Put your media player of choice on shuffle.
The first song is the overall theme for the Apocalypse.
The second song is the one that plays during your first zombie kill.
The third song plays while you're getting chased by a Horde.
The fourth song plays while you're being forced to kill your loved one.
The fifth song plays when you find your new love interest.
The sixth song plays when you make your final stand.
The seventh song plays when you (think you) make it through it all.
The eighth song plays when you discover a bite mark on you.

Overall Theme: Stromkern - The City
Creepy instrumental with samples about trying to make it home without dying or finding everyone dead. Main repeated sample: "This goddamn city..." So far, so fitting.

First Kill: PIG - The Fountain of Miracles
Like every other PIG song, brutal and violent and angry. Talks about a group, so I'm guessing the first fight caught us unawares, and we murdered our way through a crowd. Initial plans mostly worked out. Clearly nothing good will come of this.

Being Chased: Rosetta Stone - Nothing
At this point I begin to wonder about my own music collection. Considering the song is about getting the better of someone, and the refrain repeatedly says "you're touching on nothing..." I'm guessing this is one of those chase scenes where it cuts between two groups, and in the end, group B finds out they were a glorified distraction. I am not a nice person in the zombpocalypse.

Killing a Loved One: Sisters of Mercy - When You Don't See Me
Continuing you the trend of me not being a good person. This song sounds like we found out one of our survivors was bitten. There's arguments about what that means, if they're going to turn, or if that's just us being too genre savvy. The argument goes toward murdering them, and before it can go much further, shooting them to end it. Harsh, and likely further damaging to morale. I am probably being plotted against by now.

New Love Interest: The Prodigy - Voodoo People
...I really cannot wrap my head around this song as anything related to a love interest, unless you're trying to tell me I'm a psychotic murderer by this point, or something. Maybe it's hatesex? Maybe it's just a relationship based on mutual fondness for murder of undead? One thing is for certain: I make a terrible protagonist.

Final Stand: Apoptygma Berzerk - Soultaker
By this point, the plan to get out of the city has been hatched. The cast is frantically trying to get things working, an escape vehicle. The city is probably going to be nuked. This scene probably cost as much as the rest of the film to shoot.

Fake-Out Ending: Interlace - Soul of a New Machine
Granted, considering the opening lines of the song are "Every passion/Demands a sacrifice" that isn't much of a fake-out ending. I'm guessing whatever we were going for, some kind of plane or train or bus or other vehicle's working. This is the moment of catching our breath and whatnot right before leaping on-board, as the hordes of undead begin to grow in numbers, drawn by the sound.

Discovering the Bite: Koji Kikkawa - Nobody's Perfect
And here I thought I was going to get away with doing a music meme and iTunes on random without it outing me as a giant goddamn nerd. Shows what I know.

As the cast barrels onto the mcguffin, I'm guessing this is when I either get bit, or realize I got bit. And considering what happened to the last guy, there's only one solution to that: close the door in front of me, turn around, and commit suicide by zombie. Sure, I might be a vicious murderer who's not shown anyone an ounce of sympathy, but, hell. I'm not a hypocrite.
