Most Influential Cars In Popular Culture – CarBuzz

The Chevrolet Corvette is once of the most referenced cars in music. Most of us know “Little Red Corvette” by Prince, and going back further in time, its mentioned by The Beach Boys in “In My Car.” However, it pops up across the board in all popular music genres. Pearl Jam gave us the hilarious lyric, “Sorry is the man who trades his soul for a Corvette, thinks he’ll get the girl he’ll only get the mechanic.” The Corvette also pops up in songs by Aerosmith, Kid Rock, Marilyn Manson, Bad Company, and Bob Seger. It’s not just old white guys that namecheck the Corvette; it’s mentioned in Sir Mix-A-Lot’s earworm “Baby Got Back,” as well as LL Cool J’s classic “Going Back To Cali.”

In fact, rap music has embraced the Corvette. 50 Cent raps “Vipe or ‘Vette, I tear up the highway,” but our favorite line comes from Curren$y, saying, “Nothing yet, jet threat, fools, you hear me / Talking top Corvette, ZR1 top speed.”
