Road Trip Songs

Post by BainbridgeShred » 03 Jul 2006 17:43

Headed East over the Cascade's into the desert that is Eastern Washington for a blues festival. It's about a 6 hour drive with me mainly in the driver seat, and I need some good road trip tunes to get me there. Any suggestions?

So far I have a little CCR, a little Stever Miller Band, and some 3-6 Mafia.

I have a playlist on my iPod for road trips. Here's a sampling:

Led Zeppelin "Ramble On"
Deep Purple "Highway Star"
Deep Purple "Space Truckin'"
Grateful Dead "Truckin'"
Tenacious D "The Road"
The Dead Milkmen "Bitchin' Camaro"
Black Sabbath "Into the Void"
Mountain "Travelin' In the Dark"
Fu Manchu "California Crossing"
Fu Manchu "King of the Road"
Clutch "Spacegrass" <--- best listened to while driving at night

May be harder to find but very good:

Nebula "Down The Highway"
Kyuss "The Low Desert Punk"
Monster Magnet "Theme from Masterburner"
Clutch "The Drifer"
Clutch "Sinkemlow"
The Atomic Bitchwax "Black TransAm"
Mr. Plow "The Only Reason You Got In Front of Me is Because I Let You"
Mr. Plow "Truckstop Lovin'"
Tummler "Dreaming of a Real Life"

An awesome band for road trippin is Kings of Leon, their cd "Youth and Young Manhood" has a very highway-driving sound to it IMO. But the album must be listened to in its entiredy beginning to end, no track skipping.
The Goggles do nothing.

Do you like Mazes?!

You should just get the CCR Revival 2-disc Collection album, almost every song goes for a road trip song.
Which songs have you got already?
