Dick Clark, the legendary TV personality and host of New Year's Rockin' Eve, died at the age of 82 from heart attack early Wednesday morning.

Sources close to the matter told TMZ that the iconic host had been in St. John's Hospital in Los Angeles undergoing an outpatient procedure on Tuesday night. He reportedly suffered a massive heart attack following the procedure. Attempts to resuscitate him failed.

Clark was well known for his charismatic personality and hosting several very successful TV shows including American Bandstand and Dick Clark's New Year's Rockin' Eve. He appeared on ABC's New Year's Rockin Eve in 2011 for a brief moment just minutes before the ball dropped in Times Square.

Since Dick Clark has become synonymous with a New Years' celebration for many, several people on Twitter have begun to doubt whether 2013 will ever come. Some have gone a step further: They say that the Mayans were right and that there will never be a New Years' Day again.

Here's a small collection of Twitter users who think the end of the world is nigh:
