Everybody wants to rule the end of the world and I feel fine.  
Ah, world domination and the end of human civilization as we have known it. Is there anything more satisfying? Answer: yes. Yes, there is, and it is a music source with just two simple songs activated at just the right moment.

As the Doomsday device is prepared and all is in readiness, the Overlord cues the music. As Tears for Fears' "Everybody Wants to Rule the World" comes to its final strains, the button is pushed, or the command code is given, or the spell that summons Demogorgon is cast or what have you, "The End" begins and the music crossfades into REM's "It's the End of the World As We Know It (and I Feel Fine)."

Now that is satisfaction.

Well, every fiendish overlord will use his or her own preferred soundtrack, naturally. I suspect Genghis Khan's involved horn and drum. I wonder if Napoleon favored the fife? Or do you think he'd be more a timpani man?

I'm guessing if Napoleon were ever a timpani man, Tchaikovsky ruined it for him.
