    Someone once asked me.

    ..... Is your accelerator somehow connected to the volume on the stereo???? Truth is i often have moments when the only way to release tension is to crank it up & just drive!! I love it!! :-)

    Driving Seems To Be A Great Stress Reliever!

    Have you ever blown a speaker in your car from listening to your music too loud? Gotten dirty looks for the genre in which you are listening to? I have.. Just about every day I drive! I try to not be an ******* in my every day life, and I'd say I have succeeded with that goal...

    When I Am Alone

    I like to turn up the music and sing along when I am alone in the car.

    Cranking It Up!

    When I am in the car the radio is usually blaring, and I am singing along at the top of my lungs! Sometimes I think I embarrass my two kids with my singing, my air guitar, my drumming on the dashboard! But oh well...if they don't like it they can walk right? Lol I just love the...

    Especially When I Really Like The Song

    It's easy to tell just how much or how little I like a certain song can all be told in the volume of the radio at the time. the more I like a song the louder the radio gets.

    I turn it up as loud as possible, makes me actually feel more relaxed because it absolves me from having to the do the obligatory "pulling over".... I always get where I going ... Cause I never heard the sirens. (**zenzenzend**)

    It's Part of My Alone Time

     It doesn't matter what I'm listening to, I have a lot of favorites and I'm just as likely to drive around with Pantera blasting out of the speakers as The Kinks or The Beatles. If I'm alone in the car the stereo will be cranked up high enough to rattle the doors and windows...

    I Like It Loud Too

    I too love to drive with the music blasting. Its pretty much the only time I can listen to music that loud. I live in a house with 2 other other apartments so I really cant do it at home.

    Honestly, sometimes I want other people to hear

    my music. I love my music and I want you to know this awesome stuff I'm listening to. If I'm driving on city streets, I might act on any possible excuse to keep my windows down. But I discovered recently that I keep the bass so high that it travels pretty far even with the...

    Driving is so relaxing sometimes

    that having the music blaring is even better. It's an escape from the crazy drivers and the bad things going on in your life

    I crank it up to Pearl Jam,

    RHCP, Smashing Pumpkins, Weezer, Green Day, etc.. Especially when Nirvana comes on. I have no idea what Kurt was singing about, but I feel like it is pure, so I sing/scream to it. I listened to a lot of alternative rock when my mom drove me to grade school, so I get powerful...

    Opposite Effect

    I love cranking it up really loud when I'm alone in my car and rocking out like a madman. What's funny, is after a little while, it actually starts to put me to sleep. Blaring heavy metal music is stress reducing, apparently.
