The Rules

Everyone has road trip rules, but bands have a special set. Being stuck in a van or bus for weeks with the same people and all of your crap.

Inspired by this list, I've collected even more rules from all sorts of groups.

Have any of your own? Send them to

Here's what they have to say:

»Chinese food is never a good idea. [Little Brazil]

»There is no room for Deli Express sandwiches on the food pyramid. [Little Brazil]

»Febreeze. (See above.) [Little Brazil]

»Do purchase granddaddy’s road sodas for long treks through the backcountry (i.e. beer for driving through the western half of Montana). [Little Brazil]

»Toilet paper: When nature calls and bathroom attendants are on strike, it’s up to you to provide for the family. [Little Brazil]

»Some bodily functions are unavoidable. But please, roll down your window. [Tim Wildsmith]

»Bring your own listening material! [Anniversaire]

»Don’t do a cover of the band you’re opening for. [Anniversaire]
