Born to be wild – Steppenwolf

Get your motor runnin’ Head out on the highway Lookin’ for adventure And whatever comes our way Yeah Darlin’ go make it happen Take the world in a love embrace Fire all of your guns at once And explode into space I like smoke and lightning Heavy metal thunder Racin’ with the wind And the feelin’ that I’m under Yeah Darlin’ go make it happen Take the world in a love embrace Fire all of your guns at once And explode into space Like a true nature’s child We were born, born to be wild We can climb so high I never wanna die Born to be wild Born to be wild

Steppenwolf sind “Born To Be Wild” in Bremen am 07.06.1969! Der Song, bekannt aus dem Peter Fonda/ Dennis Hopper Road Movie “Easy Rider”, wurde zur Biker-Hymne und wird für immer mit dem Image von Motorrädern, Outlaws, Rockern und Freiheit verbunden sein. Sometimes described as the first heavy metal song in music history – primarily for the line “heavy metal thunder” in the second verse – the song “Born To Be Wild” is most popular as part of the soundtrack to the Dennis Hopper/ Peter Fonda movie “Easy Rider”. First intended as one of many songs for the soundtrack, the filmmakers quickly realised the potential of the song. Finally, the song appeared in the opening credits of the movie, while Hopper and Fonda riding their Harley choppers through the highways of the American West. Since that time, the song is often associated with a biker and rocker attitude.
