Well many videogames are set in post-apocalyptic setting, Fallout (I am not a big fan) being the most obvious. The recently released Rage is totally about the Quarantine playbook, I was nearly wondering if they had read it. ;) Two other recent titles: S.t.a.l.k.e.r. & Metro 2033.

A lest know freezing post-apocalypse movie I really like: Quintet.

Oh and you must absolutely read the manga Dragon Head! (seriously)

Wow, thank you so much for this recommendation!  There is some fantastic apocalyptica barfed forth in this movie... now I'm kinda sad my "snowpocalypse" is currently all occurring deep underground.

The graphic novel series Y: The Last Man.

Also, while not apocalyptic, I'll take any excuse to promote the HBO series the Wire as just a damn good example of everything, but especially Fronts. Every season is basically just adding a new Front to the mix, while continuing to follow the existing ones.

The Levels by Sean Cregan may not be technically be apocalyptic, being set in a part of the more-or-less modern day US, but it is in an area abandoned by law enforcement and government, and inhabited by gangs, cults, and crazies.
Also, the constant out-of-their-depthness the characters face, the multiple Fronts, etc, is all very AW.

"Waiting For the Miracle" and "The Future" by Leonard Cohen are pretty perfect apocalyptic songs. 

There's always Black Sabbath.  I just heard a Cake cover of War Pigs while listening to Pandora Radio, and I thought, oh hey, this is pretty good dark AW fodder.

The video for "I Fink U Freeky" by Die Antwoord has some apocalyptic imagery. And it's all a bit weird as well.

But yeah, dancing to techno whilst covered in dust for teh win.

"How It Ends" by Devotchka is a great AW song. It needs a more violent video, though.

Singer Song writer Richard Shindell's 'You Stay Here', very atmospheric and great great lyrics

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yji5dhjf2jI&feature=results_main&playnext=1&list=PL4BAFFAFDFBB750F4

You stay here
And I'll go look for wood
Do not fear
I'll be back soon enough
Do not let the fire die
Neither let it burn too bright

You stay here
And I'll go look for bread
And if I can
Some sugar for the kids
Dry your eyes - I'll be alright
I know where they've laid the mines

You stay here
And I'll go look for coats
There may still be
Some out on the road
We'll wash them clean with melted snow
The kids don't ever have to know

You stay here
And I'll go look for guns
I think I know
Where they've hidden some
Cause if the Tiger comes one night
We won't go without a fight

You stay here
And I'll go look for God
Not so hard
Cause I know where he's not
I will bring him back with me
Make him listen - make him see

You stay here
And I'll go look for wood
