Drive Thru Soundtracks

This page accompanies the main Drive Thru page which you can find here and lists the soundtracks on each Drive Thru. Note, the information is gleaned from the DVD release’s main feature and excludes the bonus clips. As far as I know the tracks are listed here in the order in which they appear in the film.

If you’re watching DT on Fuel or ESPN or some Extreme Sports Channel then the track listing may differ because these cable channels edit the films for release or may air them in parts omitting certain sections for the audience. My advice — buy the DVDs, trust me, you’ll watch ’em again and again.

  20. CJ says:

    there i was one track in Drive Thru South Africa that I missed getting a look at the title of. The band sounded a lot like Modest Mouse (and may have been) but it wasn’t “Ocean Breaths Salty” as written on the list. Sorry for giving a lame explanation but if anyone could help me out that’d be great.

  21. CJ says:

    No worries. I got it. It was “Falling Out” by The Sammies. Wicked song, check it out.

  22. Josh says:

    Looking for the song featured in DT Europe when Slater is leaving and Pat meets Kiwi (the guy that works for hurley) while driving the RV in France. It’s also in DT South/Central America when Ozzie and the crew are surfing a little offshore left in Chile? The vocals are by a chick or at least it sounds like…I’ve been looking for this track everywhere and can’t seem to find it!!

  23. Josh says:

    Oh yeah, I saw it on fuel TV….

  24. Matthew says:

    Huuuuge props for this list!

  25. hugo says:

    I.m going nuts..can’t find the song in the following clip:

    I’m 100% sure its in drive thru Europe at the end when Kelly has his last session in France with his mates.

    Please help me

  26. pcoletti says:

    No idea dude, but the credits at the end of that video give you a clue . . Chris cote is a musician who was in DT Europe … try contacting him directly. I think he was in a band called Kut U Up once.

  27. martie says:

    Dudes! In the first episode of the Europe trip, the first track by South “A Place In Displacement” isn’t listed on any other interwebs? But it is there just in case anyone is interested. And there is another track missing, the one right before the crews first surf session in Italy. Can anyone help out?


  28. Albert says:

    hey guys, there’s something i really like to ask, about a missing music in the Drive Thru Caribbean soundtrack, the reggae music in that movie. i dont know the tittle and the artist. but the song goes like this. “children crying all over the world” help me guys who know the artist and the tittle of that song, because my band would like to play that song. you can email in thank you so much. jah blees!

  29. pcoletti says:

    Albert, are you sure you’re watching the DVD? There’s no reggae on DT Caribbean as far as I can see.

  30. Eduardo L. says:


    Can you please tell me the name of the song and band in which is played on the drive thru Australia, on the special section of UNDERWATER on the bonus KM? THanks

  31. pcoletti says:

    Eduardo, the song is Fought and Won One by Reggie and the Full Effect.

  32. jonathan says:

    what is the song that starts with a guitar playing slowly?

  33. Tom C. says:

    This is great! Good job. There is one missing on South Africa – “Modern World” by Wolf Parade. It’s from a really good album by the way.

    Do you have any idea who performs the songs on the 2nd disc for New Zealand? I love that music.

  34. roberto g says:

    what’s the theme song on the beginning of every drive thru? when they show everybody’s names..

  35. Yoni says:

    Hey, Thanx So much for this track list! I can not seem to find “I wanna go out” by tangiers on itunes….ANyone know why?

  36. pcoletti says:

    Yoni, it’s probably ‘cos Tangiers are a small garage band with no muscle to get onto itunes. You can buy the album from though . . .to be honest though, the rest of the album ain’t that good.

  37. Ryry Rich says:

    yo anyone know what the title track to DT Europe is? rackin my brain tryin to find it

  38. benji says:

  39. benji says:

    the tangiers song is on itunes by the way. i just dnt wanna spend my last itunes dollar on it. so if someone tells me tht would b greatly appreciated

  40. Jon Thompson says:

    I have been trying forever to find the name of the song that is in the drive thru south central america movie. I am almost positive that it was a mars volta song but can’t find the name. Not sure if it was in the movie or just when they showed it on tv on Fuel??? Please help!

  41. pcoletti says:

    Jon, what are the lyrics? When in the film is the song?

  42. Jon Thompson says:

    It was during the part where they surfed the beach break in Panama. I saw it on Fuel but haven’t been able to find it again???

  43. pcoletti says:

    Jon, you’re thinking of My Chemical Romance, “The JetsetLife is Gonna Kill You” or The Von Bondies, “C’Mon C’Mon”, or Muse, “Hysteria” . . . all these tracks are around the Panama section and all are (kind of) a little bit like Mars Volta.

  44. august says:

    i tought that i could heard in drive thru australia some music of men at work..

    it could be true? or i’m a lil bit confused about that?

    i know the song but i don’t know what’s the name.

    all good to ya

  45. pcoletti says:

    August, you’re thinking of the opening theme to DT Oz I. It’s a cover of Land Down Under by Pennywise.(I think)

  46. august says:


    thanks bro, exacly this one.

  47. jon thompson says:

    No, unfortunately those are not the songs. I am positive it was Mars Volta. I have noticed that when fuel plays these shows they have changed the music for the TV shows. Some of the exact same episodes have different songs. I remember all three of those songs, but can’t find the Mars Volta one.

  48. Marco says:

    I try to find the name of a song in drive thru south centrala america plays in part the guys have batman clothes and starting ride in moto 4 whells and some guy drinking for the mask in face, some” it’s time to tell this place down” “ive come asking on my mind” please someone help me
