Abstract: In this paper we consider the nonexistence of global solutions of a Klein-Gordon equation of the form

$\displaystyle u_{tt}-\Delta u+m^2u=f(u),$   $\displaystyle (t,x)\in [0,T)\times\mathbb{R}^n.$  

Here $ m\neq 0$ and the nonlinear power $ f(u)$ satisfies some assumptions which will be stated later. We give a sufficient condition on the initial datum with arbitrarily high initial energy such that the solution of the above Klein-Gordon equation blows up in finite time.
