More than 200 UK motorists have declared The Who's 'My Generation' as the best driving anthem of all time, according to a recent study.

 HiQ commissioned a survey to discover which track is the most enjoyable to listen to in the car, and Roger Daltrey and Pete Townshend's inimitable sounds were deemed the most popular amongst drivers.

Meanwhile, a separate poll to find the most popular album put Pink Floyd's 'Dark Side of the Moon' at the top of the charts.

In a top 10 singles list dominated by rock and indie related artists, Queen's 'Don't Stop Me Now' is second in the chart, with Steppenwolf (Born to be Wild) third, The Prodigy fourth (Firestarter) and David Bowie fifth (Heroes)
