Best 90s Road Trip Songs

April 13, 2015
Beach season is approaching once again: that magical time of year when the days are longer, the sun is hotter and the air just tastes sweeter. Load up the family, pop in your favorite funky-fresh mix tape and cruise all the way down to the Currituck Outer Banks of North Carolina.
Even thought most cars don’t have cassette tape decks anymore, you can still do things old school this year for your Currituck Outer Banks vacation. Treat your vacation like the pre-digital age with a playlist of 90s road trip tunes (flannel shirts and acid-washed jeans are optional).
Once you teach the kids what’s up, they’ll start to understand that the Macarena was all that and a bag of chips.
Here are our top 25 picks for the best 90s road trip playlist in chronological order. Enjoy the blast from the past on your way to the Currituck Outer Banks!
