Songs to listen to... IF YOU WANT A SPEEDING TICKET Vols. 3 - 9

Credit for this excellent idea goes to Michael Celly, a Weblogs, Inc. programmer who told us that back in 1999 he and his friend Jon Stone produced a mix CD called Songs to listen to... IF YOU WANT A SPEEDING TICKET, Vol. 2. We're not sure what happened to Vol. 1, but Vol. 2 is venerable cornucopia of late Nineties rock (see track list after jump) that would make any right foot feel heavy. The Autoblog staff was suddenly bit by the music bug, so after the jump you'll find our collection of Songs to listen to... IF YOU WANT A SPEEDING TICKET, Vols. 3 – 8. Each list is our own personal mix tape of tunes, any song of which raises our chances of being handed a speeding ticket by a factor of 10.
Compiling these lists has been enlightening, as each volume says a lot about its author (four Def Leppard picks, Joel? Really?). Because I had never heard of 90 percent of the tracks my fellow bloggers chose, we decided to add sample links for nearly every one so you can click and hear for yourself what gets our motors running. We hope you submit your own Volume of Songs to listen to... IF YOU WANT A SPEEDING TICKET in the comments. Enjoy...
