During my commute to the salt mine a few days ago I hit the highway on-ramp just when "Danger Zone" - Kenny Loggins (from Top Gun) came on the radio. I thought it was pretty cool so I pushed the gas pedal through the firewall and enjoyed a nice early morning WOT. What is your ideal on-ramp tune?

PS - To the guy behind me in the convertible - sorry about the carbon deposit cloud! It might be time to clay bar.

You know, aside from always being one of my favs to blast down the highway to... I finally realized that this pretty much explains just how GM got into it's current mess... It had nothing to do with management - it's the line workers' fault.

Johnny Cash - "One Piece at a Time"

Uhh... Yeah Red Rider, this is the cottonmouth in the psycho-billy Cadillac come on... Uhh... This is the cottonmouth and negatory on the cost of this mo-chine there Red Rider, you might say I just went up to the factory there and picked it up - it's cheaper that way...
Classic... There'll never be another one like him.

It was 2:30AM on an early Sunday and had a 3 lane highway wide open and empty right in front of me when this came on...




I think I traveled about 8 miles in 4 minutes with a peak of 163...

Had you only recently come across that song? It's been a staple on my cassettes/cds for years...
I've had several Cash favorites for many years including Hung my Head, Folsom Prison Blues and others, and I have a Cash anthology in my MP3 collection but I've never actually sat down and listened to all the songs intently. I set my entire collection to play randomly and they come on every so often. One day I heard that and I just about fell out of my chair, it's been a favorite ever since.

I also like Cisco Clifton's Fillin' Station.

Cowboys from Hell, you time your right foot to where the bass drops about 30 seconds in.



On-ramps were a lot more fun in my old Z28, thing was so freaking loud and it would usually break the tires loose at 30mph.

For the onramp, I fast forward the song "Takin' A Ride (Heavy Metal)" by Don Felder to the 9-second mark (the first bit is just a guitar build-up).

For cruising, any hard rock or nu-metal will do just fine. For the initial start-up in the driveway, and the inevitable initial burn-out down the street, "Smells Like Teen Spirit" by Nirvana. As soon as the initial riffs give way to the drums, the pedal hits the floor.

Thank you SO MUCH for mentioning that song. I went and downloaded Cowboys From Hell and Cemetary Gates yesterday and was mega impressed with both of them. :)

Another great on ramp song is "No More Tears" By Ozzy Osbourne. The guitar solo about four and a half minutes through is insane.

I like the Pantera Greatest Hits myself. You can never go wrong with Walk. I also LOVE the 101 Proof Live album.

Phil Anselmo used to have a kick ass haunted house in New Orleans. I ran into the band at a dive bar in the Dallas Metroplex called Tijuana and they were with Sebastian Bach, everyone was really cool.
