The Perfect Song For Every Dystopian Book Ever

I’ve recently become obsessed with the band Imagine Dragons. They sing “It’s Time” from The Perks of Being a Wallflower. They have a raw edge to them that I really love, and they sing about things I care about.

So, it fits that one of their songs off their new album, Night Visions, would have a PERFECT song for basically every dystopian book ever. Check it out.

About Lisa Parkin

I'm a hardcore lover of young adult fiction and have been reviewing books since 2011. Other interests include Downton Abbey, heat lightning storms, Harry Potter land and (begrudingly) one orange tabby.
  • Love the industrial feel to the song. VERY dystopian!

  • This could be used as a soundtrack for the game Dishonored – a steampunk dystopia.

    As for what songs I think fit a genre, fantasy and symphonic metal are perfect for one another, and many symphonic metal songs are based on fantasy novels.

    I don’t know… Because Human by Christina Perri seems to fit my Dystopian Novel perfectly!
