Best Heavy Metal Driving Songs

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

The Top Ten

1 Highway Star - Deep Purple Highway 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.

2 Walk - Pantera Walk - 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

3 Bad Habit - The Offspring Bad 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.

4 Bat Country - Avenged Sevenfold Bat 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

? Wherever I May Roam - Metallica Wherever I May Roam - Metallica

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

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

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

Really anything Metallica does is great, almost every song theyve done is some of the best metal out there, and every song delivers pure electric adrenalice!

12 Road to Asylum - Primal Fear Road to Asylum - Primal Fear
13 1000 Miles - Grinspoon 1000 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

14 Nailed to the Wheel - Edguy Nailed to the Wheel - Edguy

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

15 Got the Life - Korn Got 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

16 Highway to Hell - AC/DC Highway 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

17 Black Sunshine - White Zombie Black Sunshine - White Zombie
18 The Trooper - Iron Maiden The Trooper - Iron Maiden
19 Supremist - Slayer Supremist - Slayer

It is fast, and the fast riff in the intro sounds COOL!
