The Ultimate Driving Playlist: Swap Road Rage For Road Rave

When faced with the ever-present "carmageddon," otherwise known as L.A. traffic, nothing keeps us from going full-on cray like our fave beats blasting from the car stereo. It’s almost like we don’t mind getting stuck in the parking-lot gridlock if we've got the sweet sounds of Florence making us belt it out in our ride. Almost.
And that's why we put together a playlist that might help make bumper-to-bumper traffic not seem like a total bummer. We’ve picked only the best upbeat tunes to try and help make the normally agonizing minutes speed by, and keep you from going all Britney-with-an-umbrella on the idiot that just cut you off. Peep the vids and the whole list below, or stream the playlist on Spotify.
