Ten Book Theme Songs - Dystopian Edition

Hey guys! Well... I was trying to decide to come up with a post subject and I brainstormed a few ideas and one that really stood out to me was 'Book Theme Songs', taking ten books and picking theme songs for them. So I decided I could do different genre/subject editions, so we're starting off with...
Ten Dystopian Theme Songs

10. The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins: 'The Cave' by Mumford and Sons

9. Divergent by Veronica Roth: 'Radioactive' by Imagine Dragons

8. Cinder by Marissa Meyer: 'Human' by The Killers

7. Under the Never Sky by Veronica Rossi: 'How Far We've Come' by Matchbox Twenty

6. Possession by Elana Johnson: 'It Doesn't Mean A Thing' by The Airborne Toxic Event
