I fully concur with your approval of the soundtrack. Cash's
When The Man Comes Around is sort of the evangelical Christian
counterpart to Dylan's comparably apocalyptic A Hard Rain's A-
Gonna Fall, though the latter's inspiration is not Scripture
but the medieval murder ballad Lord Randal.

But as to your last sentence, UFOs may or may not be fond of
electrical storms, but we do know beyond any doubt that
spectacular, even extraordinary, electrical phenomena -
including manifestations of ball lightning - appear in those
conditions. Where luminous anomalies in electrical storms are
concerned, I think it's wise to look to meteorological
explanations before jumping to other conclusions.
