According to Britain's RAC Foundation for Motoring
Wagner is dangerous while driving.

The top five dangerous tunes are:

1. Wagner : Ride of the Valkyries
2. Giuseppe Verdi : Dies Irae from Requiem
3. Prodigy: Firestarter
4. Basement Jaxx: Red Alert
5. Faithless: Insomnia

So be warned! :angry:

Want to avoid accidents? RAC suggests the
Norah Jones "Come Away with Me"
"Mad World" by Gary Jules.
"Another Day" by R&B singer Lemar,
"Too Lost in You" by girl group The Sugababes
"Breathe Easy" by boy band Blue.

When I read the title, I thought you were asking for song names! And, I immediately thought "Prodigy." So, I wasn't too far off!

"Mad World" -- That song is good, but damn it makes me so depressed when I hear it.

Interesting article/study, though. :)
I got one to add.. my husband has received 2 tickets and been in 1 accident while listening to Corrosion of Conformity "Clean My Wounds".
"the green hornet" theme gets me riled up whenever i drive ... I LOVE IT B)

and i like norah jones but wouldn't "come away with me " be deemed DANGEROUS as it would cause the driver to FALL ASLEEP??
"No Mo Play In GA" by Pastor Troy

this song would make you want to commit vehicular homicide.
Anything by Crystal Method... That can either make me sleepy (such comforting, pounding bass) or make me aggressive. I don't see either being good for driving.
Hmmm. i could name alot of dangerous driving tunes, but i'll try to keep it small...

Cradle of Filth - Funeral in Carpathia (any CoF song would do the trick methinks)
Mudvayne - Dig
Otep - T.R.I.C. (the version off Jihad EP will kill you)
Ministry - Jesus Built My Hotrod (fitting title)
GlassJaw - Tip Your Bartender

The most dangerous song: The Offspring - Bad Habit

IMHO, the best music to drive to late at night is Sasha's Global Underground: Ibiza. Good ambient trance with enough uptempo to keep you awake.
