    Best driving songs

    What are your favorite songs to blast in your car on a road trip or driving in general?

    Mine:

    Interstate Love Song by STP
    Are You Gonna Be My Girl by Jet
    Kickstart My Heard by Motley Crue
    Valerie by Amy Winehouse (or Bruno Mars' tribute to her is just as good)
    Gimme Shelter by Rolling Stones
    She's My Man by Scissor Sisters
    Carried Away by Passion Pit

    Route 66 - I prefer the Chuck Berry version even though he "misrenounces" some of the town names.
    Hard to leave off Maybelline, as well.

    Nearly anything from Deep Purple's "Machine Head." Songs like "Space Truckin'" and "Highway Star" come to mind.

    Re: Best driving songs

    Every time I hear this song while driving, I go up at least 5 or 10 mph without knowing it.

    Re: Best driving songs

    "Wagon Wheel" by Old Crow Medicine Show (not that piece of crap rendition Darius Rucker made) is a great driving song, and just a great song in general.

    Ever since Kick Start My Heart was on one of the Gran Tourismo releases I have associated it with driving incredibly fast and often leaving the road on sharp turns.

    Re: Best driving songs

    depends on the mood. Sometimes you want hard thumping, aggressive music. Sometimes it's more of a low key cruise.

    Here's a good one for those mellow drives



    "What a horrible night to have a curse."
    -Simon Belmont

    "Please bury me with all my stuff, because you know it's mine..."
    -Master Shake

    "Passersby were amazed by the unusually large amounts of blood."
    -Lorem Ipsum
