In 1978 music fans were broken into two camps: one that dug "new wave" bands like Devo, Talking Heads and The Cars and one that was into "mainstream" bands like Queen, Aerosmith and The Cars. 30 years later those lines have been blurred beyond recognition and the proof is on this CD. Bands of every style of music have come together to pay tribute to the Boston band and their first two classic albums, The Cars and Candy-O.

Just What We Needed also features two bonus tracks: covers of "Drive", originally on 1984's Heartbeat City, and "Emotion In Motion", found on Cars frontman Ric Ocasek's solo album This Side Of Paradise.
