There are only two reasons why you’d go on a roadtrip without any music to accompany you.
One, you have a clear and nonnegotiable hatred for tunes. Two, your car stereo is busted.
Music, if we may be so bold, is as essential to road trips as milk is to cereal. For one, it helps take your mind off of things that distract you from driving, like your need to pee with the next rest stop still miles away, for example.
And right now, we are very much in the mood to go on a road trip. One big reason: rainy days are here soon, and the bed’s beckoning on those cool, rainy days may be too strong for us to resist and haul our asses on a sojourn. So before the summer fully concedes to typhoon season (coincidentally, the first big one shares its name with a popular German auto brand), we’re going to put ourselves in the right mood to just get away and drive. With what, you ask? Why with music, of course! Here are ten of the best songs to be driving with:
1) The Ramones – "Blitzkrieg Bop"
