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

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.

Deep purple,the best heavy-metal band ever

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

4 Fuel - Metallica V 1 Comment
5 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.

6 Freewheel Burning - Judas Priest

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

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'
