Peoples preferences of music choice when driving?

Recommended Posts

Curious to see what people listen to when they are driving? What genre(s) names of artists and how loud! 

My music taste is pretty vast, personally right now Im into R&B and rap, i like the bass up high and volume usually about 17+.

On weekends before a night out I quite like blasting techno/deephouse/house

Heavy rock from the 70s/80s AC/DC, Motorhead, Black Sabbath etc etc and depending on the mood some Pink Floyd. :punk:

 

Anyone notice the difference different music affects your driving style? Bob Marley's 3 Little Birds came on the radio the other day on the way home from work and I cranked it up and after a couple of minutes I was down to 20mph(in a 30) :afro: :smoke:

When I've got Pipper with me, I usually drive without anything on.

Without her it varies considerably.

Yes, indeed, I've found  house, techno and speed metal are good if you need to be somewhere at a definite time and haven't really allowed yourself enough.  Reggae and trance for that matter, will slow you right down to a crawl, so that even grannies in Nissans will overtake you

I will listen to whatever is on the radio (tends to be Radio 1) until I actively don't like something (i.e. Justin Bieber) and then swap over stations. If I could be bothered to sling some of my own choices onto a USB stick then I would probably be listening to anything form Warren G - Regulate to Dua Lipa.

I listen to mainly Kisstory, with the occasional Kiss, Absolute 00's, or Magic Chilled.

Infrequently, I'll sometimes start playing my Modern Rock playlist on Spotify.

That said there are some songs/artists that I absolutely loathe, and will switch radio stations upon hearing them play: Little Mix, Rag Bone Man, Ed Sheeran, Stormzy, to name a few.

U2, Pink Floyd, Paulo Nutini and Gorillaz are my current choices.
Absolute radio and local stations for traffic and news occasionally but definitely not Radio 1, too much s### on there for me.

If I hear Galway Girl once more, not even a oiled up stunning Irish Lady will make me smile :wacko:

The new Gorillaz album is quite good. The Saturnz Barnz video is good and the 360 YouTube version is also fun to watch. Gorillaz are playing down in Margate soon and I will be on duty to support the highway side of things.

I like a very eclectic mix of music, last week I was listening to Pink, The Police and Ace Of Base and tonight I was singing Madonnas Like a Prayer to my baby lol. Last month though I was listening to DMX, Eminem, Dre and Warren G. This week though it was a mix of recent pop music on a Spotify playlist.

Mainly classic rock like, Led Zeppelin, Rush & Free. Not too loud as I'm aware of very mild tinnitus.

However I did spin a Mk4 Escort once (long time ago) into a ditch whilst blasting AC/DC Highway to Hell, which I thought was quite appropriate!

When I'm in my truck (which is most of the day) I listen to Braingell Radio. Without doubt the best of the best Metal radio stations and no bleedin adverts ever. Oh and the volume is at max.
In the car it's Metal most of the time but I do listen to radio 1's Friction (drum n bass) just to exercise my subwoofer lol. Volume is at 20. 30 would wake the dead lol
