​Top 30 Hits To Listen To When Riding Your Polaris Ranger

Since the dawn of rhythmic chanting to the tempo of rawhide drums around campfires and during rituals, humankind has had a fascination with, as well as a deep connection to, music. So it’s little wonder why countless riders have installed Polaris Ranger sound systems to liven things up while working with, riding in, or recreating next to their off-road machines.

All that some folks need to be happy is a full tank of gas and playlist full of old-school country and 80’s hair bands. Other Ranger riders have a more eclectic taste in music, one which jumps around from Hank Williams Sr. and Keith Whitley to Lil Wayne and Uncle Lucious. But no matter what you like, music is there to set the mood.

But just like how song preferences change from one person to the next, they might also change in a single individual from one moment to the next. A set of songs to get you in the mood while mudding or hill climbing may not be ideal for when you’re taking a trailside lunch break or having a beer at the campsite after a long day of riding.

It has been said that you can listen to tunes at home, and you should enjoy the sounds of nature and your engine while you’re in the field. To this, we say to each their own. And besides, there’s nothing stopping you from rocking out at home with your Polaris Ranger sound system. Whether you’re partial to hick-hop or a huge fan of pop-rock, here are our top 30 hits to listen to while riding your Polaris Ranger!

Best Ways To Jam While Riding

No matter what you like to listen to when riding your Ranger, it’s guaranteed to sound better from a proper sound system. Sure, a portable boombox or smartphone can play music, but the volume levels and sound quality will be lacking. Simple plug-and-play solutions are Polaris Ranger sound bars like those by BossEcoxgear, or Rough Country. But if you really want to rock, the Polaris Ranger audio kits by Rockford or MTX Audio offer multiple speakers for surround sound, amplifiers for extra power, and subwoofers for unmatched bass! By all means, listen to nature or your new exhaust from time to time. But for the rest of the time, tune in and have fun listening to the aforementioned 30 hits or anything else in your Ranger with the appropriate off-road sound system!
