Queen of The Road

More than 75% of Brits cite Queen as the artist they like to listen to most while driving in their cars.

Tesco Compare surveyed some 30,000 motorists resident in the UK about what’s sitting in their glovebox at the moment, and published the results in an infographic which you can look at below.

As you can see from the map, Fred Mercury’s barmy army dominate, but there are strong showings as well from the likes of Adele, Madness and Coldplay.

Regional pockets of resistance to Queen’s dominance include a penchant for AC/DC and the Saw Doctors in Northern parts of Scotland, a thing for Sting on the Wirral, and an outbreak of Gerry Rafferty / Killers appreciation round Llandrindod Wells.

Even weirder, Slough residents enjoy nothing more than tooting their horn to Louis Armstrong — safe to say we didn’t see that one coming.

Here’s the top ten:

1. Queen

2. Adele

3. Madness

4. Coldplay

5. ABBA

6. Take That

7. The Beatles

8. Meat Loaf

9. Bon Jovi

10. Rihanna

Well, Steven King once wrote that every cassette tape left in one's glove box eventually becomes Queen's Greatest Hits... so this is no surprise ;-)
