A collection of great driving tunes can help any journey feel that bit more enjoyable, so here are three epic driving songs for you to enjoy with thanks to MSL.

A good driving tune needs to have a have a good fast tempo, a banging baseline and a few shouty lyrics thrown in for good measure too.

So, for this week’s Switch on, Drive off, we have John Grant’s thumping ‘Black Belt’, Northern Ireland’s Two Door Cinema Club with the chiming ‘The World Is Watching’ and a classic from 2002 with The Vines’ ‘Outtathaway’.

All that’s left to do now is to sit back, strap in, switch on and drive off…

John Grant – ‘Black Belt’

Two Door Cinema Club – ‘The World Is Watching’

The Vines – ‘Outtathaway’

LISTEN: You Must Be Jokin’ with Aideen McQueen – Faith healers, Coolock craic and Gigging as Gaeilge
