Ten Worst, Most Morbid Songs to Listen to While Riding Your Bicycle

Not sure if you all saw last week, but Dwyane Wade and Gabrielle Union rode out Miami's Critical Mass. The popular ride is usually like a mile long (or so it seems), but the addition of these two fancypants cyclists proves that South Florida is 100 percent bike-tastic, and D-Wade is totally the coolest Heat player (get on a bike, Udonis!).

Broward County is booming with bike events too. There are biweekly bike polo games, pub crawls, a Critical Mass, and even an upcoming bicycle awareness party, Biketopia, at America's Backyard.

All this biking and not enough lanes for cyclists leads one to think morbid thoughts at times while on two wheels. Sometimes the soundtrack to your biking can increase these terrible thoughts and anxieties. To help you avoid those moments, we compiled a list of songs you should probably never listen to when on the seat of a bike.

10. The Smiths - "There Is a Light That Never Goes Out"
This is the absolute worst song to listen to on your bike. It is also totally the best video about biking, ever.

Reasons you shouldn't press play on this ditty while cycling are:
1. It has the power to make you weep, and tears will blur your vision, something necessary for safe riding.
2. It's about theoretically getting hit by a bus.

9. Jim O'Rourke - "Ghost Ship in a Storm"
It only figures/That I'd ride my bike/Into wet cement/And as I'm sinkin'/The last thing that I think/Is did I pay my rent.
This song isn't about getting hit by anything but rather just disappearing into the ground while on a bike. Trippy. While biking, don't trip on psychedelics either, but definitely listen to anything else by Jim O'Rourke.
