Rock Music Makes You a Bad Driver

One thing I love to do when I’m heading down open highway on some cross-country trip, is crank up the classic rock. You know, the really good stuff — like Bruce Springsteen or Guns N Roses.

Apparently I’m not alone. As promotion for for the release of racing videogame called “Burnout Dominator,” Electronic Arts and AOL have asked voters to choose their favorite driving music, and out of 1,700 votes, classic rock is by far the most popular choice.

But, while it’s great to get revved up by kick-ass tunes when you’re pretending to drive, on real highways, aggressive driving isn’t exactly rewarded.

For the life of me, I can’t find the poll results online, but according to this Reuters article, artists you should be especially wary of while racing down the Interstate are: Meat Loaf, Bruce Springsteen, Guns N roses, and Motorhead, along with more contemporary groups like The Killers, Feeder, and the Prodigy.

Next time you get a ticket for driving like a rockstar, don’t say I didn’t warn you.
