Weezer cover The Cars’ ‘You Might Think’ for ‘Cars 2’ film – video

Band put their twist on 1984 track for animated adventure

Weezer have covered The Cars‘ 1984 song ‘You Might Think’ for the new Cars 2 movie.

The band are joining the likes of Robbie Williams and Brad Paisley on the the film’s soundtrack, which will be released on June 13. A video of the geek-rockers recording ‘You Might Think’ has been released online – watch it by clicking below.

In an interview with Rock Daily Weezer guitarist Brian Bell said: “When we really dug deep into the song, we saw the genius of the arrangement and how all these relatively simplistic parts worked together to create this amazing fabric of sound. The song is going to play in the scene where Lightning McQueen and Mater go to Japan, which is great for us because it sort of mirrors our experiences in Japan – there was a little bit of culture shock.”
