Awesome songs to race to...

If you're old like me, you remember a movie Beverly Hills Cop 2.  Anyway, there's an awesome song in it to listen to while you chase down those racing punks!    

   
Anyone have any other good cop/racer songs?

Kavinsky's Testarossa Autodrive works nicely :-)

It's funny, I feel different racing games require different sorts of music, depending on their attitude.  Hot Pursuit feels more like this :

When I play Blur I listen to Daft Punk, and Need For Speed I'll put on a Motörhead or Gamma Ray album.

This one is for when you really need a bit of extra oomph.

Of the songs on the soundtrack, I can only seem to race well when either "Sofi Needs a Ladder" by deadmau5 or "Shining Down" by Lupe Fiasco are on. 
 
However, I have found that custom soundtrack mix of Demon Hunter, Unearth, and Sikth work pretty well.

Any stuff from the Initial D soundtrack is cool (as long as you are not weeaboophobic :P) 
 
Then there's the obvious classic ones we all know like Radar Love, Don't Stop Me Now, Born To Be Wild, etc.

I am a just starting to become a fan of Girltalk, and if you don't know who that is, he is a DJ that mashes up songs, mostly newer rap with rap songs:
  

    
  
And his new album All Day, is 1 hour and 10 minutes of mash ups that flow together, so you can just turn it on and not worry about changing songs.
