Top 100 Rock Songs While Driving

Listening to songs as you drive in your car is fun. Here’s a list of rock songs you should play on your car stereo when you are driving long distances.

Driving a car on the highway is an enjoyable experience. However, when you are driving long distance, it can get a little frustrating being behind the wheel, especially if you are the lone driver. In such times you need to keep your energy levels high. Why? Well, funny as it may seem drivers tend to doze when they do not have company in the car. Long distance driving requires the driver of the vehicle to be alert at all times. The best way to be alert behind the wheel is by listening to music, not any type of music, rock music in particular.

It’s best to avoid sentimental songs when you are driving because the mind tends to drift in a rosy picture and when that happens… you are likely to go crash-boom-bang in the real world. Yeah, love songs and music genres which make you sentimental can be hazardous on a long drive.  

Rock songs are a wise choice while driving because…they are hard hitting and always keep the driver alert. Yeah, good old heavy metal is a safe bet when you are off on a long drive in your car. You do not have to keep the volume of your car stereo at full capacity to enjoy rock songs. If the windows of your car are closed, the volume at the halfway mark is good enough. In case you like your windows open as you are drive… you can tweak the volume to the desired level. While many drivers like to turn up the volume to maximum as they drive, it’s best to tweak the volume knob midway to experience clarity of rock songs.

It’s best to listen to a mixed bag of rock songs from different genres when you undertake a long journey by car. Listening to songs from a particular rock genre can get monotonous. When you listen to rock songs from different rock genres you never really get bored. Rock songs keep you alert as you drive. Drive Safe!
