We lost an icon this past September with the passing of Ric Ocasek.
How cool was the music of The Cars? Well, have you ever seen Ric Ocasek? He married a Czech supermodel. That’s how cool the music is.
The Cars was a band that was the soundtrack of a generation. Their first record, inarguably one of the best debut albums of all time, stayed on the Billboard charts for 139 WEEKS. They were voted "Best New Artist by Rolling Stone in 1978. They won Video of the Year for "You Might Think" at the very first MTV Video Music Awards. And what teenage boy of the 80s can forget Phoebe Cates stepping out of the pool to "Moving in Stereo" in Fast Times at Ridgemont High?
We’ll do all The Cars tunes you could want, and then we’ll add a couple more. You’ll get full servings of angular & incendiary guitar leads, space-age keyboard sounds straight out of 1982, and vocals filled with attitude & snark. And we will bring back all your synth-pop 80s dreams, just like Ric Ocasek would want us to.
