    It's cold outside.
    Seriously, no music at all.

    Hypothetically, something with a thumping beat, 120 bpm or more. I'll say Highway Star.

    It would either be some turn of the century hard trance mix or NOFX

    For me, there's nothing like doing a long distance drive with that one. Not sure I'd be listening to it at 150 ...

    “Always Crashing In The Same Car”

    Bowie masterpiece.
    Trent agrees.

    If I am stupid enough to drive like that, chances are am am too preoccupied to pay attention to the radio.

    When I was flooring it on the Autobahn (in 2010), I just kept the radio on and quasi-listened to a variety of popular songs of the time. At that speed, the music was pretty secondary to paying attention to the road.

    At that speed, as when I've driven on tracks ... nothing to distract, including music.

    This is the song from Highway To Hell that makes me drive fast, not the title track.



    And as I busted out my old forgotten, unfairly maligned second full-length Toadies album the other day, I was reminded that this one does too.

    Winner winner, chicken dinner. Hopefully you're behind the deal of a manual transmission car listening to the engine sing. Who needs lame music about cars?
