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 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.

3 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

Best driving song ever

5 Freewheel Burning - Judas Priest

Really good song from one of the greatest Metal bands of all time! Again sort of about driving - Nightlock

6 Death Alley Driver - Rainbow
7 Rollin' (Air Raid Vehicle) - Limp Bizkit

Where is the metal in this song? - Metal_Treasure

Well another Car or driving song, really great if you love Nu Metal or Rap Metal - Nightlock

This one should be in the top 5, every time I hear this song in my car, I just forget everything and hit the gas hardcore! Because...
Keep rollin' rollin' rollin' rollin'

Keep rollin' rollin' rollin' rollin'
Keep rollin' rollin' rollin' rollin'

8 The Four Horsemen - Metallica
9 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.

10 I Speed at Night - Dio

The Contenders

11 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


ANYWHERE'S I go I ALWAYS listen to this song

12 The Killing Road - Megadeth

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

13 Ride the Sky - Helloween
14 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

15 Road to Asylum - Primal Fear

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

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

Classic race song

17 Riding the Eagle - Primal Fear

20 Nailed to the Wheel - Edguy

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

21 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

22 Kickstart My Heart - Motley Crue

Umm, another song that isn't metal. - Metal_Treasure

23 Wildest Dreams - Iron Maiden
24 The Trooper - Iron Maiden
25 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

26 1,320' - Megadeth
27 Motorbreath - Metallica
