Has Freebird been mentioned in this thread yet?  If so, the site's search function is terrible…

I can no longer think of "Free Bird" and driving without having The Devil's Rejects come immediately to mind.

I second "Life Is A Highway". I'm surprised it wasn't mentioned sooner.

Ugh. I hate that song.

I like that song.  It made the movie "Cars" even better, even if they used Raschal Flats instead of Tom Cochrane's version.
I'm not usually a fan of Rascal Flatts, but I feel like they actually improved Tom Cochrane's original.

And while we're talking of covers and the OP mentioned Chickenfoot, check out their cover of Deep Purple's Highway Star.

Ok, Ok, thought of a couple of more:

How many of us who got our licenses in the late 70's through mid 80's got busted by someone in another car for tapping out the drum line to "My Sharona" on the steering wheel/dashboard (GUILTY), :p


and who can forget the late night blasts up a freeway on-ramp to "Danger Zone", especially right after the movie "Top Gun" came out?


Oh and I got my first traffic ticket on Salem Drive in Schaumburg Il way back in the day and when the officer walked up to the window I was cranking some Sammy Hagar "I Can't Drive Fifty-Five". The officer looked at me and said "It's ok, you weren't doing 55.....however you were doing 37-in a 25. License and registration please." :eyebrow:

The first time a police officer approached me about something I did with a car, it was because I'd been making fast tight circles in my high school stadium parking lot.  While making those maneuvers, I'd been blasting Styx "Come Sail Away".  The girl in the car with me enjoyed it as much as I did.  Officer didn't issue a ticket; he just lectured me about how I someone else was doing the same thing and wrapped his vehicle around one of the concrete light pole bases.  Of course, I'd made it a point to remain aware of those during my maneuvers, but I wasn't gonna argue that point with the cop.

As a fan of electronic music, I have to say that I really enjoy listening to that type of music while driving. Some of my personal favorites include...

Speak of the Devil by Hermitude

Forever Lost by Pretty Lights

DTW to DIA by GRiZ

Netzwerk (Falls Like Rain) by Klangkarussell

Untrue by Tchami

Lost You and White Satin by Zeds Dead

This one ranks #1 for me. High You Are by What So Not (Branchez remix).

I like liquid dnb for driving.  It's calm, but it also keeps me awake due to the fast beat. 

Here's an example of one.

(snipped Etherwood video)

Same here. Liquid is my favorite subgenre of dnb. Calibre, Logistics, Nu:Tone, High Contrast, Klute, and (even though he isn't necessarily liquid) Culture Shock are some of my favorite artists in no particular order.

Yeah, dnb mixes are good for that. I recommend the Green Mix of Andy C's Nightlife 6. There are also two other mixes (Red and Blue) that explore different styles of the genre.

There's a lot of Tom Petty that sounds awesome while driving. 
"Runnin' Down a Dream" in particular.

AC/DC's "Thunderstruck" goes quite well with freeway velocities.

I love me some Foo Fighters, and some of their faster tunes like "DOA" or "The Pretender" are good on the road.

I like to queue up tracks from Darkside of the Moon when in traffic.  Keeps the stress down when jackholes cut you off.
"Breathe.... Breathe in the air...."

I live on the road right now, so there are a lot of songs I associate with driving.  I hear them on the radio; they come up on my media player; I associate songs with cities.
I've got my Salt Lake City songs, my Albuquerque songs, my Nashville songs, my Milwaukee songs, my Anchorage songs even though I was only there for two weeks.

I can't believe nobody mentioned 'Baker Street' by Gerry Rafferty...until now. It's in Grand Theft Auto's radio stations embedded in the game. I remember it from Coast-to-Coast AM bumpers when Art Bell hosted (now by George Noory). If I ever find a Baker Street near me, I wanna play it...but I don't drive, so if I was with my wife or parents or in a bus, listen to it.

I'll check that song out. I noticed he also referenced a freeway in another song: Collard Greens by Schoolboy Q, when he says "Pop my top on the [Interstate] 105". And a few days ago he was rapping on a traffic signal. Wouldn't it be great if he was actually a roadgeek?
