  • Best music while working on cars?

    last time working on my bug i had to listen to a little old fm radio on which 1 station worked, and i didnt feel as happy working on my car then normal.
    we all have those favorite songs and best driving songs, but what do you like listening to while working on you (or someone else) car?

    a few of mine:
    im more than happy to help you with questions about nearly all volkswagens
    So what do you want to do, lift it up and throw it in the ditch?
    Cars:
    HI THERE!! : )

    1999 VW new beetle 2.0, so its basically a MK4 gti

    I don't mean to sound cliche, but I honestly find all of Moog's work from MCM to be the most appropriate music while I work on the car. I don't know - it just puts me in the mood.

    Sometimes, I find that if I'm not in the mood to work on the car but I just happen to throw on some good 'ol Moog, I'll be in my work clothes crawling under my car before I know it xD

    Current obsession is definitely 'Forced Induction'

          Always puts me in mind of uprating some piece of machinery, then revving it up and heading out on the track...
          SF5 Turbo, Pentax cameras, some of the best driving roads in the world are 20mins away.

            Both kinds of music.

            Country and Western

                  Any kind of old rock music from like the 30's all the way through to the 60's/70's. Love The Beatles, Status Quo, Split Enz, ZZ Top, some more modern bands like RATM, The Black Keys, Dropkick Murphys, Gorillaz, even Daft Punk and Lily Allen. I have quite an unusual broad taste in music...

                      i'll listen to eminem , korn, system of a down, metallica, lamb of god, radiohead, linkin park, gorillaz, ministry, the beatles, or skrillex.
                      And bands of a similar ilk.

                        I pop my pandora on Jimmy Buffet radio and call it.
                        Might venture onto Led Zeppelin radio.

                            Throw on a bit of Mötley Crüe of Judas Priest usually gets me pumped up enough to want to achieve something mechanically.

                            I just set up the old iPhone and put it on shuffle lol
