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.

    […] If you’re interested in my take on these wonderful films over the years then go here, for my take on the superb soundtracks go here. […]

    Ok I really need an explanation for this one the right on western songs can not be found no matter how hard I look, I have been searching for a three straight days. I need answers, I even went back to watch the movie for the soundtrack credits, is the band gone if so there music would still be around right? Please I need an explanation where can I find them.

  10. pcoletti on December 28, 2016 10:08 pm

    Ethan, I had the same problem. I really loved those tracks and spent ages trying to locate them and the band. It’s a while ago now but I think the furthest I got was some info on page 8 or so of the search results which mentioned that the band was an occasional project in Cali and one of the band members was related in some way to someone on the original DT Cali dvd.

    These are the only tracks of all the DT music I haven’t been able to listen to digitally. A damn shame seeing as they’re both great covers.

    I remember a song that if I remember correctly was at the end of the drive thru caribben with andy irons, it was like reggae I never found this song, it’s none of those on the list.
