Chevrolet starts countdown to 100 birthday, teams up with Pandora to introduce channel play songs with ‘Chevrolet’ mention

2011 Chevrolet Centennial

Chevrolet is celebrating its 100 years of Chevrolet and has started the 100-day countdown to November 3 birthday with launch of Centennial Experience at Chevy100.com. The brand is also celebrating its 100th birthday in other ways.

Chevy has teamed up with Pandora to introduce a dedicated channel and Top 100 Chevy song list playing the Top 100 songs mentioning the brand. Among them are “American Pie” by Don McLean, “Crocodile Rock” by Elton John, “Little Red Corvette” by Prince and “Tim McGraw” by Taylor Swift (hit the jump for the complete list).

Chevrolet will also celebrate the countdown to its 100th birthday on November 3 by encouraging its customers and fans to tell their Chevy stories, vote for their favorite Chevrolet cars and trucks, and take the birthday party to their communities with the help of Chevrolet and its dealers.

“Chevrolet has sold more than 200 million cars and trucks around the world, and Chevys have touched the lives of countless owners, families, and fans,” said Chris Perry, vice president, global Chevrolet marketing and strategy.  “It is fitting that we mark our Centennial by recognizing these connections and celebrating Chevrolet’s role in peoples’ lives.”
