ride at night, ride through heaven and hell\\
Come back and feel so well
* Music/INomadi and Francesco Guccini, "Noi non ci saremo" ("We won't be there"), spends only the first verse on the presumably thermonuclear extinction of mankind; the rest of the song is bleakly optimistic (life recovers, and Earth will be better without us). A far cry from the juvenile destruction porn of some heavy metal bands.

* The Music/ImagineDragons song "Radioactive" alludes to a nuclear apocalypse. The music video for "It's Time" shows the band traversing a desolate wasteland (which somewhat resembles San Francisco).
** This forms setting for Music/LindseyStirling and Music/{{Pentatonix}}'s collaborative cover of "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aE2GCa-_nyU Radioactive]]". The video is filmed around some old graffitied buildings and junk in the middle of a desert, and the desolate feeling is enhanced by the heightened contrast in the video.
* ''Music/AkikoShikata'''s song ''Replicare'' is about someone wandering in a destroyed world, condemned to relive eternally the fall of mankind in his mind and be tormented by the cries of despair of the dead. The Apocalypse itself is narrated between the verses in [[OminousLatinChanting Ominous Italian Chanting]].
-->Unable to catch any of the lamentations that pour down\\
I stand there, petrified\\
The smashed up world scatters in the middle of silence\\
As blue flames overwhelm it\\
Darkness is filled by an inescapable nightmare\\
Disturbing and distorting my lost mind\\
How long will I continue to dream, now that the future is gone?
