The Return of Name That Tune

After a several month absence, welcome to a new edition of name that tune. Hopefully this will be a nice distraction for your Monday. Lyrics from five songs are listed below. Your challenge is to name the song title and artist. Please try not to search the internet for the answers. Either you know the songs or you don't. Good luck!

1a. Out on the road today I saw a deadhead sticker on a cadillac
A little voice inside my head said, don't look back. you can never look back.
1b. Out on the road today, I saw a black flag sticker on a cadillac
A little voice inside my head said, don’t look back. you can never look back.

2. I'm dope on the floor and I'm magic on the mic
Now why would I ever stop doing this
With others makin' records that just don't hit
(Full disclosure here: I thought the first few words were I go four for four and I’m magic on the mic)

3. I know that you're gonna have it your way
Or nothing at all
But I think you re moving too fast

4. And just like fashion it's a passion for the with it and hip
If you got the goods they'll come and buy it just to stay in the clique

5. Oh can't you see me standing here,
I've got my back against the record machine

Nicely done, Amy.

4) Walking on the Sun - Smashmouth

1b) Some cover of "Boys of Summer"

Steelers are kicking SERIOUS Raven ass right now!

We now have all five answers, although I'm curious to see if anyone knows the artist for the "Boys of Summer" cover. It's only a few years old, and is an excellent version of the song.

The Steelers do look great. I'll have more on the game tomorrow.

I think that's The Ataris. They played that song during fan fest weekend at the All-Star game that the chicago White Sox hosted. All of the MLB mascots came onto the field and started to dance.

Thanks Nick for correctly answering 1b. I think these songs may have been too easy this time.
