Hey! Shift transmission to "Drive", tie a brick on the gas pedal, turn the volume to "turn brain to tapioca pudding" and try out...
Ramblin' - Marshall Tucker Band
Lazy or Highway Star - Deep Purple
Shin Kicker - Rory Gallagher
Jeff Beck - Freeway Jam
Hocus Pocus - Focus
Low Rider - War
Southbound or Trouble No More by the Allman Brothers...
There's millions more, but the stompin', steady groove is what matters, and some of these posts are great music, but not road songs.
The solution is to hold parties and make "Mix-tape" CDs for yer ride, with friends - young and old - naming favorites; from unlikely sources great suggestions will, f'rinstance, Glenn Miller's "In the Mood" is great driving music, as is the William Tell Overture(AKA the Lone Ranger theme).
So, pick out a time, buy CD blanks (and refreshments of preference) and call up your friends(and tell 'em to bring Roadsongs)!

Commander Cody And His Lost Planet Airmen - "Hot Rod Lincoln"

A good driving song that's nothing like "Radar Love"...

Canned Heat - "Going Up The Country"

I found out this weekend "Metastasis" by Naked Raygun is AWESOME for driving on the Reagan/O'Hare tollways. Also, big thanks to Top Gear, "20th Century Boy" by T. Rex is a BRILLIANT song to drive to, ignoring how Bolan went out (I know, it's as ghoulish as having La Bamba and Alive as an in-flight double feature, but it's still a great song). I'm also a big fan of "Having an Average Weekend" by Shadowy Men on a Shadowy Planet, better known as the theme to Kids in the Hall.

And if one shares my latent white trash tendencies: "East Bound and Down" by Jerry Reed ("Fred, don't look.")

Pete Townshend does a nice version of "On The Road Again" in his live concerts and there's a decent drone in there like runnaway monks lookin' for love....
