Songs To Crash Your Car To.

You know how some days you just need to put your foot to the floor and run off the road? Well, if these songs don't put you in the mood for destruction, you'll at least have an awesome soundtrack for your disappointment.

jenny was a friend of mine - the killers. [here]

with a dark guitar riff running straight through the heart of the song, brilliantly playing up its dual nature, the lyrics tell of either a failed romance, or possibly a more sinister event. 'there ain't no motive for this crime, jenny was a friend of mine' - is this a metaphorical analysis of a break up, or a literal plea of innocence? the wonderful Killers leave this decision in your hands dear reader.
[On a side note, there are other songs in this tale - Leave The Bourbon On The Shelfprecedes Jenny Was A Friend Of Mine, and Midnight Show concludes the story.]

st jimmy - green day. [here]

an instant classic, it's Green Day at, essentially, their most psychotic. anyone who's ever seen the video or even caught a live show will recognise the expression of insanity to the point of demonic possession which accompanies it (in the very best sense of course.) try not pressing your foot flat on the accelerator when this track is blasting through the speakers.

makes me wanna die – the pretty reckless. [here]

sick of tweens from tv shows putting out songs thinking they're rock (yes i mean you miley cyrus.) don't give up just yet. sultry and wanting through the verses, with a kicking chorus which will resonate with anyone who has ever had contact with another human being, this song almost dares you to show that wall just what you're made of.

tell that mick he just made my list of things to do today - fall out boy. [here]

this song is just plain angry, with the legendary line 'let's play this game called 'when you catch fire,' wouldn't piss to put you out.' let's face it, we've all been mad enough to crash through bridge barriers, and this song is those feelings burned into your consciousness every time you hear it.

it's not a fashion statement, it's a fucking deathwish - my chemical romance. [here]

any old school my chem justifies a high speed drive through darkened streets, but this song cuts through where other songs might fuck around to bring you rage, love, and epic guitar riffs - what more could a girl possibly ask for when writing off their wheels?
