Red Line is the fifth full-length album by Trans Am, released in 2000.

The track "Let's Take The Fresh Step Together" uses a timestretched sample of the default Windows 98 startup sound.

The track "Diabolical Cracker" was used in the Joseph Kosinski-directed Gears of War 2 trailer, entitled "Rendezvous", that debuted during E3 2008, with a shortened form of Alan Seeger's World War I poem I Have a Rendezvous with Death recited alongside.[3]
