Last month we asked our friends on Facebook and Instagram to share their favorite songs for the road and they did not disappoint. A mix of upbeat tracks, songs you’ll want to sing along with, and chill tunes perfect for an easy cruise down an empty road, there’s a little something for everyone.
“Way Down We Go” by Kaleo
You might know this one from the many TV shows it’s been included in. If not, it’s a steady beat to add to your playlist. With distinct vocals, it’s the kind of song that builds and will have you nodding along with the beat.
“Highway to Hell” by AC/DC
This is a song that needs no introduction. Classic and rocking, we can’t think of another other song that defines a rumbling bike down a long, open road like this one.
“Mississippi Queen” by Mountain
If it’s not the cow bell or the striking guitar riffs that excite you, maybe it’s the catchy chorus that will have you belting out this hard-rock classic in no time.
“Black Betty” by Ram Jam
Iconic and upbeat, this classic rock hit might have you itching to give the throttle a little more juice. The fast-paced tune was rose to the top of charts in 1977 and it’s still in our top list today.
“Vultures” by Asking Alexandria
British rock band, Asking Alexandria, wrote this while on tour in 2015 but it wasn’t until 2017 that it was included in their album. With a steady beat, soulful lyrics, and captivating vocals, it’s the right song to add depth to your playlist.
“Low Rider” by War
Described as “American funk,” War release Low Rider in 1975 and it quickly rose to the top of the charts. With a laidback beat and smooth vocals, it’s an easy addition for a long, chill ride.
“School’s Out” by Alice Cooper
When many people think of Alice Cooper, this iconic hit is often first to come to mind. According to Wikipedia, the song was inspired from the question, “What’s the greatest three minutes of your life?” Maybe your answer is riding your bike.
“Born to Be Wild” by Steppenwolf
When you’re on the open road, the possibilities seem endless. Or maybe a little wild. This classic rock track has been associated with bikers for decades and we’re not mad about it.
“Take It Easy” by The Eagles
One of their signature songs, this tune is a classic: catchy with a winding melody that will have you singing along. “Take it easy” sounds like a perfect rule to live by this summer.
“Hot Blooded” by Foreigner
High-energy and catchy, this ultimate rock anthem will make the miles fly by while you nod along to the beat. Really any Foreigner song could be on this list, but we’ll pick this one for summer.
