If you're in a high-speed chase, what tunes would you have on the stereo?

Terisa Bright’s Self Portrait
Quiet, jazzy Hawaiian

Danger Zone
That song from the mountain dew commercial where the car turned over in midair
Fire On High- ELO
Take it to the limit- Eagles
Already Gone- Eagles

And when I finally get away, none other than the instrumental remixed version of the Final Fantasy victory song!
That song is so freakin’ cool…

502 - Megadeth
Fuel - Metallica
**Bad Habit ** - The Offspring
**Stone Cold Crazy ** - Either Queen or Metallica version
Dragula - Rob Zombie
Breakdown - Suicidal Tendencies
**Highway to Hell ** - AC/DC
I Can’t Drive 55 - Sammy Hagar

And when I head to my fiery death:

**Bat Out of Hell ** - Meatloaf

Low Fidelity Allstar’s Battle Flag
Leslie Gore’s Sunshine, Lollipops and Rainbows
A really lively version of Ghost Riders in the Sky
Rimsky-Korsikoff Sabre Dance
Garbage’s I’m Only Happy When It Rains, Push It, or Special
Flatt and Scruggs’ Foggy Mountain Breakdown

Foghat. Not that I could name a song by the band, but there was a Wall of Voodoo song that made a reference to a killer on the road listening to Foghat. Not that I can remember the Wall of Voodoo song either.

I’m very helpful, I know.

I once got a speeding ticket that I blamed on "I’m So Excited" by the Pointer Sisters. (It was 3AM - there was no one else on the road, except that cop.)

Happiest Girl in the Whole USA

Gregorian chants

The original Sesame St Theme

Other Sesame St classics such as the timeless *One Two Three FOOOUR five *, or the hauntingly beautiful M’NAH M’NAH Do doo de do doo

Or anything else that’d catch the cop off his guard.

Oh okay then. Banjo for me too.

I’ll agree with banjo music.

Flight of the Wounded Bumblebee by Extreme for sheer rockin’ness.
Buzzbomb by the Dead Kennedys for lyrical content.

And, when I finally get pulled over, Officer by Operation Ivy, for lyrical content.

  1. Eminem - Just Don’t Give A Fuck
  2. Outkast ft George Clinton - Synthesizer
  3. Eminem - Criminal
  4. 50 Cent - Poor Lil Rich
  5. Tupac - Hit em up
  6. D12 - Revelation
  7. DMX Fuck Y’all
  8. Nappy Roots - Awnaw - Rock version
  9. NWA - Fuck the police
  10. RATM - Fuck the police - Rock version
    I’m pretty confident that I can go through the CD twice before getting caught.

If I’m doing this in Downtown Denver in my ’83 Corolla: Boston, Foreplay/Long Time. This set popped my Rock n Roll cherry, only fitting it should be the last I hear.

If I’m doing this on a motorcycle & it all ends in flames: The Damned, Psychomania. The song invokes in me scenes of high speed motorcycle madness—even before I discovered that there is a campy British horror flick of the same title from ’72 that is largely about undead high speed motorcycle madness.

And of course, if either of them come on the radio in a banjo cover well, you’ll know it’s me when you’re watching about it in the news. My little Corolla may not be fast, but it’s nimble and can out distance the cops (at 85 mph) on a full tank of gas. :smiley:

Slap in any Ramones record, crank it all the way up, rip off the knobs and go man go!.


‘Jesus Built My Hotrod’ by Ministry

Detroit Rock City - Kiss
It’s Catching Up - Nomeansno
Pipeline - Agent Orange version
Takin’ A Ride - Replacements
Motorbreath - Metallica

… and so forth.

Molly Hatchet - Flirtin’ With Disaster on a loop.

F’r cryin’ out loud folks! No Born to Be Wild?

Breakin’ the Law – Judas Priest

Hot Rod Lincoln - Commander Cody and the Lost Planet Airmen
Devil With A Blue Dress On &
Good Golly Miss Molly - Mitch Ryder & the Detroit Wheels
Jumpin Jack Flash - Johnny Winter
Whammer Jammer - J Geils Band
30 Days in the Hole - Humble Pie

to be continued…

Because I’ve watched a friend play way too much Crazy Taxi … that YA YA YA YA YA song, by the Offspring, or one of those sound alikes.

There’s an interesting one.

I personally would leave the music off because I’d like to be able to hear what my tires are doing, and think the howl of my engine at 9k RPM would be much more exciting than just about any music I could play.

But if it was one of those mindless don’t-really-care-if-I-get-caught-or-die car chases, I’d put on:

Guns ‘n’ Roses - You Could Be Mine (remember Terminator 2?)
Dark Funeral - The Arrival of Satan’s Empire
Iron Maiden - Die with your boots on, Run to The Hills, Aces High, (<-- fitting lyrics)Two Minutes to Midnight, and a myriad of others (I love Maiden)
Fear Factory - Remanufacture
Symphony X - Evolution, Fallen
Kage - Beauty and the Speed II
Lynard Skynard - Freebird

And if I were feeling particularly pessimistic about how the chase might end, I might play Dream Theater’s A Change of Seasons just becase it’d be what I’d like to be listening to when I die.

Damn, I hate to get interrupted in the middle of something…
Going Up The Country - Canned Heat
Look at Yourself - Uriah Heep
I’m Going Home - Ten Years After
Baby Whatcha Want Me To Do - Johnny & Edgar Winter

Of course, this list would change on a daily basis…
