Living in Vegas for 10 years up untill recently it cost $400 on up to see a show. It cost a thousand or more to see Madonna. I cant pay that much even for my beloved Genesis. The most I paid was $400 per seat for Reba. That was pushing it.
Yeap long gone are the days when back in her ''Like a Virgin'' tour in 1985 with Run DMC and the Beastie Boys opening up was only $15.00 .

As for $400 for Reba.......where's my popcorn and Urban Cowboy flick .

How many here can say that at least one time in their life were they siting in a doctors office, standing in an elevator or shopping in a department store and have not heard this great song by The Cars playing over the speakers: "Drive".

Love The Cars early songs as mentioned by many. Seems they changed in the 80s though as most good bands did in that era. But Drive was and still is a great tune. The video was great as well.

Their first album is my all-time favorite debut album by anyone!

My favorite band of all time!!! Loved The Cars (debut) and Candy-O albums. I think my favorite song is Nightspots (the faster version) followed by Moving In Stereo and Candy-O.

I was a senior in HS when they debuted and I played their first two cassettes to death in my car. Had all the vinyls up until they split.

Didn't care for the song Drive. Too schmaltzy for my taste. I was all about the faster paced, eclectic sounds they had.

Have to admit, after being all stoked up to see the Cars in concert, their first tour after the debut album was horrid!!! They couldn't recreate the studio enhancements and they sounded like a garage band that can't find work. But, the next three or four times we saw them, they were terrific!

When the Cars came out, my friends' older brothers were listening to them. My dad is a generation up. He's more of a Stones/Pink Floyd guy.

Too soft and tame to be punk. Too weird to be rock. They were one of the quintessential New Wave bands.
