"It's The End Of The World As We Know It (And I Feel Fine)" is a song by the American rock band R.E.M., which first appeared on their 1987 album Document. It is played at the beginning of Independence Day during the S.E.T.I. scene, moments before the signal is detected.

The song "Everybody Wants To Rule The World" by Tears for Fears was originally picked to be featured during this scene.
