I found this meme. I agree with it.

But then after thinking about it a while, I couldn't come up with a song about a barracuda. Little GTO. Little Cobra. 409. Lots of songs about hot rods but I couldn't remember one about a barracuda.

 

Heart has a song called barracuda, but I just read the lyrics and it's not at all about a car.

And if you want to dance "The Barracuda", here's one you may have never heard of from 1965 :o

So now you know.  Had a frat brother who bought one (1964?) with a slant six and the humongous rear window and the girls just fell all over him / it.  He got rid of it within a year because it just didn't perform up to its image.  He ended up with a Volvo (? :o ).

This version got me a speeding ticket once upon a time while driving a Roadrunner in 1978.....such fun it was!

Well I now see why I could not come up with a song about a barracuda. That first song sounds like a car commercial. The next two apparently were released in the twenties, which is 50 years after the 1960s hot rod car thing. The song about the dance is so stupid it wouldn't have stuck with me, and like I said that last one by heart is not about the car.

 

But I wish to thank everyone for playing. ^_^

There is a song mentioning “Toyota”.

 

Everyday Struggle by Notorious B.I.G --

"Had to re-up; see whats up with my peeps / Toyota deal-a-thon had it cheap on the jeeps"

"But parked in her rickety old garage

Is a brand new shiny red super stock Dodge"

 

That's not a barracuda.
