Blatantly stealing from a topic brought up on another website, I want to know what the best songs to listen to while driving are. Whether it be music to make you speed by, or music to fill up the time driving on long trips.

Here's my quick list:

Bad Habit by Offspring- When I have had a bad day and feel the need to speed, this song gets me going.

Sweet Home Alabama- Don't know why this song is great to drive to, but I always dig having the windows down and this song blazing.

Break Stuff by Limp Bizkit- Another song that is just pure madness and is sure to piss off the drivers that are stuck in traffic next to you.

Don't Know Why by Norah Jones- A recent song that is great to listen to when you are not in a hurry and just chilling out in the car.

Well, did I miss any songs?

The call is from heroism, will you accept the charges?

*I* will always remember the RFM Club!

There's a ton of them I like to hear when I'm driving.

Let the Music Do the Talking -- Aerosmith. From the little sold "Done With Mirrors" album. Also, the last album before they sobered up.

Back In The Saddle -- Aerosmith. Yes, I love Aerosmith, especially their stuff from the 70's.

Jessica -- The Allman Brothers. A fine instrumental and great for flying up I-15 on the way to Big Bear Lake.

Red Barchetta -- RUSH. A song about a Ferarri and another great one for the trip up I-15. Got pulled over once listening to this one.

Riding the Storm Out -- REO Speedwagon. I feel like an old man. All my music is old, but this is an excellent driving song.

That's all I can think of for now. My brother and I used to listen to a lot of Pantera when we played softball together. It used to scare the hell out of people on the road.

Someone on here already has a quote from it as thier sig, but there is a song called 'The Church of Logic, Sin, and Love' by The Men that is PERFECT for driving from Tampa to Orlando twice a week. Whenever I have to make that drive, it's about 45minutes one way, I listen to that whole CD. Excellent Traveling music.

Two other CDs I always take with me on road trips are Traci Lords '1000 Fires' and Pulp 'Different Class'.

I merely suggested, that you had the driving ability of a brain dead labratory ape.

I prefer to think of great entire albums to drive by. For me, I've got: Black Sabbath's Heaven and Hell,
Busta Rhymes' Extinction Level Event,
Rush's Permanent Waves,
Guns 'n' Roses' Appetite for Destruction,
Mystikal's first album, the name of which I'm forgetting right now,
Type O Negative's Bloody Kisses,
Skid Row's 40 Seasons (I know, I know, it's a best of, but it's the only Skid Row album that has the least amount of filler crap, in my opinion)
and one that doubles as my favorite album to listen to when on a train for some reason, Dream Theater's Images and Words.

I can't believe it hasn't been mentioned...

Maybe I'm just cheesy...

But whatever happened to Life is a Highway?

I also like Take It Easy by the Eagles.

Also, any of the various "Best Of" Beach Boys cds floating around out there.

"Recovering the Sattelites" by the Counting Crowes is good.

Also, cliche time: "Blood on the Tracks" and "Nebraska" make for a killer one-two punch.

What, me, despressed?

They should push Batista as the RAW monster and have D-VON DUDLEY beat Brock Lesnar and become the Smackdown monster and have a big payoff fight on PPV.

Those two are the future of pro-wrestling.


This is why I like boards like this--everyone's got their own opinion, and no one belittles it.

As for me, I have this odd fascination with driving to songs featuring fatal car accidents such as Pearl Jam's cover of "Last Kiss" and Pink Floyd's "Two Suns in the Sunset."

The Church's 1988 'Starfish' album is good for long distance middle of nowhere kind of drives. A touch ethereal for most modern tastes, but I stand by it.

And as excellent an album as Tom Waits's "Bone Machine" is (truly a classic, on my all time top 5), driving on a winter's night through Connecticut with Bone Machine blaring would make even Up With People want to take their own lives. Takes a great album to do that, though.

Seriously, what the hell is there to do in Connecticut? There's an other worldly pizza place in Fairfield and Titan Towers 20 miles down the road, but the rest of the state is just the Boston-New York equivalent of flyover country.

Anything with a hot drum beat that allows me wear out the material on my steering wheel gets a lot of play whenever I'm driving.

Matthew Good Band's "Indestructible"
Sloan's "Underwhelmed"
Morris Day & The Time's "Jungle Love"
Veruca Salt's "Seether"
Kool & The Gang's "Get Down On It"
Virtually anything by Fu Manchu

and, believe it or not...

No Doubt's "Hella Good." GREAT driving song.

Goriliaz - Clint Eastwood

Cardigans - Favourite Game
Chemical Brothers - Setting sun

I mostly like driving to something with a quick beat to it mostly techo, chicks or guys from England and most of the time sound like chicks.

Oh they have the internet on computers now!

I like albums I can bounce tamely to in a cheerful manner when I'm driving. Such as:

-Anything by Cake or Sublime.
-Portishead's "Dummy".
-WWE Anthology.

Nothing beats Bruce Springsteen's "Nebraska" album for driving along on a dark highway in the middle of the night.

When you're in a "Metal-Thrasing Mad" kind of mood:
Helmet - Meantime
White Zombie - Astro Creep 2000 (perfect, hard-driving stuff)

For mellow, easy driving:
Willie Nelson - Red-Headed Stranger

When you wanna feel like a cross-country trucker:
Johnny Cash - I've Been Everywhere (single)

I like the lead singer's voice, it has a David Byrneish quailty to it. They don't seem to bring anything new to the table (more like bringing some nostalgic sounds back from the 80s)
