Summer is coming up and, as everyone knows, a road trip is the absolute best way to spend a couple of weeks during the break. You need good snacks and good people for any successful road trip. However, the most underrated thing that you absolutely need for a road trip is a playlist. This playlist has to be so good that it hurts.
