Getting a driver’s licence is an important time in a young person’s life. It signified independence, maturity, and no more carpools with your mom in the front seat jamming out the greatest hits of the 60s.
“No, I don’t know who Sam Cooke is, Mom!”
Once you can drive, you get to choose the music!
But, being a licensed driver comes with some major responsibilities. Once you’re allowed to drive a car, you also have to make sure to take care of the car. That’s why companies like Discount Tire are so important. They make sure that your sweet ride is well-equipped with the best wheels out there. With over 900 stores across the U.S., it’s hard to miss them!
In 2010, they hit their 50 year anniversary and haven’t slowed down since. If you’re a big car enthusiast, you might be happy to hear that they’re proud sponsors of NASCAR Nationwide Series and Monster Energy AMA Supercross!

I didn’t have an iPhone or an iPod at that point (did cars even have AUX or USB ports?) so I had to rely on the original playlist – a mix CD. Below are the songs that I was busy cruising to when I was 16 and driving for the first time:
