Well, let's start with a confession. If we're talking vehicles that will eventually drive me into death's warming embrace, a super volcano is the polar opposite of what I'm looking for. Don't get me wrong, on the surface it seems great, because at least it will almost certainly kill every single one of us. I definitely don't want to suffer an eternity's worth of afterlife knowing people are still back on Earth doing fun shit without me. The problem is how it kills you.
Slowly, that's how. If a super volcano erupts and you're lucky enough to be in the immediate area, this is as acceptable of a fate as any. You'll be destroyed instantly. It will be great.

For everyone else, though, it's probably just going to trigger another ice age. All of the ash and other assorted debris it fires off into the atmosphere just sort of collects there for untold numbers of years and blocks out the sun. The climate changes drastically, to the point that life on Earth is no longer sustainable, and we all die.
You wouldn't want to live here anyway.
That's cool, but who wants to wait for all that shit? An ice age? So, what, we all freeze to death? We run out of food and starve? That's going to take weeks, at the very least. Possibly months. It's like getting an invitation to the end of the world. Who wants to have to look forward to something like that? Huge bummer, I bet.
Also, I probably could have just put all of that in the intro. Now, let's talk about good ways to die.
