Mine would be;

Nirvana - Where Did You Sleep Last Night?
Catatonia - Strange Glue
Queen - Dont Stop Me Now (just cos it wud be funny)

total metalhead
Ape Dos Mil by Glassjaw
Good Riddance (Time of Your Life) by Greenday
and Digital Bath by Deftones (just cos its my favorite song)

but saying that i suppose by the time i die i prolly would have changed my mind.....

Dagons Blade
"Fade To Black" by Metallica
"Open Casket" by Death
"Empty Words"-by Death
(you have to be in a really morbid mood for these last two)

And if you want to get really medieval, "Mourner's Lament" by Candlemass. This is a really heady song that is very depressing but beautiful in a twisted way.

Very simple : what three songs would you like to be played on your funeral ? My choice is :


- Hallelujah - the Jeff Buckley version

- In my life - Johnny Cash

- Summer - Joe Hisaishi



(At first, I also wanted to choose The Road to Hell from Chris Rea, but on second though, not so a great idea.)

Alpha Centauri
Collapse the Light into Earth by Porcupine Tree springs to mind, a bit depressing, though.

Maybe Hey Jupiter by Tori Amos.
