Top Ten driving tunes......

Hey guys, I'm going on a road trip with a few of my buddies and I need some good suggestions on driving music. We're all about 25 years old so we appreciate all genres of music. A lot of good ones are, of course, on the Grand Theft Auto soundtrack but I'd like to hear some new ones. Thanks.

I've always enjoyed the album Black Celebration by Depeche Mode while cruisin' down the highway.

"Big Empty" by the Stone Temple Pilots has always been one of my favorites.

[It's deja DEJA vu.... all over AGAIN!]

Older posts last longer in this forum so, as already mentioned, a search does throw up a number of threads from last year on this topic. As a result I will close this as a duplicate.... but not before reposting my own "bon mots" yet again

As "rock" is invariably seen as typical "driving" music, you may also like to check out the suggestions in Betho's: What songs would be good for a classic rock compilation?

When a pal asked a similar question on Usenet a while ago, here is what people said. I turned the first set - all from one guy - into a table (my own suggestion is the compilation at the end this post; not exclusively rock like these first selections but maybe still worthwhile if a change of pace is required):-

Van HalenMean StreetsTake your Whiskey homeRomeo's Delight
Black SabbathSupernautNational AcrobatAfter Forever
Thin LizzyWarriorGotta Leave This townChinatown
Kings XDogmanGroove MachineCigarettes
RiotFire Down UnderOutlawAltar of the King
Black SabbathTurn up the NightFalling off the Edge of the WorldDie Young
Corrosion Of ConformityClean My WoundsThe DoorLong Whip
AC/DCRiff RaffDown Payment BluesOverdose
&nbsp &nbsp
Here are a couple of alternative individual compilations that were posted:

Hole In The Sky (Black Sabbath)
Strutter (Kiss)
Symptom Of The Universe (Black Sabbath)
Echoes (Pink Floyd)
Megalomania (Black Sabbath)
Built For Speed (Motorhead)
Side 2 of MOR (Black Sabbath)
I Am The World (Mortiis)
Sabbra Cadabra Live (Black Sabbath)
Eating Ice Cream With The Devil (Supernaut)


Kill the King (Rainbow)
Save Yourself (MSG)
You Don't Remember, I'll Never Forget (YM)
Dangerous Tonight (Alice Cooper)
The Same Thrill (Scorps)
Rock "N" Roll (Motorhead)
Crash Dive (Saxon)
Hall Of The Mountain King (Savatage)
Problem Child (AC/DC)
Headed For Nowhere (Triumph, w/ Morse and Emmet duelling)

And this is just a bunch of stuff various people suggested:

Ted Nugent - Turn it Up
Judas Priest - Screaming For Vengeance
Motorhead - Killed By Death
Vinnie Moore - Minds Eye (whole album)
AC/DC - Back In Black (whole album)
Saxon - Northern Lady
Twisted Sister - You Can't Stop Rock N Roll
Judas Priest - Freewheel Burning
Accept -Fast as a Shark
Judas Priest - Hell Patrol
Motorhead - Overkill
Metallica - Hit the Lights
Ozzy - Bark at the Moon (if it's late)
AC/DC - Ride On (if it's even later, and it's an endless road)
Streets - Crimes In Mind
Mr. Big - Price You Gotta Pay
TNT - Intuition
Hughes/Thrall - The Look In Your Eyes

Here is the compilation tape I originally put together for a friend who was about to go on holiday. I'm not so sure driving was involved but, as I recall, the track selection took me some time so I thought I'd recycle it here [again ]

90-minute compilation
