The Soundtrack to an Epic British Columbia Motorcycle Trip

Before I embark on any motorcycle trip I create a Spotify Playlist for the journey. I love when I hear a song years later and it reminds me of a place and time. I could often close my eyes, have the track turned up loud and I see the sights and smell the smells. Takes me right back to where I was.
So as usual, before I left for BC I threw together a short playlist of 25 songs. The airplane rides (12+ hours round trip) gave me the most hits for the songs as I didn't have my Sena headset in my helmet while riding. The trip was being filmed by the amazing 6ix Sigma crew and we were in need of taking direction along the way for the shots, therefore, I didn't want to be audibly distracted.
My playlist isn't for the weak. Most would probably make a smart ass comment about it and I don't care : ). Listen... until new artists of todays world actually put out music that doesn't sound awful, then I'll actually retire the bands I've listened to for the past 15 years. Bands like Bayside, Say Anything, The Starting Line, Anthony Green/Circa Survive/Saosin, the Dear Hunter, Four Year Strong will be found on this playlist along side jammers from Moose Blood, The Dangerous Summer, The Front Bottoms, Petit Biscuit etc. BUT WAIT THERE'S MORE... Just when it couldn't get any weirder... I sure do have a thing for the worst rap you could possibly listen to. The raunchy radio rap. Drake, Lil Wayne, Nicki Minaj, Waka Flaka.
With that said, ENJOY the 25 song playlist I curated for my trip to British Columbia.
PS: For posting purposes, I asked Chris to throw together a playlist to share as well. It seems he went with 14 songs of a Buffalo/Cleveland theme. The majority of his music is just as terrible. Hardcore. So you are either loving one of our playlist and hating the other, or hating both. Decide for yourself. Here are the links. It's a quick drive to work playlist. Enjoy it and picture yourself riding your motorcycle down Route 16 in Northern BC with mountains on the one side and the Skeena River on the other!
