It’s a good thing American insurance companies don’t commission these sort of polls — you don’t see the folks at Blender hawking cheap policies, do you? From the Daily Mail :
Meat Loaf’s “Bat Out Of Hell” was voted the number one driving anthem in a survey of more than 2,000 motorists, it was revealed yesterday.
However, the song was unlikely to awaken the speed demons. The survey, by Saga Motor Insurance, found drivers who listened to blues numbers were most likely to be caught speeding.
And comparatively mild country songs were the next most likely to induce drivers to speed, followed by reggae and hip-hop, and then classical.
According to the poll 49 per cent of those who listened to blues and 45 per cent who tuned in to country had committed a speeding offence.
Runner-up to Meat Loaf in the in-car charts was Queen’s Bohemian Rhapsody, with Steppenwolf’s Born To Be Wild third and Queen’s Don’t Stop me Now fourth.
