Bob Dylan – Let Me Die In My Footsteps

Bob Dylan sang about the Cold War back in 1963. Not totally accepting that the world would end from nuclear destruction, he nonetheless poetically sang about preferring to sleep (and die) in a meadow rather than hide in a fallout shelter.

In the 1950s, fallout shelters, often underground, were built to avoid coming into contact with and to provide protection from “fallout.” This is the radioactive material that would be produced from nuclear explosions.
