Cranking some tunes on the way to Sturgis? We have some suggestions.

Last Updated by Kent Osborne on

There are many catagories of "biker music"... those songs and playlists that mention motorcycles and some that are genuinely enjoyable while cruising down the road on two wheels.

South Dakota Public Broadcasting's Kent Osborne has his playlist loaded and is ready to roll. Here's a small sample of some of his favorite riding music (Parental Discretion is Advised):  

Hot Rod Heart - John Fogerty YouTube
Fat Bottom Girls - Queen YouTube
Stone Cold Crazy - Metallica YouTube
Awake and Alive - Skillet YouTube
Mas Tequila - Sammy Hagar YouTube
L.A. Woman - Billy Idol YouTube
Brick House - The Commadores YouTube
Cocky - Kid Rock YouTube
Tom Sawyer - Rush (Z-Trip Remix) YouTube
Ain't No Rest for the Wicked - Caged Elephant YouTube
This Life - The Forest Rangers YouTube
Son of a Preacher Man - Tina Turner YouTube
AC/DC - Various  (Currently War Machine) YouTube
Saint Jimmy - Green Day YouTube

What's your style? Classic? Country? We'd love to hear your suggestions for the ultimate cruise to the Black Hills.
