Here's my favorite song from The Brave Little Toaster - Worthless - without the cuts back to the Master's house.

Comments from Youtube

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.

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

Alice OfSherwood : This better be how Cars3 ends

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

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

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.

hako : I became a mechanic because I don't want this to happen to my car. True story.

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.

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

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

WhiteFangofWhoa : Younger Viewers: Oh my LORD, that incinerator scene in Toy Story 3 it actually makes my heart hurt! Me: That's adorable. Watch this instead.

Mosin54R : grown ass man and this still bothers me

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!"

GrandSilver : The older I get the more this song hits home

peter file : lets all gather around the camp fire and sing songs about assisted suicide and depression in a kids movie

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.

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

The Chaos Dragoness : Sheesh, it's only when you look back on your favourite childhood movies after years of not watching them that you realize how dark some of these movies are. I'm surprised I survived my childhood mentally unscathed.

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."

metalman20 : man just like everyone else i have never realized how dark and depressing this song/film was.  it just goes to show that as you grow older, you realize that not everything is as light and heartwarming as you thought as a kid.  man this movie is amazing.

Jupiter9099 : The darkness of this film flew over my head when I was little.

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.

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.

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.

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.


Emilio DiBenedetto : I totaled a car, just the other day. I couldn't help but feel sympathy for the car. That car carried me through some experiences. This is so moving. Respect to the things that carry us.

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?

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

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

AardvarkLord : Now that I think about it, this song is REALLY nihilistic.  All of these memories and experiences that these cars/people had, some of them had been through so much, one of them having seen a remarkable portion of a continent, but in the end all that happens is *crunch* "Worthless!"

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

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.

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

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.

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.

Arryn : that magnet is pretty effin scary

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.

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.

Schuyler Lakey : This movie cultivated a generation of hoarders

Gnomelord0 : So this is a song about depression, old age, and suicide in a Disney film, that...makes sense

starwarsnerd100 : Anyone else notice the car saying "I just can't-I just can't-I just can't seem to get started" is mimicking the noise of a car that won't start?

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.

Keith Pixton : I can't take this kind of pressure. I must confess, one more dusty road would be just a road too long.

whammo12 : Man, Cars 3 is really dark.

Revan498 : Ah, a song about giving up on life with a catchy tune as the singers are pulled inexorably to a horrible fate and killed on onscreen. You know, for kids!!

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.

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?
