What we're dealing with here is a complete lack of respect for the law.

I'm not sure I could drive a tractor/trailer. How the hell did a 12-year-old do it?

Run away from a counseling session, steal a truck.

This is why we can't have nice things.

Sounds like a logging truck, it's got to be a double-clutch transmission.  I figured they got it rolling and never shifted.  But since they got it up to 65 mph, they definitely had to run through the gears.  Has to be a couple of farm boys who've been driving tractors since they were eight.

Per the article:
"They allegedly ran away, and stole a tractor truck from Universal Forest Products that had the keys inside."

Got that right.

I vote this.  Most kids I grew up with could drive a tractor with 16 speeds or a straight truck with a manual and aux transmission with no problems.  Why?  'Cause daddy said "Get your ass up there and drive, boy."  "Yes, sir."

Harmonics.... plink plink plink plink plink plink plink (repeat twice, change keys, repeat)
Slappy bass... bum bumpabumpbabumpbum bum bum bumbumbumbumbum
Swing riff with drums...
Bass and lead share octave-jumping riff and then out of nowhere:
WHAW WHAW WHAW WHAW WHAW!

Overlay with singer who sounds like he just ate sushi with way too much wasabi... up and down my spine...

WHAW WHAW WHAW WHAW WHAW!

More slappy base....
Harmonics....
Repeat, and fade...
