Road Trip

Haven't been on a road trip in a while but the music you bring along for the drive I believe to be incredibly important. So I've thrown together a list of what I would probably choose as a sound track track for the drive. Also, I ask, if you and a few friends are out on a road trip what would you bring with and or what would you suggest.

El Camino

2Dispatch
Bang Bang


So you're on the freeway now and you need something good, but also something that doesn't completely dominate the the sound waves in the van. Dispatches Bang Bang sounds perfect to me; catchy and easy to sing along with but also you and your road trip companions can still manage a conversation over top of the music.
3Eyedea
The Many Faces of Oliver Hart


You and your amigos have been on the road long enough now to realize that you won't reach your destination for a very long time. So you decide to pass a little time by partaking of the pipe. For this, Eyedea's The Many Faces of Oliver Heart provides the perfect sounds. From the lazy guitar and heavy bass and snare drum to the lazy sounds of my personal favorite, Bottle Dreams.
4System of a Down
System of a Down


This may seem out of place so I'll provide a little back story. My friend and I delivered the local shopper to just about the entire town that we grew up in, of about 2,000, for the better part of ten years every Saturday morning. The sucked, until we got our licenses. Once we were licensed drivers we would tear around town in the beastly 88' Chrysler New Yorker, chucking papers and blasting through System of a Down's discography usually every week. Now back to the road trip. All but you and the guy you slung papers with for 10 years have passed out. So now is the time to bust out SOAD for old time's sake.
5Portishead
Dummy


You've been up for way too long at the point so you need something soothing for you to pass out to. Also, maybe the driver is still feeling a little something from the pipe that you shared earlier. If that is the case, then this shall easily conquer both of your needs.
6Nickelback
Here and Now


You're fast a sleep and the driver feels the need to rape your subconscious with the most terrifying, degenerate piece of shit he could get his hands on.
7Radiohead
OK Computer


As the driver was donkey punching your subconscious you had a terrible nightmare in which you were being eaten alive by the hideous monster that is, Chad Kroger. Only to be saved by Tom Yorke lighting him a blaze and pushing him into an endless pit of despair and agony. While falling he, just as Prometheus, shall have his liver eaten daily by an eagle just to have it grow back the next. Upon waking from this nightmare, turned wet dream, you realize you need to listen to OK Computer.
8Led Zeppelin
Led Zeppelin IV


The sun is now rising behind you as you travel on westward and it's time to awaken the groggy passengers by (Warning!!! Cliche ahead) getting the Led out.
9Frank Turner
Love, Ire & Song


You're all bright eyed and bushy tailed now and it's time for some Live, Ire & Song. In a van filled with young adults, this album me seem as if it were a biopic written just for you, I know it does for me. And also make your decision to leave all your responsibilities and cares behind, if only for a week, as you drive half way across the continent, completely justified.
10Foo Fighters
Wasting Light


What's a road trip without the Foo Fighters, and after the thought provoking Love, Ire & Song the Foo Fighters let you just turn it up to eleven and see what that mini van tops out at.
11Nine Inch Nails
The Downward Spiral


Well if you didn't check out the top speed of that mini van your buddy borrowed from his parents during the last album, by the time March of the Pigs starts the van will do it on its own, and then the dark but mesmerizing Hurt brings you back down to earth, just before your van sprouts wings and takes flight.
12The Replacements
Let it Be


After the ever so depressing ending to the Downward Spiral it's time to cheer things back up with this gem by The Replacements. And the opening track, I Will Dare, almost calling out as a challenge to do something you've never done before. On that note, I think I'm going skydiving this spring :)
13Green Day
Dookie


You're almost there, and the excitement is building as the mile markers fly past. Had a little trouble picking out this one. I felt it needs to be something to capture the excitement of almost reaching your destination so you can finally escape the confinements of the van and explore this new place you've never been and may never be again. I finally decided on Dookie because I can, and why the hell not. It's up beat, and I was only five when it was release but when I heard it for the first time I was excited to play it again, and again, and again...
14Bob Dylan
Highway 61 Revisited


If you didn't know, Minnesota state highway 61 runs from Duluth up the the far northeast point of MN, Grand Portage. So if your road trip takes you up that beautiful drive along the coast of Lake Superior then this album isn't even optional. However this road trip goes nowhere near it, still a great choice though.
15Eagles
Eagles


Well you've made it, you're "standing on a corner in Winslow Arizona," taking it easy. Now time to turn around and head back home.
