Anti-Snooze Tunes for Driving Late at Night

My love lives a little over an hour away. What are some songs/albums that can keep me awake on the long sad drive home?

Right now I've used up all my System of a Down albums. I like things that I can sing along with, think: The Faint, Muse...no death metal.

Thank you and rock on!

As I was trying to say, Radar Love.

These are all full on, listen-to-every-song albums (although granted two are collections of singles.)

Drive fast and play as loud as possible.

Modest Mouse:
This is a Long Drive for Someone With Nothing to Think About

Silversun Pickups:
Carnavas

No Age:
Nouns

The Misfits:
Collection 1

T.Rex:
The Slider

if you are interested in some good hard electronic german, I'm loving the current download from Chris Hope. Best set I've played in my car for years.

seconding radar love and recommending ca plane pour moi by plastic bertrand, very upbeat and sounds better than most coffee tastes

Jonathan Richman is sing-along-able and might work for you, if you don't mind the mood improvement side effect.
