When you are driving from coast to coast, I guarantee that your stereo will be on all the way throughout. This playlist will give a road trip the extra fun it needs.
AC/DC-Highway to Hell
This is obviously a classic highway tune that will have you swaying in a sing along. AC/DC’s classic highway shredding is great way to start off any highway shredding trip. It's sure to make you air guitar all the way down to Route 666.
Guns n Roses- Paradise City
Remember when Axl Rose and Slash were still in the same band? Well, every song from that had Slash axe his way with a guitar in a way that will truly make a drive to remember. So it’s no surprise that “Paradise City” is going to be that destination song that you simply can’t get out of your head.
