Man, his music was like life's soundtrack growing up in the 70s and 80s. I bet I didn't go a week without hearing a Cars song my entire adolescent life.

Yep. They're right up there w/ Rush, Journey, Foreigner, Styx, R.E.O. as my high school life soundtrack.

On that note, I'm so looking forward to this year's Stranger Things house at this year's Halloween Horror Nights at Universal. At the end there's a huge Mind Flayer puppet that takes like three people to operate. It's in the Scoops Ahoy shop.
