This is Berzerkeley Single version of Roadrunner, right? I've always thought this version is way better than the one off their first album. RADIO ON!!

Yup, sure is -- and I agree, I like it better too. I forgot to mention that. And The Judybats, that's a cover of the Gary Numan classic, natch.

Regardless of how you feel about the band, Phish's "Contact" is one of the all-time great tributes to one's car. And wtf two lists and zero Beach Boys?

What about Neil Young's tribute to his old car, "Long May You Run"? It would have been a perfect fit on yr playlist!
