Planet Rock and Jaguar XF reveal the Ultimate Driving Song

Planet Rock and the new Jaguar XF have teamed up to find out once and for all just what is the ultimate driving song.

Throughout the summer Planet Rock listeners were asked to vote for the songs that they love to listen to in the car, and by the time the poll closed today (Friday 14 Oct) more than 22,000 song votes had been received.

The one song that gets people revved up more than any other... Radar Love by Golden Earring.

The Dutch band’s 1973 sole hit single won the Ultimate Driving Song poll by some margin, easily beating the likes of hard rock luminaries AC/DC, Deep Purple and Motörhead to the top of the charts.

1. Golden Earring - Radar Love
