The 10 best road music albums of all time according to Chuck on 1019 KING FM

Summer is comin’ and that means rockin’ road trips. Let me introduce you to our top 10 rockin’ road trip albums. These are some of the biggest classic albums of all time and represent the drivin’ music fans of rock and roll.


1

"The Wall" - Pink Floyd

Truly amazing music for the road
 
 

Drum roll for numero uno: Pink Floyd's THE WALL shortens the destination on long road trips. Released as a double album, the tunes fly in this great concept album that doubles as rockin' road music.

 
2

"Runnin' Down A Dream" - Tom Petty

It doesn't get any better for pedal to the metal road tunes that this
 
 

From "Free Fallin'" to the title track "Runnin' Down A Dream" that screams top down, Del Shannon "Runaway" on the radio, this is one of the best at #2 on my list.

 
3

"Born To Run" - Bruce Springsteen

This is the real deal with motorin' music to fit the trip
 
 

The Boss is the best and miles melt away with "Tenth Avenue Freeze Out," "Born To Run" and "Thunder Road." Try this baby for your next jaunt to Laramie from Cheyenne...should time out at around 45 minutes.

 
4

"LA Woman" - The Doors

This must have been written and produced by the band exactly for road music
 
 

The infectious "Roadhouse Blues" is one of the best single road songs on the planet. Turn up "LA Woman" and "Riders On The Storm" extra loud for extra smiles to the mile.

 
5

"Live Bullet" - Bob Seger & The Silver Bullet Band

Recorded live in Cobo Hall Detroit - One of the best live albums of all time
 
 

It doesn't get any better than live "Travelin' Man/Beautiful Loser," "Turn The Page" and "Katmandu." These are hard core road songs and one of our favorites for long road trips.

 
6

"Captain & Me" - Doobie Brothers

Hold on to your hat and bonnet if you have the top down
 
 

One of the first albums I ever bought in 1973. The tunes are as rockin' as the road. "China Grove" is the best, hard rockin', hard drivin' tune ever done. "Long Train Runnin'," "Ukiah" and "Clear As The Driven Snow" are grand for late night road flights.

 
7

"Back In Black" - AC-DC

Firepower on the long lonesome highway
 
 

Where do we start? "You Shook Me All Night" is one of those set at 11 songs. "Back In Black," "Rock And Roll Ain't Noise Pollution" and "Shoot To Thrill," I'm like a New Yorker here. Forget about it!

 
8

"Little Creatures" - Talking Heads

Nice, tasty road music change of pace
 
 

The aptly named "Stay Up Late" perfect when driving all night. "And She Was" and "Road To Nowhere" perfect for a post alternative change of pace.

 
9

"White Album" - Beatles

Fab Four during the change from to perfection
 
 

Some day this is the best Beatles album and perhaps one of the best of all time. Where do we begin road warriors? From "Back In The USSR" to "While My Guitar Gently Weeps" and every song in between, this is a must for the miles.

 
10

"Repeat When Necessary" - Dave Edmunds

80's pure road pop for now people
 
 

What better road music than a song called "Crawlin' From The Wreckage"? The Elvis Costello song "Girl's Talk" and "Queen Of Hearts" covered by Juice Newton. All pure pop road music. Rockabilly on the open road.
