    "I'm doin' a hundred on the highway
    So if you do the speed limit, get the F&$% outta my way"

  6. WVTeacherLady says:

    I got my one and only speeding ticket driving to the Who –“Baba O’Riley.”

  7. Clay says:

    Nothing from the last twenty years made it onto the list? "Flirtin' With Disaster" came out in 1979, not 2001.

    Try "Jesus Built My Hotrod."

  8. Crackwood says:

    What about Queen – Bohemian Rhapsody ? It's kinda hard driving while banging your head on your steering wheel !

  9. riproarious says:

    Some say speed kills, but slow and depressing wins the race every time. Case in point: Harry Chapin's "Cat's in the Cradle". Allow me to explain myself at

  10. Lia says:

    No Kiss? No Motley Crue? No Overkill?

  11. adam says:
