In recent weeks, a man was found driving his car erratically in Ohio. When he was pulled over by police, he insisted that “Ozzy Osbourne and his music made me do it”. He was listening to Ozzy and got so overwhelmed by the music that it made him drive like a mad man. Its not certain which tune he was listening to when the episode happened but it’s the inspiration behind this list of the popular tunes that make us drive faster than we probably ought to.
5. The Prodigy – Firestarter
Pretty much any song from The Prodigy can score you a speeding ticket on an interstate if you’re not careful. We ended up choosing “Firestarter” for the erratic drum beat. Other top contenders were “Breathe” and “Voodoo People”.
4.Limp Bizkit – Rollin’
Like him or not, there’s no denying that Mr. red cap’s music certainly helps in pushing the pedal to the medal. Everything about this song and video will get your adrenaline flowing. Drive safely.
3.System of a Down – Chop Suey
If you’re ever feeling a bit drowsy behind the wheel and the next exit is still a few miles away, max out that volume knob and blast away Chop Suey from SoaD. Not only will this keep you awake but you’ll make it to that exit that much sooner.
2.New Order – Confusion (Pump Panel Reconstruction)
This version of “Confusion” by New Order first made its appearance during the classic club scene in the first Blade movie. It’s rapid progression encourages you to try and keep up, but before you know it, you’re cruising at over 80 miles an hour. Slow down before you get yourself killed. Start by switching tracks to New Order’s, slightly more speed-limit friendly song, “60 Miles an Hour”.
1.Paul Oakenfold – Ready, Steady, Go!
There’s a reason that “Ready, Steady, Go!” was used in SAAB commercials, in the racing game Juiced and was NASCAR’s theme song in 2006. It’s the perfect track for the speed racer in you.
