Coldplay is ideal for work road trips because almost everyone in the car will know them, yet it also creates a platform for you to jointly ridicule the one person in the car who still doesn't. From there the convo can segway to more obscure indie music like The Shins or pivotal alternative films like Garden State. At the end of the ride, the old people will feel cool and more connected to the younger people, and that's what Coldplay's all about anyway, right? Viva la Vida is out June 17th.
