Hard to argue with "Radar Love", that's like the archetypal road song.
But for me -- and this is odd 'cuz I've never been a big Doors fan -- it's gotta be "Roadhouse Blues". I think because the first time I heard it in its intended context was when I was trying to drive solo from Brooklyn NY to Ft. Lauderdale FL in less than 16 hours so I could meet someone who worked on a cruise ship and would only be on land for two hours that day. So somewhere in the middle of Georgia at 3:00AM, totally ganked out on coffee, chocolate, and Jolt cola, I'm flipping channels on the radio and suddenly Jim Morrison comes screaming at me
"KEEP YOUR EYES ON THE ROAD AND YOUR HANDS UPON THE WHEE-UL!"
...and suddenly it all made sense. (The tune, not the road trip.)

"200 Miles" by Cowboy Junkies. Just don't listen to it at 1 am or you'll fall asleep.
"Mrs. Potter's Lullaby" by Counting Crows. It just sounds like cruising across the wide open plains at 85 mph.
I've got a ****load of music I like to listen to on the road, but my favorite has to be Kashmir by Led Zeppelin.

"Let us hope our weapons are never needed --but do not forget what the common people knew when they demanded the Bill of Rights: An armed citizenry is the first defense, the best defense, and the final defense against tyranny. If guns are outlawed, only the government will have guns. Only the police, the secret police, the military, the hired servants of our rulers. Only the government -- and a few outlaws. I intend to be among the outlaws" - Edward Abbey
