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

Rebel Yell-Billy Idol
Under Pressure-ZZ Top
Whip It-Devo

Not in any particular order:

Highway 61 Revisited - Johnny Winter

Cross Roads - Cream

Roadhouse Blues - Doors

Right place, Wrong Time - Dr. John

Maybelline - Chuck Berry

Night on Bald Mountain - Borodin

I want to Take you Higher - Sly and the Family Stone

Little Nash Rambler

I put the question to Mrs. Montoya last night. She looked at me like I was insane (typical look for just about any question I put to her) and said, “Born To Be Wild” like I was an idiot (which I am) for not knowing this would be her answer.

She *hates * Steppenwolf.

Geez guys there is only one CD to play if you are in a high speed chase.
the sound track to Grand Prix :smiley:

Because family vans can speed too:

Ace of Spades- Motorhead

Got the Time -Anthrax

Unsung- Helmet

Oh and my kids love Hey Ya- Outkast

The Benny Hill Theme.

I think you mean Yakkety Sax by Boots Randolph.

I posted in the thread about making bootlegger turns with a hand break and added a crack about Foggy Mountain Breakdown. That got me wondering if the famous Flatt and Scruggs tune was was associated with chase scenes before Bonnie and Clyde in 1967.

Well several of my choices have already been covered except for

Motley Crue - Kickstart My Heart
Styx - Renegade
Roger Daltrey - Lightning
Queen - 1 Vision

Geeze, hijack a thread and I don’t even contribute to the OP. A lot of good songs have been picked but I never said I was original

Radar Love,
Hot Rod Lincoln - Cdr. Cody
Radar Rider - (from the movie heavy Metal where the corvette drops out of the space shuttle for reentry)
Paranod - Black Sabbath
Rock and Roll - Led Zeppelin, well until Cadillac ruined it for everyone
I Fought the Law - The Clash instead of the orignal by The Bobby Fuller Four. I love the clash, the thinking man’s sex pistols.
Tell-Tale Heart - Alan Parsons Project

As much as I hate to pick a bonehead simple, three-chord, my grandma could play the solo, forumla song I would have to pick Detroit, Rock City for when I drive my '67 'Cuda (with the 440 super commando six pack option) into the blades of the bulldozers.

Sammy Hagar - I Can’t Drive 65
Queen - I’m In Love With My Car
ACDC - Highway to Hell
Flatt and Scruggs - Foggy Mountain Breakdown
Commander Cody - Hot Rod Lincoln
Ozzie - Crazy Train
Ride of the Valkyries CRANKED UP

Moist – Ophelia
Paul Oakenfold – Ready Steady Go
Methods of Mayhem – Going Too Fast
Matthew Good Band – Everything is Automatic
The Run Lola Run Original Soundtrack
Default – Deny
Fluke – Atom Bomb
Live – Shit Towne
Matchbox 20 – Disease
Crystal Method – The Name of the Game
David Usher – Black, Black Heart 2.0
The Matrix Original Soundtrack
Hednoize – Loaded Gun
Overseer – Horndog
Roxette – I Remember You

This should be good for a 3+ hour run :smiley:


What, nobody’s mentioned “Highway Star”?

OK, here’s my list

Highway Star- Deep Purple
Motorhead- Motorhead
The Trooper- Iron Maiden
You’ve Got Another Thing Comin’ and Diamonds and Rust- Judas Priest
Dancin’ Again- Roger Glover
Blitzkrieg Bop- The Ramones
Radar Love- Golden Earring
Death Alley Driver- Rainbow
Still I’m Sad- Ritchie Blackmore’s Rainbow*
Still I’m Sad- Ritchie Blackmore’s Rainbow**
[sub]*I consider Rainbow to be a different band than Ritchie Blackmore’s Rainbow
**There were actually two completely different bands called Ritchie Blackmore’s Rainbow. The first was fronted by Ronnie James Dio (who, I believe is one of us now…) and did a kickass instrumental version of “Still I’m Sad.” The second, formed after Blackmore left the reunited Deep Purple, did a really, seriously fantastic rocked up version of “Still I’m Sad”, with lyrics this time. Both would make excellent car chase music.[/sub]

Damn, you beat me to it. Go, Chief Wiggums!

Actually, now that I think about it… in Men in Black, Tommy Lee Jones puts in an Elvis “country” 8-track just as Will Smith pushes the “red button” in the LTD. What is the name of that song?
