Shoe0nHead : i used to be TERRIFIED of this scene as a kid but listening to it now it's even sadder/creepier lool song about death and suicide in a kids movie. s'byootiful.

Master Leguichard : The final vehicle (the green pickup truck) seems to commit suicide. Notice how he flees the magnet with his own driving power, to get on the conveyor belt. And then does nothing to escape the crusher, even though he just displayed perfect driving ability. As if this scene wasn't already traumatizing enough.

AsCii_ : THE CAR COMMITS SUICIDE

billny33 : This song was deeply troubling to me as a child. But I trusted the judgment of this movie because of how sweet and likable the main group was (except for Kirby the vacuum but they needed a curmudgeon). I trusted that if they put a song in there, it wasn't "too dark for children." So I struggled through the terrors of "It's a B Movie" and told myself I shouldn't be scared by it, especially since my kid friends were bragging about watching Freddie Krueger and Child's Play and such. And I was being scared by the Brave Little Toaster? Get over it. And then this. Really? These cars with consciousnesses being crushed to death one by one, each too broken down to struggle and just accepting the end is coming, reminiscing on the best moments of their life before it gets snuffed out before an audience full of others knowing their turn is coming too? How utterly horrific. But again, I trusted their judgment so it can't be too dark for a kid's cartoon, right? I come back to see this as an adult and it's no easier to watch. It's worse.

Alice OfSherwood : This better be how Cars3 ends

Michael Wolfe : Ok, just to recap. We have a bunch of depressed cars getting the life literally crushed out of them singing about their many sad lives, and I'm pretty sure that green truck committed suicide by driving into the crusher. Is it wrong that this was my favorite part of the movie as a kid?

chesiregirl : It's made even darker when you look at the bite mark on the surfboard on the surfer's car. What if the surfer died in a shark attack and that's how the car ended up at a junkyard.

One Nerd95 : Compared to the B-Movie song from earlier in the film, this one is so much darker! B-Movie is basically cheep scares you expect to see in a theme park haunted house, while Worthless is about depression and the feeling of being...well...worthless. It's more real.

KristofferSaysHowdy : I'll share my interpretation: The First Car = The Exhausted Employee - "I can't take this kind of pressure." What happens to stressed workers that can't keep up? They're fired. Society considers them worthless for not keeping up. The Second Car = The Depressed  - "I just can't seem to get started." "Why can't you just be grateful? Come on! Snap out of it!" Are some of the responses our society has to offer to those suffering from depression, hence why they're considered worthless. The Third Car = The Drifters - "I got my kicks off of Route 66." In our society, you are not successful until you've planted roots in the ground, with a steady career path and a deed in hand. The drifters are worthless for thrill seeking instead of being practical. The Fourth Car = The Has-Beens - "So much for fortune and fame." Even those that were loved and adored by fans aren't immune to being worthless either. For example, a successful athlete gets a career-ending injury, they are dumped by their fans for someone that can compete. The Fifth Car = The Unmarried - "Kept forgetting his loneliness." "When will he/she settle down?", "Why can't he/she grow up?", "He/she is not getting any younger.", "Oh, he/she is still single? At his/her age?" Society applies pressure for everyone to couple up, those that wait too long or are unable are considered worthless. The Sixth Car = The Damaged Goods - "It's quite hard enough just living with the stuff that I have learned." What happens to those that experience trauma? They're either hopped up on pills or classified as crazy. The label of a mental disorder is the equivalent to being labeled "worthless." The Seventh Car = The Carefree Youth - "Once drove a surfer to sunset." Just like the drifters, the carefree youth spend days seeking thrills and casual romance and not focusing on being successful. If you're not focused, you're a worthless beach bum. The Eighth Car = The Elderly - "Who would believe they would love me and leave?" Ideally, parents take care of their children as they grow up, and in return, children take care of their parents as they grow old. However, some parts of our society can not be inconvenienced by their worthless parents and leave them in retirement homes. I love this song! I love this film! Best children's movie ever!

Jonathan Short : Cars carry not only passengers they also carry stories.

Ilikebats123 : A song about depression, last words, death and its inevitability? This is the darkest and saddest song I have ever heard! Now excuse me while I just lay here and die.

Mathenaut : That last car killed itself. Preserved what was left of it's dignity. Wow.

Mosin54R : grown ass man and this still bothers me

nerdieone1 : How many people think that the wedding car crashed & its driver died, only to be taken to the graveyard by the hearse? I've always wondered that seeing as those two are the only cars that are crushed together. Chilling.

Extra-Spoopy Horror Games : Who did the voice of the Hearse? His singing is fucking amazing. Also something I just noticed is that these cars are all super high end. A hearse? A Texan Wedding car? An indie 500 classic? A sweet muscle car? All these cars probably thought they would be top of the line, the best of the bunch, born with a silver spoon in their mouths so to speak. But now they're this. Worthless.

- I Am The Mudkip - : Is this...is this car Hell?

mysterymares : First time listening to the song, I just enjoyed the catchiness of the music and the singing. Second time, I actually listened to the words, and I honestly cried. I imagine that must be a crushing feeling (no pun intended). One day meaning something to someone and being worthless the next. I haven't seen this movie, but after hearing the depth and meaning behind this song, I promise I'll check it out.

IronManx70 : I feel for that Hearse. Imagine your whole life is moving corpses while having to hear what gruesome or tragic fate they suffered

Doctor O'Noodle : Everyone sees the magnet as a bad guy here... but anybody ever think that the magnet can't really leave and he's forced to hear these cars singing over and over and the singing eventually drove the magnet to insanity and eventually being the antagonist that it is in the film? He's probably thinking "DAMMIT CARS SHUT UP ALREADY!"

Draggobuttboi : "pardon me while i panic!!" *maintains a completely straight face and calmly watches the cubes go by*

TheIcefang : that magnet is pretty effin scary

Retro Revisited : Yes, the magnet is a bit evil. But put yourself in their shoes (sockets?) for a second - how long would it take you to get annoyed that your job is endlessly picking up cars that sing their tragic life stories?

DraikRoan : 1st car: Acknowledges his own worthlessness. His transmission must have something to do with it. 2nd car: Must've been used alot in a 50s-sort of drag race, but the car itself couldn't handle such. Her ignition must've went out, thus the owner deemed her wortheles. 3rd car: Was used as means back and forth through route 66, a now defunct highway. Original owner sold the car (for whatever reason), and the car itself had been bartered about throughout the southern midwest. The steering components having went out over too much use, his final owner deemed him worthless. 4th car: Was a good racing car whose owner often got 2nd-3rd place. His owner however couldn't stand always being dubbed second banana; thus, he blames his 'failure' on the car, trashing it and deeming it worthless. 5th car: Owner had anxiety's about being around other people (or his upcoming marriage if it was the groom), so he just turned around & went home. 6th car: It's a hearse; it speaks for himself. Do notice however the many similarities between it and the 5th car, including how this car was put on top the 5th. I predict two things: either the 5th car got into an accident, the hearse having to send the 5th's owner to a graveyard; OR (more likely), the hearse and 5th car had crashed at one point (likely on the 5th car's trip back home) - which follows the hearse's statement of sending a man to a graveyard (sending someone to his grave). 7th car: According to the sexual connotations of the "buns and weenies" line, the surfer - this car's owner - was a real player's man. On the car's way from Pico Blvd to Zuma Beach (look 'em up), the owner must've sidewined off a cliff (the car's hand in the lay of the land) and into the pacific. Take note of the bitten-off surfboard still on the car. It leads me to believe the owner died by the fall, his dead body eaten by sharks. Car could no longer drive, obviously, thus is worthless.   8th car: This truck is literally speaking for their owners. The truck's registered owner was a poor indian woman who was in a marriage with a deadbeat & poor indian man, a hopi, who worked at a reservation. The truck was likely registered under her name as the Indian man didn't have the credit to even get such a thing. Anyway, the woman eventually left him seeking better conditions and took the kids on a bus; however, cause she still hold affection for the hopi, she purposely left him the truck. The man, in a drunk fit of rage, chased after them with said truck and forcefully took back the kids, likely gunning his ex-wife in the process. An a desperate attempt to win back his kids affection, he took them to the 'skids' - i.e. a playground slide in this context. The hopi was happy, but his kids obviously weren't - calling their own dad worthless & perhaps a murderer. Having being shunned by his own children and cops quickly approaching, his own guilt finally comes to fruition of what he had done. Life over, and in despair of killing his wife at his hands, he chooses his own death rather than being judge by the government - bringing his gun to his head & offing himself. Notice how the truck sort of just drives on the belt on its own. The truck acknowledges he's beaten down & worthless to others, just like the hopi. Also like the hopi, he feels guilty for playing a hand to the death of his owner's. So, just like the hopi in ways, the truck drives on the belt on it's own and commits suicide.

Mason Quigley : This is lightyears better than "Let It Go"

Robbie Rotten : I can't take this kind of pressure I must confess one more dusty road Would be just a road too long Worthless I just can't, I just can't, I just can't seem to get started Don't have the heart to live in the fast lane All that has passed and gone Worthless (And there ain't nothing you can do about it) Worthless (Pardon me while I panic!) Worthless, worthless, worthless I come from KC Missouri And I got my kicks out on Route 66 Every truck stop from Butte to MO Motown to Old Alabama From Texarkana and east of Savannah From Tampa to old Kokomo Worthless I once ran the Indy 500 I must confess I'm impressed how I did it I wonder how close that I came Now I get a sinking sensation I was the top of the line, out of sight; out of mind, So much for fortune and fame Once took a Texan to a wedding Once took a Texan to a wedding He kept forgetting, his loneliness letting His thoughts turn to home and we turned I took a man to a graveyard I beg your pardon, it's quite hard enough Just living with the stuff I have learned. Worthless Once drove a surfer to sunset There were bikinis and buns there were weenies Fellini just couldn't forget Pico, let's go up to Zuma Pico, let's go up to Zuma From Zuma to Yuma the rumor was  I had a hand in the lay of the land Get up and go hit the highway (Oo-wooh...) I worked on a reservation (Ooh...ooh...) Who would believe they would love me and leave On a bus back to old Santa Fe? Once in an Indian Nation, I took the kids on the skids where the Hopi Was happy 'til I heard 'em say... "You're worthless."

Slick Vic : Picture these cars as human nursing home patients sitting in the lunchroom wishing their families would visit them. Instead of getting crushed, they get wheeled away by a staff member back into their rooms. Then you'll really understand just how dark and sad this song is.

Sanka Jones : One of the catchiest songs and one of the most depressing scenes in film history; a strangely complimentary combination.

BeefyLevinson : They may be cartoon cars, but this song makes me think of all the human wreckage I've ever known. This song is real talk.

Kai Mango : Imagine this with human characters. It would probably be in a hospiz, having various old and fatally sick people which are extremely depressed talk about how that accident, that illness or that incident doomed them, just with a heart monitor go beeeeep one after another.

TheBrainandBrawn : No wonder this song is tied with "Hellfire" for Disney's darkest song of all time.

RomanceFreak : Ok, let's see if I got this right: blue car: Just crashed or abandoned  pink car: just doesn't run anymore red car: Nasty crash while taking a trip on Route 66  race car: Crashed in Indy 500 race wedding car: crashed after a wedding hearse: crashed after a funeral surfer car: abandoned by the surfer (?) green truck: abandoned after breaking down

Daniel Jones : Smashes to ashes, and rust to dust.

Gaile Oxstain : This film traumatized me as a kid. But as an adult it makes me feel sorrow for today's heartless throw away economy and rampant consumerism.

TheOriginalTripleD : The last cars story's even darker than you think. The truck talks about "working on the reservation" and "driving the kids". Until way too recently it was common for Native children to be forced to go to Residential Schools (Indian Boarding Schools in the States). These schools rarely gave a good education, children were often used for cheap labour and beaten if they tried to speak their own language. Many of them were traumatized and later struggled to raise their own families or just function in day-to-day life as adults. I'm probably reading way too much into this, but I interpret the truck choosing to remain on the line (remember he could drive away if he wanted to) as him committing suicide over being unable to get over what he did to all those kids. Isn't nostalgia fun?

jorge gonzalez : I just noticed something...The little green car at the end, he could still move, he could´ve just driven away from the junkyard. But instead he drove right to his death. After suffering from the way his owners called him worthless, he decided to kill himself rather than to keep living like that... Damn, this scene is dark.

Luke Raven : Some of the people who worked on this movie went on to work for Pixar.

Paul Deddens : Yes, this song came from a movie about a toaster

Reemster : Replace all the machines in this song with people. See how terrifying it becomes.

Negative Hippie : Gosh, this is so dark for a kid's movie. Not to make the "cartoons don't challenge kids anymore" argument (cartoons are pretty deep nowadays!), but shit, this scene is dismal - where a simpler kid's show/movie would see the cars rescued and restored, what we ultimately get is the knowledge that the heroes got out of this bad situation, and that's it.

theartistisgod : I took a man to a graveyard.

Dark HeARTisan : Here's an interesting trivia: Even though the wedding car and the hearse each sings a different verse, it actually sounds quite similar as both are singing about taking a man to where he needed to be, so it is indicated that both cars were used by the same man they were referring to in their own individual verse (the Texan and the corpse). Which is why unlike the other cars, the wedding and hearse car were put on the conveyor belt where they were crushed together rather than one at a time. I learned this from a website of the song's lyrics.

Alex S : I just got into a stupid car accident and totaled my car. I emerged unharmed, but I wonder what dirge it would sing?

futuremovieactor : can you imagine if Cars 3 and/or Planes 3 took inspiration from this scene?

TheLunarLegend : WHY IS EVERYTHING FROM MY CHILDHOOD DEPRESSING!?

Mikey Patchy : In retrospect this scene is really brutal.

EclipseStrife : I have traced back my emotional attachment to machines to this video.  Sometimes I personify machines and feel genuinely sad when they are broken.

Otimo : I took a man to a grave grave yard part make me think that he is glad that he is going to die because he can't live with all the things he had learned since he was always moving bodies as a herse

Frederick Foote : "I took a man to a graveyard I beg your pardon it's quite hard enough just living with the stuff I have done"......thats one self loathing car man

556deltawolf : The funny thing is many dumps don't "crush cars into cubes" anymore. Most scrap yards nowadays just stripe the old junkers of any usable parts and then the rest gets recycled. Not to mention, I have seen completely wrecked and junked up cars get fixed and rebuilt like brand new.

SilentScreamLP : I just realized the message behind the song, having since rediscovered this masterpiece of a movie. No matter what we did, who we are, or how important we were, eventually we'll all be past our prime and, unable to do anything. We're all just gonna end up in the same place anyways, and we ain't coming back to retell our past. We all end up forgotten and, of course, "worthless".
