Music sample

"Be Quiet and Drive (Far Away)" is the second single released from the American alternative metal band Deftones' second album, Around the Fur. It was their first single to chart on the US charts, peaking at number 29 on the Mainstream Rock Tracks chart,[1] and in fiftieth spot in the UK Singles Chart.[2] Though it was a more modest hit than the follow-up, "Change (In the House of Flies)", it was included in the game Dave Mirra Freestyle BMX released in 2000. An acoustic version appeared on the soundtrack to the film Little Nicky which featured Adam Sandler, star of the movie, and Jonah Matranga of Far. This version was also included in their B-Sides & Rarities album.

A video was filmed to accompany the single's release, directed by Frank W. Ockenfels III.[3]
