The Cars performed a medley of their most beloved hits during the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Induction ceremony this past weekend in Cleveland, Ohio.
The band opened with “You Might Think,” “Moving in Stereo,” which originally appeared on their 1978 debut album and “Just What I Needed,” their first ever hit. On all three songs, Weezer‘s Scott Shriner played bass in place of the Cars’ co-founder Benjamin Orr, who died in 2000.
The Killers‘ Brandon Flowers inducted the band into the Rock Hall earlier in the evening.
“It’s certainly a wonderful feeling to be accepted by peers and [when] you see the people that are in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, who gets inducted, it’s a positive feeling that you get,” Ric Ocasek told Rolling Stone. “I think it’s kind of a big thing for me and the band. I know Ben would have been flipped out by it. … It’s certainly a very positive thing.”
