"The End of the World" is a song by English rock band The Cure. It was the first single to be taken from their 2004 album The Cure.

Music video[edit]

The music video was directed by Floria Sigismondi[citation needed] and shows Smith in a house which begins to destroy itself. As he leaves the house, it becomes debris and the rest of the band find stuff from the debris. The video ends with the house rebuilding itself and Smith going back inside and plants soon grows on the floor.


"The End of the World" was the band's most successful single since 1996's "Mint Car", peaking at number 25 on the UK Singles Chart,[2] number 19 on the Billboard Hot Modern Rock Tracks chart in the United States[citation needed] and number 42 on the Irish Singles Chart.[citation needed]
