The Top Ten

1 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!

2 Highway Star - Deep Purple

This should be number 1. - Metarock

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.
