Traffic Jams: Channel Batman On Your Drive Home

Super hero movie soundtracks shouldn’t play only in the theater

Don’t be modest. Even though you leave your cape and spandex uniform at home, we know that you do battle twice or more a day on the highway and emerge victorious (or at least, without having to call your insurance company). These soundtracks were originally written for superheroes of the cinema, but we think they will work ever better as a score for you, the superhero of commuting:

Batman: The Dark Knight

When merging onto the 10 during rush hour, pretend you’re behind the wheel of the Batmobile.


By hour two of your drive to work, your X-Man power is extraordinary patience.

The Avengers

Channel Iron Man, the Black Widow, and the Hulk to smash (metaphorically) through walls of traffic.

Captain America: The First Avenger

Where the 405 meets the 101 is the land of the free, home of the brave, road of the miserable. ‘Murica!

Thor: The Dark World

Sometimes slugging through traffic is the equivalent to clashing with an intergalactic villain. Just tell yourself: it’s hammer time.
