When asked to list 20 Road Trips Songs, I felt like just sending through two Zeppelin albums or (What’s the story) Morning Glory?, plus a few extras but that’s no fun," says the band's Nick Cousins, who compiled the playlist. "So here is my list (in no particular order). I apologise to my band members in advance for a couple of these ones. Some guilty pleasures..."
