Best Heavy Metal Driving Songs

This is a list of the best Hard rock, punk and most importantly Heavy Metal Driving songs

The Top TenXW

1Wherever I May Roam - Metallica

This song is about being on the road! Plus its such a great song, should be number one. - Nightlock

One of the best maiden songs the start draws you in and the rest speaks for it's self

Good song. Why did someone say it was a maiden song?

2Highway Star - Deep Purple

In my opinion best driving hard rock song and a masterpiece by Creators of Hard Rock & Metal!

The best driving song ever. But it's not a hard rock song, it's one of the first metal songs, if you know what's the difference. - Metal_Treasure

Classic Heavy Metal driving masterpiece from 70s alongside with Zeppelin's Immigrant Song...but much better...hehe for me Purple is always over the Zeppelin.

3Walk - Pantera

This song even thought the title is Walk, not Drive, is still such a good song and is such a good song for driving. - Nightlock

4Bad Habit - The Offspring

This song may make you drive angrily I don't know, It is about road rage...but "when I go driving I stay in my lane! " - Nightlock

They're Punk Rock, but hey, good song.

5Bat Country - Avenged Sevenfold

Another song about driving (sorta) a song about Las Vegas, but watch the music if you don't see the driving connection - Nightlock

The Contenders

11The Killing Road - Megadeth

Great Heavy Metal song really good for driving and just for listening anytime really - Nightlock

12Ride the Sky - Helloween
13Road to Asylum - Primal Fear
141000 Miles - Grinspoon

If you haven't heard of Grinspoon, please do yourself a favour and look them up they are Australian and Amazing. This is a great song, they have heaps better, but this is by far the best for driving. - Nightlock

15Nailed to the Wheel - Edguy

A great song and its chorus is mega-cool! "Nailed, nailed to the wheel ..." - Metal_Treasure

16Turbo Lover - Judas Priest

Wrapped in horse-power, driving into fury...

Changing gear I pull you tighter to me... - IronSabbathPriest

17Got the Life - Korn

Super catchy and the music video does have driving in it, although not recommended as they trash a Ferrari F355 in an epic jump and give their luxury mercedes away to a window washer - Danielsun182

18Highway to Hell - AC/DC

It isn't metal, shouldn't be on the list! - Metal_Treasure

This was an obvious choice for this list for a few reasons:
1) Its an amazing song!
2) its AC/DC
3) Its got Highway in its name, do it therefore must be a driving song - Nightlock

19Black Sunshine - White Zombie
20The Trooper - Iron Maiden
