5 Musicians That Shockingly Predicted Major Events

The Simpsons isn’t the only thing that can predict the future. Some of your favorite musicians have foretold several incidents from around the world. These five musical artists managed to predict some trippy things. There’s nothing stopping people from dissecting more of their tunes for more possible hints.

A Change Is Coming

In 1969, Jimi Hendrix predicted climate change with the song, “Up from the Skies.” The singer tells the story of an alien that’s simply shocked at how mankind is destroying Earth. During the song, he sings, “Maybe it’s just a change of climate/Well, I can dig it.”

Pay To Get In

Years before the Internet became a part of our lives, David Bowie used it to his advantage. In 1996, he released the first ever downloadable single with “Telling Lies.” Two years later, he unveiled his own BowieNet. This would be a monthly paid service that allowed people to use the Internet and obtain exclusive content. Monthly services are now a major part of the Internet today.

Foreseeing A National Tragedy

In early 2001, Wilco set out to record their fourth studio album Yankee Hotel Foxtrot. The album is filled with songs about tragedy (“Ashes of American Flags”) and war (“War on War”). The song “Jesus, Etc.” unleashes the chorus of “Tall buildings shake/Voices escape singing sad, sad songs.” Unfortunately, this album was released around the tragedy of 9/11.

Rise Of The Machines

Before his death, The Doors‘ singer Jim Morrison predicted the rise of electronic music. In a 1969 interview with Rolling Stone, he stated, “I can see a lone artist with a lot of tapes and electrical … like an extension of the Moog synthesizer— a keyboard with the complexity and richness of a whole orchestra, y’know?” Skrillex famously sampled Morrison’s electronic talk in his 2012 collaboration with The Doors titled “Breakn’ a Sweat.”

At Your Convenience

There’s no musician quite as complex as Frank Zappa. Tired of CD and vinyl, the late artist gave a suggestion on the next big music distribution craze. In his 1989 autobiography, he came up with the idea of digital services like Spotify and iTunes. “We propose to acquire the rights to digitally duplicate and store THE BEST of every record company’s difficult-to-move Quality Catalog Items [QCI], store them in a central processing location, and have them accessible by phone or cable TV, directly patchable into the user’s home-taping appliances,” he stated.
