Help me build a Spotify Playlist....  70's guitar rock

Looking for recommendations for good songs from the 70's- ish (southern rock-ish) that are great driving songs.  Looking for songs in the vein of Whipping Post by the Allman Brothers (I know '69), Freebird, Black Betty, etc...

thanks

Some of my favorites:

 

"Dreams I'll Never See" Molly Hatchet (Allman Brothers cover)

"Radar Love" Golden Earring

"Carry On Wayward Son" Kansas

"La Grange" ZZ Top

"Couldn't Stand The Weather" Stevie Ray Vaughan and Double Trouble

"What's Your Name?" Lynyrd Skynyrd

"Don't Fear The Reaper" Blue Oyster Cult

"Black Dog" Led Zeppelin

 

 

OK, the last two aren't exactly southern, but they're great driving tunes.  Same could be said for "Radar Love", but . . .

Damn, lots of great suggestions here.  I need to take notes.

EDIT:  Point Blank was one of the first "big" bands I ever saw.  I remember the bassist had a target on his guitar, a la later era Zak Wylde.

"Never Been Any Reason" is a great choice.  My dad and uncle would rock that Head East album whenever my uncle would come home when I was growing up.  Gets played at least 3x a day on Midwestern classic rock stations.

Yeah, we're running a little bit hot tonight
I can barely see the road from the heat coming off it
I reach down between my legs and
Ease the seat back

Yeah, back in high school (early 80s) there was a cover band in our area that played all the current hits, but they would always end their dances with either "China Grove" (that would be good add to the list too) or "Never Been Any Reason".

The Black Crowes is southern, but their music is 80’s & 90’s.  Having said that, “Hard to Handle” & “Jealous Again” are worthy of your consideration.

Find a Hard to Handle by the Dead circa ‘70-‘71.

Lot of great stuff to go through, thanks for the recommendations and keep'em coming.

If you're going to go Petty, a different choice would be Mudcrutch...

Man, this thread led me down through a couple of internet surfing time sucks, but this live long version of Another Man's Woman by ARS, with Paul Goddard's amazing bass solo made it all worth it:

 

You've got to love a band that has a lead bass and two lead guitars!

Didn’t see this mentioned already but Roll with the changes should def be on your list. Probably my favorite driving song. Richrath’s solo at 4:04 is as 70s guitar rock as it gets, plus you get a bad ass B3 solo
