This awesome muscle tank celebrates the new wave rock band the Cars and the shirt commemorates their 1984 Tour promoting the album Heartbeat City. The Cars first emerged on the music scene in the late 1970s, and they were right at the forefront of the musical trends of the early 80s, which combined the sounds of both guitar-laden rock and synthesizer-heavy pop. Heartbeat City was the band's fifth studio album and the first one released without the help of their longtime producer Roy Thomas Baker, who was also known for his work with notable musicians like David Bowie, the Rolling Stones, The Who, and Frank Zappa.
Heartbeat City wound up becoming the band's most commercially successful album, and it featured hit singles like "Magic", "Hello Again", "Drive", and "Why Can't I Have You". Another notable track to be released was "You Might Think", which earned the band the Video of the Year award at the first ever MTV Video Music Awards. Hearbeat City peaked at the number three spot on the Billboard 200, and after wrapping their 1984 tour, the Cars were one of the many performers to appear at the Live Aid concert at Wembley Stadium. Not long after that the group took a short hiatus in which individual members worked on their own solo projects.
The tag says medium but this shirt fits like a modern unisex adult small.
