Best Driving Songs?

I don't think this has been done recently, but if it has, I apologize...

What songs do you love listening to on a hot, sunny day while driving down the freeway? Two of my favorites are:

Radar Love - Golden Earing
Runnin' Down a Dream - Tom Petty

Ministry - Jesus Built My Hotrod

"Soon I discovered that this rock thing was true

Jerry Lee Lewis was the devil

Jesus was an architect previous to his career as a prophet

All of a sudden, I found myself in love with the world

So there was only one thing that I could do

Was ding a ding dang my dang a long ling long"

My favorite driving song ever is The Smashing Pumpkins' "1979".

Lately I've been driving with The Chemical Brothers' "Star Guitar" though.

When I'm feeling particularly aggressive, I pop in "Dragula" and "Living Dead Girl" by Rob Zombie. They definitely are great driving songs. Also, "Agenda Suicide" by The Faint rocks. Have you heard of them isamu? They have definite similarities to Depeche Mode and The Cure. Anyway, I definitely agree with Grimfarrow about "1979". It's more of a mellow driving song, but really an excellent choice.

Fates Warning: A Pleasant Shade of Gray Pt. 5

Come to think of it, that's an angry list. I really need to drive in rush hour less.
