Lynyrd Skynyrd Referenced in the Movie ‘Cars’

One of Lynyrd Skynyrd's most popular songs is 'Free Bird'. Hearing someone scream 'Free Bird' at concert, a ball game or a movie theater has become almost a cult phenomenon. It has also been done many times in movies and my all-time favorite example of this is from the movie 'Cars'.
