    good traveling music?

    Well, now that school is finally over, I am going on a trip to Chicago for the weekend with my brother and 3 other people. It's an 8 hour drive, so we need some good music to listen to. Any suggestions?

    My brother and I are big heavy metal fans, but his girlfriend and her sister probably won't approve, so please don't suggest anything hard core

    I'm looking for something to cheer us up for the long trip and get the mood going. Maybe some rock/pop/anything that will appeal to the females in the company Content of the lyrics doesn't matter as we are all mature people.

    So, what do you listen to when you go on a road trip?

    Sometimes bouncy semi-electronic music gets the mood going. Something that isn't exactly techno, but it isn't exactly rock either. It has like synthesizer and sequenced parts but also has a lot of rock elements. Such bands could be Atom and His Package (1-man band from Philadelphia, haha), LCD Soundsystem, Of Montreal, ON! AIR! LIBRARY!, Ratatat (really good in my opinion), Rush (Moving Pictures, Permanent Waves and Signals are the albums i would suggest), and The Hippos. I can't really think up anything else off the top of my head. You can look these bands up on Wikipedia or something and read about their specific style of music and if you like it, hit me up on AIM and i could send you a few samples of their music.

    Something to get you upbeat...well ska of course! Bands like The Forces of Evil, Suburban Legends, Reel Big Fish, Rx Bandits, and The Arrogant Sons of Bitches. Another good band that is sort of like what Constantinos is talking about (I think) is Bomb the Music Industry!, they are a great free band from Long Island.

    I am from Long Island and have seen BTMI! (Bomb The Music Industry!) live about 3 times and ASOB (The Arrogant Sons of Bitches) over 20 times live, once i saw them 3x in just one weekend when they where in tour and i was basically a roadie. I don't think he would be into that kind of stuff though since he wants harder stuff, even though both have hard sounding songs like "Brian Wilson Say Smile AKA my Beard of Defiance" by BTMI! or "Pornocracy" by BTMI! but i don't think it would be his style. Rx Bandits is too mellow for him if he gets the newer albums and the older albums would be way too ska. Reel Big Fish, Suburban Legens, and The Forces of Evil would be too pop-ska for him too i think.

    I still suggest hard electronic stuff like i suggested earlier. Hit me up on AIM and i can get you some samples of these bands.

    Lucky. I wish I was in the scene to much. But yea I guess maybe if they like the harder stuff, that pop ska isnt the best.

    Dream Theater - Octavarium, Images and Words
    Pink Floyd - Pulse (good collection)
    Mr.Big- Big Bigger Biggest (for the ladies, there are a few racy tracks in there)

    Special Mention* MC Hawking- E=MC Hawking.
    This a completely computer programmed voice of Stephen Hawking rapping to some cool beats (all sampled from old skool stuff).

    Yo, a lot of people been askin' what the Hawkman's all about, this one's for you.

    Verse 1
    "E" stands for energy, yo that's me,
    I'm a brilliant scientist and a dope MC.
    Before you step to me I'd think twice G,
    I'm the Lord of Chaos, King of Entropy.
    You down with it? I mother****in' hope so,
    'cause if you're not, I got a mother****in' rope yo!
    I'll string you up, from a big-ass tree,
    with a sign round your neck that says, "Wack MC".
    There ain't another mother****er hard like me,
    I'm a universal constant, I'm a singularity.
    Got Doomsday at my back with fat-ass tracks,
    he pumps funk in the cracks and cuts wax with an axe.
    So listen up bitch, 'cause there may be a test,
    my style is smooth, but it's hard to digest.
    My science is tight, rhymes faster than light,
    like a ton of TNT I'm about to ignite.

    Chorus
    E=mc,
    E=mc Hawking!

    Verse 2
    I explode like a bomb, no one is spared,
    my power is my mass times the speed of light squared.
    Hoes on my tip, 15 bullets in my clip,
    my hand rests heavy on my pistol grip.
    Doomsday cuts it up like a Shaolin monk,
    pumping the funk in your junk-trunk punk.
    There's no escaping here, I'm gonna beat you out of shape,
    like a ****ing black hole even light can't escape.
    Got the mind to bust a rhyme to make your brain bleed,
    other rappers talk ****, but they gotta concede,
    that I'm a 3 sandwich eatin', super-model meetin',
    step to me punk and you're gonna get a beatin'.
    So listen up bitch, 'cause there may be a test,
    my style is smooth, but it's hard to digest.
    My science is tight, rhymes faster than light,
    like a ton of TNT I'm about to ignite.

    Chorus

    Trash Talk
    Break down!
    Ah yeah, that's right, E=mc Hawking mother****ers!
    God damn, that was some stanky-ass funk.
    Somebody open a mother****in' window.
    Yo Doomsday, take us out.
    *PS, check out the lyrics to "All my shootings be drive-by's"

    Hey sweet, someone else from Omaha!
    I'm planning on the same drive to chicago later this summer. I'd go for some Blue's Traveller, John Denver, Bob Seger, Lynyrd Skynyrd, or something like that. For driving across Iowa, it's necessary to have some sort of themed music

    Amorphis-Eclipse. I could listen to it over and over and over and over... You get the point. Its a great album. They finally pulled it back together and produced a winner.

    Actually if you want something more chill and not heavy or bouncy at all post-rock would be your best bet as a musical genre. Bands like Mogwai, Godspeed You! Black Emperor, Explosions In The Sky, A Silver Mount Zion, Set Fire To Flames, Fly Pan Am, and others in that genre would be perfect for you. A band like Isis is basically a metal band but has a very strong post-rock influence which you might really like.

    This man knows his stuff!

    However, GYBE! for driving? GYBE! is more like reflective music and would really negate the whole 'travel' mood.

    Mogwai definetely; much of their music has nice rythyms and at times can be really exciting.

    Explosions in the Sky only if you're driving with a few friends. I find explosions in the sky good when 1) you want to relax and listen to amazing instrumentals 2) for background music when your chillin' with some friends.

    If I had to go on a traveling road trip with me or some buddies, I would choose: Bob Dylan, Radiohead, Cassidy (you need a little rap !), Sigur-Ros, Beck, Jeff Buckley, the Violent Femmes and maybe Nick Drake if you have laid back folk rock friends.
    We're no here.

    Kittie, Fear Factory, American Head Charge, Slayer, The Beatles, old school Snoop Dogg, old Three-3, more Kittie, Black Dahlia Murder, a little Nonpoint, and you should be set!

    BTW, If you're driving from Orlando, that's NOT going to be an 8-hour drive. It takes me about 6 or 7 to get to Orlando from Atlanta.
