I've been wanting to resurrect this for a while, and now Jon mentions The Pretenders' Middle of the Road (which he left out of his list above).

Guess what else was left out: Rockin' Down the Highway by The Doobie Brothers! How's that possible? Here are some of my other picks:

Down By the River - Neil Young
Born on the Bayou - Credence Clearwater Revival
Heartbreaker/ Living Loving Maid - Led Zeppelin
Timebomb - Beck

I'm Bad, I'm Nationwide - ZZ Top

Reelin' In the Years - Steely Dan

Road Expense - Dixie Dregs

Elephant - Tame Impala

Jessica - Allman Brothers

Angry Eyes - Loggins and Messina
