Music for a roadtrip

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting
Okay, let's say that tomorrow you have to go for an eight hour drive. You have to go alone and most of it will be on the interstates. The thing is you can only take four cd's with you. They can be any kind of music that you want, but you can't take any greatest hits. What four do you take?

LSD - Silent majority

Pink Floyd - The Wall (Not totally metal but hey... I can't see me without this)

Iron Maiden - Somewhere in Time

Queensryche - Operation: Mindcrime
Dream Theater - Metropolis 2/Scenes From A Memory
Testament - The Gathering
Children of Bodom - Hate Crew Deathroll

--that should pretty much cover both ends of the spectrum.

In reality, of course, I'd take mix-discs or just hook up my iPod - but for the spirit of the question, Im happy with those 4 choices.

Kiss - Double Platinum
Rush - Different Stages (Never discount a great Rush mix for a roadtrip)
Motorhead - Everything Louder
Fu Manchu - Go For It...Live!

well, as shroud said, in reality I would just burn a couple of mixes or plug up my trusty iPod, but within your parameters:

Led Zeppelin-Disk 3 of the Box Set or if that isn't allowed, then probably Presence

Black Sabbath-Heaven and Hell

Metallica-Ride The Lightning

Metallica-Master of Puppets

I would have two more laid back CDs for the beginning of the trip and two more thrashing CDs to keep me awake later in the trip :)

Tom Petty - Damn the Torpedoes

AC/DC - Highway to Hell

Van Halen - the first one

and the toss-up between:
Pink Floyd - Momentary Lapse of Reason... or
Stevie Ray Vaughn - Couldn't Stand the Weather.

I would probably have to pick 4 greatest hit CD's so I could have more tracks. 4 is such a small number when you have hundreds to pick from. :)

I guess this would be mine:

Ratt 81 - 91 Greatest Hits
Def Leppard - Rock of Ages
Motley Crue - Red White and Crue
Van Halen - Best of Van Halen Vol 1.

RUNNING WILD:PORT ROYAL
THE EXPLOITED:THE MASSACRE
SAXON:DENIM&LEATHER.

LOL Mark! :)

If I had to pick 4 discs. No Greatest Hits involved.

Whitesnake S/T from 1987
Def Leppard Hysteria
Guns Roses - Appetite for Destruction

Hey, that list looks kind of familiar ;)

Always a good question, and the answer changes day by day depending on mood. I need variety:

GNR: Appetite for Destruction
Iron Maiden: The Number of the Beast
Nine Inch Nails: The Fragile
Steve Hackett: Spectral Mornings

I've actually came close to having this situation before. This is a pretty one to do since it would change by next week and each thereafter, but I guess it'd go like this:

Chicago - III
Boris - Pink
Iron Maiden - Powerslave
Queensryche - Operation Mindcrime

Chuck, great pick on those Dwarfs!!!

Testament kicks ass! I love that song.

As for me, I've been listening to Morbid Angel, Turbo Negro, Down, Deadboy and the Elephantmen, Lamb of God and my own newly recorded stuff (analyzing you know).

KISS - Creatures Of The Night
Saxon - Wheels Of Steel
Queen - A Night At The Opera
Riot - Fire Down Under

Tough to only bring four but this could get me through a long drive.
