How about some trucker music:
Drive-By Truckers

Trucker Mixes: 1 - 2 - 3

And no trucker post would be complete without the CB lingo

Man, that poem's way too serious. Can I submit my own?

Drivin' my eighteen-wheeler

Got naked chicks on my mud-flaps
Confederate flag 'pon my net-backed cap
I ain't got time to take a nap....

Cuz I'm drivin' my eighteen-wheeler

Pocket full of crystal meth
Tequila and jerky on my breath
I'm twenty tons of speeding death...

I'm drivin' my eighteen-wheeler

Runnin' over Geos, don't give a fuck
Each thirteen miles I make a buck
Be it Peterbilt or a Mack Truck...

I'm drivin' my eighteen wheeler

Ufez- I suppose your poem furthers certain trucking stereotypes, but it's hard to fault it because it kicks so much ass.

18 wheels? Child's play! Want to see some real trucks?

Thank you, Frank.

The truckers RAWK!

I saw them live, at a little joint in South St. Louis, and the club owner brought a bottle of Jack to the band, and after they were done with a shot each, the bottle was passed to the front two rows.

For those of you with um, file sharing, check out "Eighteen Wheels of Love", a surprisingly touching story which is a propos to the current thread.

They also have a double-disk album out called the Southern Rock Opera which explores the mythology of Southern Rock (it's about a fictional band called Betamax Guillotine, after the rumor that Ronnie Van Zandt - the leader of Skynyrd - was beheaded by a VCR when the plane crashed), and about the mythos of the South itself - including George Wallace, Bear Bryant, and airborne Oldmobile 4-4-2's.

Vidiot, thanks for posting the C.W. McCall link. I was trying to remember the story about how "Convoy" was related to Manheim Steamroller. I can't think of any commercials now that could spawn a movie and a concert tour.

Sweet holy Rubber Duck...

Vidiot, just took your link to the CW McCall page - and they have all the songs that aren't on the best of CD's! I don't even have the vinyl any more, and now I'm in hog heaven.

Shit, I've just been outed as a CB redneck. ;)
