You can thank Budweiser and Mitchell & Ness for bringing back the Detroit Pistons‘ horsepower logo.

On Wednesday, the beer company released beverage cans featuring vintage designs by the sports apparel brand known for its throwback NBA Hardwood jerseys and hats.

The Pistons are one of 24 teams across the league to get their own can as part of “Throwback NBA Buds,” featuring retro graphics to “celebrate the greatest dynasties in NBA history.” The red, white and blue horsepower logo, associated with the Pistons’ Goin’ to Work era, was used in 2001-05, including the 2003-04 championship season. The horse was first introduced in 1996 under the Pistons’ controversial teal color scheme.

The Pistons’ can has a “Brewed For Motor City” script across the label, along with “Welcome To Hitsville” and “America’s Comeback City.”
