Truck manufacturer DAF has launched DAF Trucker Trackers, nine playlists on music hosting website Spotify that have been compiled by and for truck drivers.
Drivers can add to the list by filling in his or her favourite track(s) on the special DAF Trucker Tracks website.
The DAF Trucker Tracks already reveal a wide variety in musical tastes. Roel Koppers, social media specialist at DAF Trucks, said: “We get a lot of rock, country and pop songs and have split those genres up into separate lists like classics, hardstyle, dance and Christmas songs.
“I’ve encountered a whole new world full of German Schlager music, Portuguese fados, Irish pub songs, Australian rock, Italian rap and French chansons. And today someone sent me a track by the Mediaeval Baebes. Strange but terrific too!
“Most of the songs are well known, however. Dire Straits, AC/DC, U2, Volbeat, Metallica, Tony Justice and Armin van Buuren are obviously very popular with truck drivers.”
