For some reason, this song always gets me pumped. I played it through the best part of Tail of the Dragon.

I think it's the combo of Geddy's power chords on the synth, Pert banging it out on the skins and the absolute overkill of 80's teen angst that the song is about. Guess you can figure my age.

This being a Porsche forum I’m surprised no one has suggested Wagner’s greatest hit ‘The Ring’. Although, at 16 hours for the whole tetralogy you better have a long road trip in mind.

For a drive with a mission in mind, perhaps the ‘ride of the Valkyrie’ from the second of the four parts of the ring. (The is really a country and western song about men who do wrong and women who are wronged by foolishly putting love before duty and etc etc.).

If you can get into this style of country and western while driving, then note this caution: "Hot tip: never put on Wagner in the car. Ride of the Valkyries is most dangerous thing to listen to on the road, apparently, because the the amped tempo is likely to make you feel like you need to speed to keep up with the music."
