In the 1980s, specifically around ’83, there was a bit of a mania for ATVs, specifically three-wheelers. The three-wheeler, however, was shown to be dangerous and was quickly replaced by its more surefooted cousin, the four-wheeler. But before the big, loud, motorized tricycle was yanked from the scene it would be immortalized in at least two iconic videos of the decade:
Tears for Fears, “Everybody Wants to Rule the World”
Big Country, “In a Big Country”
Would have been cool if ’80s Bob Dylan had jumped on the bandwagon—then we could have had The Three-Wheelin’ Bob Dylan.
If you know of any other three-wheelin’ videos, lemme know.
