The Song at the End of the World meme

Dr.K put it like this:

In Final Crisis 7, Superman finally kills Darkseid by singing a song into the newly constructed Miracle Machine. Morrison doesn't let the reader know exactly what song Superman sings, but instead leaves it up to the reader to fill in this particular gap.

What song do you think killed Darkseid?

Well, it occurred to me when I first read it that perhaps he sang, with his super-voice, the title track to Yoko Ono's Fly, as unlistenable a piece of recorded sound as I've ever heard. And I like Yoko's music, mostly.

But anyway, the next thing I thought of was this:

From, of course, R.E.M.'s "It's the End of the World as We Know It (and I Feel Fine)". Well, it seemed appropriate enough.
