    Well, let's be honest: Rock N Roll culture wouldn't be the same if it wasn't for the Automobile, not just because of the fact that they were chick magnets but also because many of us would be stars cut our teeth playing dumps and chicken coops after driving there in a worn down motor.

    And that car in the top picture, that's an Oldsmobile Rocket 88.


    Here's the Stray cats and their song about what is without a doubt the most sung about car brand ever.

    There's just something about that name "Caddilac" I don't know, just the name has that attitude to it.

    Here's the Beach Boys sing how much "Fun, fun, fun" a Ford Thunderbird is.


    When the eighties came around, the sound and the look of the bands had changed but the topics of their songs remained the same.


    But it wasn't just hair bands who got to it, guys like Tony Joe White also sang the praises of a good set o' wheels

    Yeah, there's very few songs about driving/cars anymore, it seems. Here's my own contribution:

    Oldiest goodiest cars:

    • "Hot Rod Lincoln" by Commander Cody & his Lost Planet Airmen.



    • "Beep Beep" by the Playmates.



    • "Stick Shift" by the Duals.

    It's about the car and racing, but also about the girl. (This song also kinda works as an acoustic solo thing too.)
