The Cars

The Cars raced out of Boston in the late-1970s to become America's leading new wave band. With frontman Ric Ocasek's off-kilter vocals and an emphasis on tight, melodic songs, the band appealed to both classic rockers and fans of edgier fare. The quintet's eponymous debut was an instant classic; its opening tracks - “Good Times Roll,” “Just What I Needed” and “My Best Friend's Girl” - were each successful singles. But deeper album tracks like “You're All I've Got Tonight” and “Bye Bye Love” also reached heavy rotation on radio, driving the album to multi-platinum sales status. With its hook-filled songs, THE CARS is a musical landmark that remains compulsively listenable.

Thanks, Ric. Hope you enjoyed the ride as much as we did.
