1. Highway to Hell, AC/DC
One of AC/DC’s most famous songs, Highway to Hell features lyrics that are all about the grueling nature of life on the road. Released in 1979, the song spent almost a year on the German Singles Chart, while also topping the charts in many other countries. It has since become one of the most famous rock anthems of all time. It is the opening track of an album of the same name, the last one recorded before lead singer Bon Scott died from over-drinking. Not only is this a great road tune, it’s one of the most requested funeral songs as well.
