Car Musicks Compendium v. RAWK Music

I am so pumped for this mix. I think it's by far the most ambitious project I've undertaken, and -- by the luck of some deity -- is the best mix I've ever made.

The idea came out of need. I have a 4 hour drive to make this weekend, and I wanted a non-stop rockathon that would require absolutely no switching or decision-making on my part. My only qualification was that all songs would have to sound really bitchin' going around the curves on the interstate.

This mix crosses several genres of rock music, from classic rock to hard rock to piano rock to alt rock to punk rock and back. It's pretty diverse, and I love the way it transitions and comes full circle. I don't know where else you'd find a mix that contains U2, Papa Roach and The Eagles and Guster...

DISCLAIMER: This is definitely not something you want to listen to if your mom is in the car -- unless she's a super cool mom who doesn't mind the occasional f-bomb.

Without any further ado, I give you 70 songs; 4 hours, 18 minutes and 20 seconds of music that will rock your face off and carry you through the curves:

Hah. I know, right? I had to cut myself off at 70 songs too, because I had a bunch of songs I wanted to download and put on here. Heh.

My original plan was to create 6 MP3 disks with 60 songs on each. I just get carried away...

I tend to get carried away with this kind of thing, too. :)

I'm thinking that this would be a great workout mix, too. I usually swim when I work out, but I'm trying to switch things up a bit and alternate swimming with cardio machines, so I definitely need good music!

Also I drive 8 hours a week to and from work, so this will definitely find it's way into my car.

One day, he will bring about world peace. On the threshold of war, world leaders will stop and spontaneously Carlton-dance and bunnies will hop and birds will tweet and children will hold hands.

BWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAAHAAAHAAHAHAHAHA!!!

Oh God, if only. Seriously, I think you're on to something. Obama could end the war if he busted out the Carlton-dance.
