-

Need something to listen to while you chow down on a hearty meal of tinned veggies and pasta in your cocoon of self-isolation? Here is our coronavirus quarantine playlist for you to rock out to while waiting for the pandemic to pass.

1. R.E.M. – It’s the End of the World as We Know It

Things will never be the same after the Coronavirus. Its already taken away half-a-dozen gigs that I will never get back! 

2. Billy Joel – We Didn’t Start the Fire

China’s mishandling of meat might have started this particular fire but we’re all at risk now!

3. King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard – Superbug

From the appropriately named album, Infest the Rats’ Nest, Superbug is THE song for the coronavirus generation. SUPERBUG!!!

4. Flupandemic – Flying Fish Sailors

And to lift your mood a little, here is jolly folk song about a flu pandemic from another era.

5. Disturbed – Down with the Sickness

This one goes out to all the misanthropes out there who have been waiting for a disaster of this kind to smite humanity.

6. Ben Lee – Catch my Disease

Ben Lee wants to give you his coronavirus, baby. I wouldn’t go within 10 feet of this guy, corona or no corona…

7. Alice in Chains – Sickman

We’re all getting sick, man.

8. The Ramones – I Wanna Be Well

The Ramones song, I Wanna Be Well, captures the hopeful desperation we are all feeling to remain healthy during this period of uncertainty.

9. Beastie Boys – Time to Get Ill

Say, what’s the time? Its time to get ill.

10. Slayer – Epidemic

“Epidemic, permanent disease” Welcome to 2020 people. Its gonna be a good year.


Still, the coronavirus does offer some advantages…

On a serious note, please do take the advice of health care professionals to help slow the spread of the coronavirus. And remember to wash your hands! Stay safe, friends.
