Songs that mention import cars

Janis Joplin - Mercedes Benz and Porsche

Eagles - Hotel California - Mercedes Benz

Beach boys - Dead Man’s Curve - Jaguar XKE

Maren Morris—80s Mercedes

Joe Walsh—Life’s Been Good—Maserati.

And I assume the OP is asking from an American perspective. Because if you’re German most of those aren’t imports.

Or maybe just from the perspective of whoever the singer of the song is.

Nitpick: Jan and Dean

Springsteen - Pink Cadillac - Honda & Subaru

In college I had a roommate one year who liked to listen to rap. In one of the songs he listened to the rapper mentioned driving around in his “Isuzu jeep”. I remember that because it always annoyed me, because an Isuzu is by definition not a Jeep. I know he probably just worded it that way because it rhymed, and was using “jeep” as a generic term for any 4x4, but it still bothered me. Unfortunately I have no idea who the artist was or what song it was… but there was some rap song from the 1990s that mentioned Isuzu.

Kanye West - Gold Digger - Hyundai, Benz, Datsun

Maybe Gimme the Loot by Notorious B.I.G?

Man listen, all this walking is hurting my feet
Ooh money looks sweet
In the Isuzu jeep

Sir Mix-a-Lot - Baby Got Back - Mercedes

Allan Sherman - “Shticks of One and a Half Dozen of the Other”

Oh the moon is bright tonight upon the car wash
So I’m having my Volkswagen washed again
But the way things go with me, the way my luck is,
Just as soon as they’re finished, it will rain

Wango Tango - Ted Nugent

You got to pretend your face is a Maserati
It’s a Maserati
It’s a Maserati
It’s a gettin’ hotty
It’s a Maserati, Maserati, Maserati
It’s a fast one too man, that thing’s turbocharged

Royals - Lorde

We’re driving Cadillacs in our dreams
But everybody’s like
Cristal, Maybach, diamonds on your timepiece
Jet planes, islands, tigers on a gold leash
We don’t care

'92 Subaru – Fountains of Wayne

Too many T. Rex songs to mention.

Sir Mix-A-Lot: Testarossa


The Nissan Sharona car from the early 1980’s had the WORST jingle ever.

Chuck Berry Jaguar and Thunderbird.

David & David: Welcome to the Boomtown, (car: Porche)

“Ms. Cristina drives a nine four four
Satisfaction oozes from her pores
She keeps rings on her fingers
Marble on her floor
Cocaine on her dresser
Bars on her doors
She keeps her back against the wall
She keeps her back against the wall”
