    If you really want to be the best musician possible I think it is important to study as many styles and genres as possible. Never know what you might learn checking out something off your beaten path.
    Yeah, I see we are still talking about this even after I apologised. I forgot that not everyone has heard the music I have heard of so being self-entitled and whatnot, I went on the attack. Please forgive me internet.

    Also, I don't want nor do I care to be 'the best musician possible'. I just want to learn songs by artists that I like.

    And I still have my arms open for that hug of forgiveness... :P

    But I have discovered many new artists/bands thanks to Rock Band, Guitar Hero and Rocksmith so there's that.

    That was like some kind of a premonition (3 weeks before) . I'm on 1 premonition a year streak of 2 years now......altought i saw the Bachsmith coming like 4 months before it was release when most people were saying i was dreaming.

    The Cars's first release(eponymous) is a must in the rock genre and a sure buy for me.

    Scott Stapp is homeless, on meth, and thinks his wife and kid are members of ISIS.

    Definitely denying that hug for safety reasons lol.

    Wow, really? Usually for rockstars, its sex and drugs. Not psychosis... :/

    So yeah, no hug for him.

    Man, it's so weird seeing people in this thread and on the Riff Repeater comments section saying that "Drive" is The Cars's biggest hit and will probably be in the pack because I just listened to it and I don't think I've ever heard it before, whereas I can barely go a week without hearing "Just What I Needed" on classic rock radio. Apparently Drive was their highest-charting hit back in the day, so maybe this is an age gap thing, where Drive was everywhere back when it came out (before I was born) but songs like Just What I Needed get more radio play 30 years later? Or hell, maybe I've just missed hearing what is apparently a very popular song? Or maybe I have heard it before but forgot about it because I thought it was boring?

    Either way, I doubt that Drive will be in The Cars pack. Yeah, "Jane Says" was in the Jane's Addiction pack, but let's be real, as good as JA is, they don't have many radio hits to choose from, whereas The Cars have enough guitar-driven radio hits to fill at least two 5-packs.

    Completely agree. The Cars could fill two-5-packs with the first three albums . . .

    The Cars (1978)
    Candy-O (1979)
    Panorama (1980)

    Cant wait till tomorrow!

    Really hope "Touch and Go" is one of them. The tone and phrasing in the solo are just sooo tasty.

    Go have a listen if it's been a while, it's great!
