End of the century
Misery, can it be
Chaos, who's the boss
Suffer a great loss
Man woman child
No longer exist
Only the good ones will be missed
Life, love, cherish it all
Who will be left to conquer it all
The end is coming
Don't start running
There's nowhere to run
Don't grab a gun
All over the land, hear this roar
No one know what's in store
Look for the star, he's on his way
No one knows what's in store
Love your self and all around
In a blink of an eye
You won't hear a sound
Your heart is pounding at rapid speed
Man will always feel the need for greed

Let's go for it
Now you can't miss
Beware because the end is here

The sky is falling
Eyes are bawling
You had your chance
To make your stance
Love is a must
Life don't lust
Not time to fuss
People start to cuss
Cry out, who's going to care
Have no doubt, have no fear
Believe in me I'll show you the way

Some people think the year 2G
Is so scary, let's wait and see
The world will shut down, most won't admit
People go crazy, people catch fits
Fire breaks out
One way to stop
Play hip hop non stop stop
Remember these words
And what I said
You just might wake up brain dead

The feeling (feeling)
Is amazing (is amazing)
Oh boy, I want you (come on and get me)

Some just say the world is changing
Many people will agree
Many changes we are seeing
I just say...
It's the end...
It's the end...
It's the end of the century

Music Comment

The original song was made by Beethoven, the exciting beat is the best!

Song Production Information

Actually, until about a year and a half ago, there was something I disliked about Eurobeat songs.
Well, until I listened to his BRILLIANT 2U....
Despite the Euro style of his work, it has a very thick essence of club music, and provides an impression like flashy and passive techno.
It can be said that his big influence has allowed the IIDX series to also expand the Euro sound, including tie-ups with dance compilations.
Today, NAOKI gave us his comments.
Everyone, please spend a wonderful end of the century with this song.


As a IIDX fan, my dream came true.
I have been asked by dj TAKA, whom I respect very much, to include three of my upper songs in IIDX 3rd style, and even a NAOKI course was prepared.
A hidden song with an end of the century VIBE, it seems END OF THE CENTURY has also been released, so I would like for everyone to play it by all means and burst with adrenaline!

It's an exciting hyper song appropriate for the end of the century, created as a result of borrowing the power of the great Beethoven's music and fusing it with modern musical culture. It's a suitable song for the end of the year, so by all means, I want you to play this song then.

You have unlocked the song "END OF THE CENTURY" by NO.9. Debuting on Dance Dance Revolution KONAMIX, "END OF THE CENTURY" is a speed rave remake of Ludwig Van Beethoven's final symphony "Symphony No.9 in D Minor" which was originally written and completed by the famous German composer in 1824.

Video Production Information


When I knew that NAOKI would provide us with three Eurobeat-styled dance music tracks including DYNAMITE RAVE, CAN'T STOP FALLIN' IN LOVE, and this END OF THE CENTURY, I remember every team member feeling confident (and almost too excited) by the success of 3rd style.

As mentioned in dj TAKA's above comment, other team members also had some biases for their personal music genre preferences, so the push to include Eurobeat was previously weak.
However, since BRILLIANT 2U was included in substream, I was infatuated with the overwhelming, bright, energetic and powerful speed contained in Eurobeat, and furthermore, seeing its popularity with players at the location test, it became a very important genre for song selection during the 3rd style production.

I, for one, have become a "Eurobeat" fan, putting other genres aside in my personal preferences.
Production was difficult in various ways, but I'm grateful that I managed to somehow run with NAOKI's music, and the gift of energy released from the "Eurobeat" sound.
