Revelation 6 is usually where Presbyterians get off the roller coaster and heavy metal bands get on. What could possibly be encouraging about the four horsemen of the apocalypse?

Music Today: Johnny Cash, 'When the Man Comes Around.' Recorded on his last album before his death, the man in black has some good questions - and answers! - for us preparing for the day of judgment.
Bob Dylan - 'A Hard Rain's Gonna Fall.' Written when he was just 21(!), I think this is Dylan's best early masterpiece. The video ties the lyrics only with the Vietnam war, which works, but the apocalyptic imagery can apply powerfully to today. Dylan wasn't yet a Christ-follower, but the Holy Ghost haunts this and so many other songs in his '60s work.
