You've Never Felt Agony Until You Listen To Jacques Villeneuve's Album

Canada, we need to have a talk. I love your Timbits with every strawberry-glazed fiber of my being. I do not love your music. It's bad enough when you foist the likes of Celine Dion and Justin Bieber upon an unsuspecting world. It's even worse when your Formula One drivers decide to release an album. » 3/14/15 2:26pm 3/14/15 2:26pm

How Bob Marley's Long Lost Land Rover Was Rescued From Certain Death

Reggae legend Bob Marley's 1977 Series III Land Rover pickup was almost as cool as the man himself. Yet it spent some thirty years waiting in vain for somebody to stir it up and satisfy its soul. See what I did there? You should also see this beautiful restoration video and how happy the truck made Marley's kids. » 2/09/15 1:27pm 2/09/15 1:27pm

See The Evolution Of The Shitty Music At The Honda Civic Tour

We get a lot of flak at Jalopnik for sometimes ragging on Honda and Acura because their cars aren't quite as enthusiast-oriented as they were in their 1990s and early 2000s heyday. I'm about to rag on Honda for an entirely different reason: the music at the Honda Civic Tour has been, and continues to be, terrible. » 6/12/14 10:30am 6/12/14 10:30am

Why You Should Never Listen To Ride of the Valkyries While Driving

Watching the hands on a clock tick will feel way, way different depending on the situation; trying to frantically write something on deadline with five minutes to spare ain't the same as desperately willing a conference call to finish more quickly. It turns out that music can have an… » 2/02/14 12:00pm 2/02/14 12:00pm

Volkswagen's New App Creates Music Based On Your Driving Style

Have you ever noticed that how you drive is often based on what you're listening to? Softer music can make you a more cautious driver, while loud upbeat tunes make you more aggressive. But with this new app from VW it's the other way around. It generates music in real-time based on how you already drive, so your… » 11/26/13 9:40am 11/26/13 9:40am

Mercedes Releases Epic Innuendo-Laced Song For Its Service Workers

I don't know if this is single-handedly the greatest song devoted to service center employees ever, or the worst (hint: it's the worst). The five-minute-long epic is laced with gross and heavy-handed innuendo, and at the end you're just sort of left with gnawing questions that you don't want answered. » 7/27/13 3:09pm 7/27/13 3:09pm

NASCAR Drivers Recorded A CD In The '80s And It's The Best Thing Ever

When you think of Dale Earnhardt, you think of Talladega. You think of championships. You think of his nickname, "The Intimidator." But you don't think of him as a country music superstar. You should, and that's because he sings on a long lost 1983 album, along with other NASCAR drivers. It. Is. Amazing. » 4/17/13 2:17pm 4/17/13 2:17pm
