Radar Love


I had a massive playlist running today while playing a few racing games and Golden Earring's Radar Love came on. I forgot how amazing this song was and it actually helped me out in the race I was in. For anyone who doesn't know, Golden Earring is a Dutch band, and the song has been considered a quintessential driving song. Its been covered by many different bands. I'll post a couple different versions from different eras, just because this song is that good :D
Oh, and that crazy looking thing in the picture is a 1970s era radar detector, named Fuzzbuster 2000. I felt it fit the theme of the post!

White Lion

Ministry & Co-Conspirators 
(2008 metal cover, and is rather good if you like metal)

  2. I'm so sick of the police. As soon as I get some cash I'm buying a dash cam and a radar detector. Hell, I may as well get a Saiga 12 while I'm at it.

  10. I love this song, one of the few I never get tired of.

    Also my grandfather still has one of those old Fuzzbusters in his garage just for kicks. I didn't know what it was for years.
