Top road-trip songs at Custom Rigs, from Pioneer

| December 13, 2010

Overdrive custom Class 8 dedicated magazine Custom Rigs recently reported news of Pioneer Electronics’ first-ever poll of its customers that asked for the best “Road Trip” song. Willie Nelson’s “On the road again” took top billing, while Pioneer reported, the guys were more likely to choose the the no. 2 track, “Born to be wild,” while unmarrieds the nation over chose AC/DC’s “Highway to hell.”

I guess I might go for the Doors song from this, but I can think of several others, too. Which leads to the next question: What’s your favorite road-trip song — post suggestions in the comments.

Full top ten list follows:

1. “On the road again,” Willie Nelson
2. “Born to be wild,” Steppenwolf
3. “Take it easy,” Eagles
4. “I get around,” Beach Boys
5. “Highway to hell,” AC/DC
6. “Free falling,” Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers
7. “Riders on the storm,” Doors
8. “I wanna rock and roll all night,” Kiss
9. “Wanted: Dead or alive,” Bon Jovi
10. “Free bird,” Lynyrd Skynyrd
