Nobody gonna take my car, I'm gonna race it to the ground
Nobody gonna beat my car, it's gonna break the speed of sound
Ooh it's a killing machine it's got everything
Like a drawing power big fat tires everything

I saw Deep Purple in 1972 I think it was - right around the time or just after Made in Japan came out. All I remember is loud and intense and amazing. These guys were really something in their day.

Man, Made in Japan has kind of spoiled me. I'm so used to the break-neck pace of the live version. Still a great song.

How can't this band not be in the hall of fame

Dear Ritchie, Thanks for everything, including my outfits! Signed, your friend, Yngwie.

Tremendously great song with one of Ritchie Blackmore's best solos ever with the Bach progression and outstanding plectrum wielding, not to mention the epochal tone from his Strat and Major. Has to be in the very top solos of anybody at any time.

Great song from a GREAT album

Hiway Star is representati v e of some of their best work, much of which can be found on the "Machine Head" album. If you're looking for authentic and unapologetic Rock 'n' Roll, that album made it into just about everybody's collection in the '70's. Still holds up very well.

it's a great song by deep purple hope to listen it the whole song

I doubt that ems77 has even heard the Metal Church version. How can one not like it?
Both are classics though.
Report as inappropriate
No doubt, the Made In Japan recording is the premier version of this song - far better than the studio version.
(Metal Church? Uh...yeah, ok. Ooo boy. Egad.)

Rarely does a cover top the original and this is no exception. Metal Church did an excellent version of Highway Star, but it is not better DP's. IMHO, Deep Purple's best ever effort at this one is on Made In Japan.

Metal Church's version of this song is much better.
