The Bottle Rockets -- '1000 Dollar Car'

Traffic sucks, so why not start your morning off with some music? You provide the toast and we’ll provide the jams.

With the triumphant return of Hoon of the Day, I can think of several good reasons to buy a thousand-dollar car. Of course, none of those involve daily transportation, and all of those have a high likelihood of vehicular carnage.


Woe be unto you if you’ve got a thousand-dollar car that doesn’t work, though. That’s no fun.

This song? The Bottle Rockets’ lead singer Brian Henneman told American Songwriter that it was the result of buying a butt turrible ‘77 Chrysler New Yorker. Enjoy the fruits of his misery.
