I had to remove a bunch of songs from my iPOD becuase they made me drive too fast. You know what its like once you get into a groove.

I will live with that if they if they will stop looking down, texting and driving like old people going to church on sunday or driving like a staggering drunk.

...with no insurance to match,
So if I happen to run you down,
please don't leave a scratch.
 
2013-08-26 02:18:06 PM  
I don't think music or phones or ect is the real problem, attention span and judgment is.

"Radar Love"
 
2013-08-26 02:22:27 PM  
So there I am stopped at a red light and this cute girl, around 18 or 19, pulls up behind me in her compact coupe.  I noticed that she was looking straight ahead (not down at a cellphone) and had both hands on the wheel and appeared to be focusing on driving.  I was impressed.  So I go back to watching for the light to turn green and then notice movement in my rear-view mirror.  I look in the mirror to see this girl bouncing up and down on the seat, practically hitting her head on the roof, and swinging her head back and forth with her hair flying all around.  I'm thinking:  "I guess her favorite song just came on the radio."  The light turns green and I check the mirror again as I'm pulling away.  She's back in driving mode...  Both hands on the wheel, looking straight ahead and focused.

Cute kid.

I remember pulling the radio stations from GTA Vice City out of the game files and putting them on my mp3 player for the car. That was a mistake.

That's not fast enough.  Trying to get out of Flint is a complete defense to any speeding charge.

So stand on it.

I can't listen to ANY Ministry or Tool while driving. At all. The only times I've gotten speeding tickets have been Ministry and Tool related.

Motorhead's "Ace of Spades" (or "Stand", "Rock 'n Roll", etc.). This in a *rented* '08 Hemi Charger that handled like the '60s Batmobile. Had to stay Way The Hell focused to remain legal.

Why are people so hung up on Juke Joint Jezebel when it comes to KMFDM? It's the only song people ever mention. They hadn't even hit their stride yet when that came out.

I dare you to hit the highway with this playing.

As long as we are making lists - Top 10 (no order and no repeats from earlier I hope)
ACDC - Shoot To Thrill
Ramones - Blitzkrieg Bop
Ben Folds Five - One Angry Dwarf
Cowboy Mouth - Light It On Fire
Rob Zombie - Thunder Kiss '65
Steve Earle - Copperhead Road
David Lee Roth - Shy Boy

Because It was really the only KMFDM song that our club DJ played, and I learned how to "power goth" dance to it, and it holds a very special place in my heart.

Can't speak for others, but that is why it is my fav KMFDM song.

Freestyle-Don't Stop The Rock (Burned up more roller skate wheel bearings to that song than ANYONE had a right to... and it seems to have carried over to driving)

ooooh forgot about Lemmy and the boys. How the heck could I forget them? I'm sitting here half headbanging thinking about the thing growing out of Phil's neck right now.

Metallica's "Fuel" was partly responsible for my one and only fender-bender incident about 8 years ago. (though it was mostly because I was distracted fiddling with the speed of the windshield wiper)

I get distracted as easily by audio books.

Music isn't that interesting for the most part, so i drown it out and focus on the road.  It's just background.

Any metal song with double kick bass drums.  Cruise control is a must to pull that off.

Fair enough. I think it was also the last semi-commercial song of theirs, so it got a decent amount of play on MTV and whatnot. Was also on a few sound tracks. Which could explain the others.

/Also suggest this and this

My Grand Am is held together with gaffers tape and luck. When I push my "cruise control" button, my car just lulz. And explodes a little.

I can't help but try to see how fast my 12-year-old Grand Am will go when I'm listening to "Feuer Frei" by Rammstein.

/the answer is "not very," or it will start to fall apart
