About this playlist
Picture the scene: you’ve burnt a million miles on your journey to escape reality. You’re out in the boonies, as far from other humans as you can possibly be. It’s just you, the open road, and your favourite tunes.
And then you break down.
Out in the middle of nowhere, miles of desert surrounding you, and no way of getting help. It’s going to take all your brain-power and a shit tonne of luck to get out of this mess before the vultures come a’calling. But that’s all part of the fun. After all, adversity is part of the adventure, right?
Fortunately, you don’t have to brave the desert with an inadequate playlist. We’ve clubbed together more than 30 of the filthiest heavy rock, metal and Americana tracks to soundtrack your excursion through the wilderness. Accompanied by the likes of Black Rebel Motorcycle Club, Eagles Of Death Metal, Band Of Skulls and Kurt Vile, you’ll have pretty much all you need to survive.
Just pray your water supply doesn’t run out.
