So me and my buddies are making the drive down from Boston, and I'm trying to put together the ultimate playlist. I'm definitely going heavy with Bonnaroo artists, but am obviously going to use other bands. The playlist is starting off with Roadtripping by the RHCP, but i need help for the rest. It's a 19 hour drive... List away my fellow Rooers!!
They were better headlining before the new album like the ought 6 show where they played In Rainbows.
The '12 show had 6 songs from In Rainbows: 15 Step, Weird Fishes/Arpeggi, Nude, Bodysnatchers, Reckoner, House of Cards

Definitely featuring some Roo acts past and present. I have a rule, though. The FIRST two songs on any road trip mix I make have to be, in order, Bob Seger's Turn The Page and Whitesnake's Here I Go Again.
Another trick I've picked up over the years of road-tripping is movies. The actual movies are fine if you're travelling with others, give them something to watch, but in my solo trips, I've got software that will extract the audio track from any DVD you have for conversion to WAV, MP3, Vorbis, whatever you use. Tommy Boy has been a staple for years.
Aside from that... something about Tom Petty is extremely suitable as driving music.
